Housing Options

Welcome to your UA Home

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.
