Living on campus in the residence halls (dorms) is a great way to become part of the University of Arizona community. Our residence halls offer a great way to meet people, live close to your classes and campus activities and provide a strong support system to help you adjust to life in America and our University campus. Did you know that students who live in a residence hall at least one year have a 50% higher 4-year graduation rate than students who never live in a hall?

Choices for Living On-Campus

  • Academic year (August – May, closes during winter break)
  • Academic year and winter break (August – May, open during winter break)
  • Summer housing for students attending Summer school

Most of our residence hall rooms are doubles or are for two people. We also offer single rooms (one person), triple rooms (three people) and quad rooms (four people). Most of the halls have community bathrooms on their floor or wing which are shared by students of the same gender. We also have a few halls with different types of bathrooms: a suite-style bathroom, where two rooms of students of the same gender share a bathroom; and a private bathroom inside the room, where the students in the room share a bathroom. All of our halls have a community kitchen which is mostly used for small meals or snacks.

Residence halls include all furniture, utilities (electricity, water), local telephone*, and internet access. 

*Rawls/Eller Lodge does not have phone lines.

Additional Information About On-Campus Housing Options

Can I cook if I live in the residence halls?

Community kitchens are offered in all of our residence halls. Students typically use this community space to prepare small meals or snacks, with no restrictions on the types of food prepared or spices used. Community kitchens equipped with full-sized stoves and refrigerators. Pots and pans can be checked out from the front desk of your hall. Since these kitchens are shared by all we do not recommend that they be used for every meal. We strongly recommend that you purchase a campus meal plan to eat at the more than 40 eateries located around campus. Arizona Student Unions’ professional dining staff is available to assist in finding menu options that fit your needs, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free offerings.
