DigiPen's ProjectFUN offers limited housing to students participating in summer programs for two or more weeks, including Summer Workshop and Pre-College Students.
ProjectFUN students will have the option of living in one of DigiPen’s two-bedroom apartment-style dormitories, which are used by full-time college students during the school year. Students will also have access to the DigiPen shuttle service to and from campus on weekdays.
Please be aware that because housing is extremely limited*, we may not be able to accommodate every student in need of housing for the summer. Our recently prepared Visitor Guide [PDF] has many suggestions of local lodgings, if you require alternatives to the housing offered by DigiPen.
For housing questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*During Sessions 2 and 3 (July 5 – July 15, July 18 – July 29), housing priority will be given to students who have already been approved for our Pre-College Program.

ProjectFUN students staying in one of DigiPen's housing units (see above) will have access to the DigiPen shuttle service to and from campus on weekdays. Students under the age of 18 will be required to be accompanied by an adult on the shuttle. The shuttle is unable to accommodate car seats, so students under 8 years of age or under 80 pounds will need to find another form of transportation. Please be aware that the shuttle is on a first come first serve basis.
To travel around other parts of Redmond and Seattle, students will need to find their own means of transportation. DigiPen suggests using the King County Metro System's trip planner to find bus and train routes to and from DigiPen and the surrounding areas.
DigiPen Institute of Technology is located at 9931 Willows Road NE, Redmond, WA.
