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.
Being part of a community
Increasing your chance of academic success
Campus housing is a great way to make life-long friends, be part of a community
and join fellow students in those things you are passionate about.
Living in campus housing is a choice, a smart choice (literally!) for incoming first
year students. Students living on campus have consistently outperformed their non-dorm
counterparts on all academic measures! Consider these facts about our
first year hall residents . . . over the past 10+ years:
- GPAs are 4-12% higher
- Freshman to sophomore year retention rates are 9-14% higher
- 4-year graduation rates are 40-63% higher
If those numbers don’t convince you of the value of living in campus housing,
remember being a college student is about balance. Residence Life creates environments
where you can be academically successful and have a life!
