Getting Started

For 2024-2025 Housing

There are so many great reasons to live on campus – you’ll do better in school, make lifelong friends, get the support to succeed, and live where everything is happening. Apply for housing as soon as you are admitted to Arizona, even before you officially commit. The earlier you apply for housing and complete your housing application, the more dorms you’ll have to choose from during Room Selection. Hurry, we often fill up!

Note: We are unable to guarantee housing for all students. Learn about our waiting list.
