Welcome to Student Housing
Living in the residence halls (dorms) is a once in a lifetime and phenomenal experience. But we know that figuring out what you need to do and when you need to do what can be daunting, especially if you are a student new to the University of Arizona. Therefore, this page gives you an overview of the student housing process.
Since living in the halls is a huge part of the college experience, the number of applications we receive exceeds the number of spaces we have in the halls. For this reason, we can’t guarantee campus housing to everyone who wants it. Good news for incoming freshmen – if you submit your housing application and pay the $150 non-refundable housing application fee by April 1, you are guaranteed to get an assignment! Also, we can’t promise that you will get one of your top hall choices – you’d be surprised at how many people want to live in the same dorms as you! You will self-assign to your hall once you complete the application process, the sooner you apply the more choices you will have!
Did you know that first-year students are 80% of our campus housing population? Because of this, the steps below are geared toward new, incoming students. Please visit other parts of the website if you are a current resident looking to return, summer school resident or graduate student.
