Non-Approved Vendors

UA Housing & Residential Life partners with approved third-party vendors to offer you additional services and conveniences. If you contract with a vendor not on the above list (i.e. a non-approved vendor), you or the vendor may have to make special arrangements to be on campus during move-in:

  • Non-approved vendors are not allowed inside a dorm without being escorted by the student living in the dorm, during the entire time they are inside the building.
  • Housing & Residential Life will not accept – nor sign for – deliveries from a non-approved vendor (we will accept packages from mail services like USPS and UPS during regular schedule mail delivery)
  • All non-approved vendors will be subject to the move-in process and guidelines
  • All non-approved vendors are subject to abide by parking enforcement signage at all times
  • Vendors should coordinate directly with UA Parking & Transportation Services for large vehicle access to dorms or parking
  • Housing & Residential Life is not responsible for any issues that arise between you and a non-approved vendor
