The office offers individual support to students to assist them in succeeding within an art college environment, including consultation on medical and personal issues affecting academic performance. Students find that Student Affairs is a helpful place to ask general questions and determine what type of assistance might be available to them. The Office of Student Affairs also coordinates the resolution of student disciplinary cases.
The Office of Diversity and Intercultural Development, an integral part of the Division of Student Affairs, bases its philosophy on inclusion and fostering recognition and respect for the voices of all students. The mission is to create a welcoming environment for all students, with a specific focus on the academic, social, and cultural needs of student concerns related to issues of culture, class, race, gender, sexuality, and similar issues.

Residence halls at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) are more than just places to sleep.

The MICA Wellness center supports and promotes physical and mental health of students as well as sustainability. Our services include Student Health, Student Counseling, MICA Fitness, and a Bike Share program.
