Getting Started


College is different and we don't know what to expect next year. Honestly. We don't know.*

Your college experience may look different than it does in our brochure (the photos are pre-Tiger King). 

There’s one thing we do know: Living on campus is still an awesome experience. Life-changing even.

And while we can't promise you what dorm life will be like in 2021-2022, we promise we will be there to help you figure it out. Because that’s what Wildcats do.

*Seriously, if you ask us, we won't lie to you.

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. 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!
