Over 6,600 undergrad students and 300 grad students live on the University of Arizona campus
in 23 undergraduate residence halls (aka, “dorms”) and one graduate
& professional student apartment complex. These “homes away from
home” are located across campus, which means no matter where you live, you
are close to campus resources – from academic buildings where you take class,
to the Rec Center where you workout, to the Student Union where you grab a bite.

year students. Students living on campus have consistently outperformed their non-dorm
counterparts on all academic measures! Consider these facts about our
