Housing Options


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.
