Start Out with Something in Common
This is your chance to be a part of an exciting and meaningful residence hall community. You are invited to live with students who share similar personal or academic interests and goals.
To be eligible to live in a Living-Learning or Theme Community, you must first submit your housing application and application fee.
Honors students are eligible to live in one of two Honors halls (Árbol de La Vida or Yuma Hall). When you receive your invitation to self-assign, you will be able to select your preferred hall, based on availability. Only students admitted to the UA Honors College may live in those two halls.
Live with students who share similar interests and goals simply by selecting a theme community when you self-assign to a hall (based on availability). Participation in a related major or program is not required.

I received my self-assign invitation but I have applied to a Living-Learning community, what should I do?
If you received your self-assign invitation, that means you have not been assigned to your requested Living-Learning Community in our housing system. This could mean:
- The college or department has not approved your request yet – for now please select a hall you would like to live in until you receive your approval.
- The college or department may have approved you but it isn’t in our housing system yet – for now please select a hall you would like to live in and as soon as we receive your approval from the college/department we will assign you to the specific living-learning community.
What should I do if I have been assigned to a Living-Learning Community but have decided I don’t want to live there?
Please contact our housing assignment department at 520-621-6501 so that they can help you.
