    I don't believe that there are any trade school or even a community college that offers student housing. With cosmetology school, however, please forgo those private overpriced for-profit beauty/tech schools such as 'paul mitchell, the school', 'aveda institute', 'toni guy', 'marinello', 'empire beauty', 'regency' and others and instead consider the more affordable County Vo-Tech school or Community College as long as the program is accredited within the industry. It might take the graduate a couple of years to 'get a book' (of regular customers) before Possibly making a decent salary. Then the person may be struggling to pay for rent and other expenses while trying to repay all of those student loans. An individual may go to the more affordable county vocational school or community college and then take continuing education classes which are required anyway :) These consumer sites have posts by former students about those private $$ for-profit tech schools and please heed the students' warnings:

    I don't personally know anything about this school, but it's supposed to be a community college and their programs meet the state licensing requirements for the 'state board of cosmetology' and 'barbering' - Atlanta Technical College has barbering and cosmetology (the cosmetology concentration may allow more options though :) http://www.atlantatech.edu/ and can click 'catalog' or such.

    For general career info: http://www.bls.gov/oco and can search 'barbers and cosmetologists' or such.
