student life & housing

Kettering, a suburb located near Dayton, Ohio, is a safe environment for study, work, and play. About 70 percent of SAA students move to the Kettering area, while others commute from their hometown.

SAA prepares a Housing Guide each year that lists the preferred housing communities.

The following are typical monthly rent payments of SAA students during a recent school year.*

  • 1 bedroom/1 person paying rent: $600 per month

*Please note these numbers are intended for use as a reference only. These numbers are rent only and will vary by apartment/rental unit andAnneApartment4 amenities offered. Keep in mind you will also have additional bills, such as gas/electric, Internet service, and water. Some apartments may cover some or all of these expenses.

SAA helps you find a roommate or someone to split gas money with.

While SAA does not provide or guarantee housing, you get to choose your roommates and we are here to assist you during the selection process. If you have any housing/roommate/rideshare questions or need further assistance, please contact SAA Housing Coordinator Abbie Heaney at 877-300-9866 or
