Can I stay in my dorm or apartment?

As detailed in the March 13 update from President Robbins, students should not return to campus, as we care about your health and well-being. If you need support in securing suitable off-campus living arrangements, please visit offcampus.arizona.edu.

Students who are already on campus can stay if needed. See Room Consolidation information for more specifics. 

Additionally, students who do not have a suitable alternative can return to campus. Dorms, food service, Campus Health, Student Rec Center, and computer labs are open and will remain open to support you.

What if I can't find alternate housing?

For students who have housing needs, you are welcome to return to your dorm room.

How do I get my mail & packages?

All carriers held deliveries in their facilities over spring break. Starting March 18, carriers will be delivering to the dorms. 

 If you are planning to move out of your dorm: 

  • If there is something you want to receive, please contact the local carrier to pick up their items directly from their facilities.
  • For an item that is currently en route to be delivered, please call the carrier to reroute the delivery address
  • Verify and/or update your address on file with Housing & Residential Life by visiting My UAHome.
  • The resident (or their Community Director or Resident Assisant on their behalf) can email RES-DOT@distribution.arizona.edu and provide permission for the resident's family member or friend to collect their mail or packages. You’ll need to provide the full name of the individual collecting the packages and a general idea of what is to be collected.

If you have already moved out of your dorm:

  • Your mail and/or packages will be returned to sender, as we do not have the capacity to hold mail. Additionally, we are unable to forward packages.
  • Verify and/or update your address on file with Housing & Residential Life by visiting My UAHome.

If you are continuing to live in your dorm:

  • No action on your part is necessary, however please know due to limited staffing, you may not receive a package notification right away. 
Is the Housing office open?

As we still currently are supporting students living in the dorms and those in times of transition, our offices remain open with limited capacity. Additionally, as a part of our COVID-19 response we have modified our operating hours to 10:00AM-4:00PM MST until further notice.
