2nd Year+ Housing

We're excited to offer NEW housing options for 2nd year & above students.

Applications open in October (you'll pick your dorm and room)!

Deciding where to live after your first year at Arizona can be a big deal. Whether you're looking for academic support, amenities, convenience, value, or just want your own space, we have more options for 2nd Year+ and Transfer Wildcats - including more single rooms, rooms with full-size beds, and designated 2nd Year+ communities in some dorms.

The following are housing options for upper division students (however students are eligible to live in any dorm). Access to these rooms is based on availability and is subject to change. Housing & Residential Life reserves the right to back fill rooms in any community.

Apache-Santa Cruz

Live on Highland Avenue in a single room! Enjoy the space of a double room to yourself and also get: the lowest priced single on Highland, convenient access to Campus Rec & Highland Market, as well as the amenities of a brand-new 1st floor kitchen space in the fall. Choose your room before mid-May (when new incoming students can pick an Apache-Santa Cruz single) and tell a friend to do the same!

Árbol de la Vida

Now open to all students, with it's own gym facilities and multiple study rooms, Árbol de la Vida is home to one of the new 2nd Year+ Communities! This community offers returning students both double and some single rooms that are directly next to the gyms in Árbol de la Vida and also have their own dedicated study rooms. Check out the 2nd floor building A & D (A200s and D200s) for either double or single rooms.

Coronado Singles 

It's time to have your own room! With campus views and twice as much space, the 8th floor of Coronado is now only single rooms with suite-style bathrooms. Choose your room before mid-May (when new incoming students can pick a Coronado single) and tell a friend to do the same!

Honors Village

The Honors Village has enhanced the Honors Wildcat experience. Featuring dorm and apartment-style housing for more than 1,000 students, students can return to live in the Honors Village.

Pima Lodge

Located in the center of campus Pima Lodge is the new dorm for returning students! Pima Lodge offers returning students suite-style dorms with some single rooms having full sized beds and a proposed lower rate. In addition to a new kitchen on the top floor of the building, the community kitchen is renovated and refreshed. 

Build Your Community

In addition to picking your own roommate (if you have one), you and your friends can pick rooms near one another. Check out our recommendations and tell your friends to pick a room near you!

Villa del Puente - South: Want to live close to Highland Market & Campus Rec? Live in S200s and S300s.

Navajo/Pinal (Stadium): Snag one of the largest rooms on campus. Live in the 200s.

Cochise- Adjoined Doubles: What's better than two double rooms that share a common living area. Look for the room type Double-Adjoined.


Why is my current room not available to me?

  • If you currently live in a theme community, you will not have the option to return to your current room in the housing application. Applications for theme communities are a part of the housing application. If you are interested in living in a theme community next year, you are welcome to apply inside your housing application. If you are accepted, we will assign/reassign you to a room in the community.
  • If you are living in rooms that will be part of new or expanded theme communities next fall, you will not have the option to return to your current room in the housing application.
  • If you currently live in a room adapted for students with disabilities, you will not have the option to return to your current room since we need to hold the room for new students who may need those accommodations.

Late Cancellation Fees

Schedule and cancellation penalty amounts are as follows:

  • If you apply by May 1, payment of the Rent Down Payment (RDP) is due by May 1 to avoid cancellation of your housing application and assignment. Once paid, the RDP is not refundable.

  • If you apply after May 1, you must pay the RDP to be eligible for assignment.  The RDP is only refundable if you cancel your housing application BEFORE you are assigned to a room. 

  • If you have been assigned to a room and you cancel your housing May 16-June 30: you will be charged a $300 late cancellation fee.

  • If you have been assigned to a room and your housing application is cancelled on or after July 1: you will be charged a $600 late cancellation fee.

  • Option 1 – Requesting a Roommate 

Our housing system requires that you select your roommate BEFORE you choose your room. So if you want to make sure you have the roommate you want, you will need to use the Roommate Search/Request tools in your housing application to identify and/or request your roommate. You must complete and/or accept a roommate request before you select your room. When you select your room, the first roommate in the process will pull the other roommate into the selected room. Once you have selected a room, you will no longer have access to the Roommate Search/Request tools. If you have already chosen a room but still want to request a roommate, you will have to give up your room assignment in order to do so.

  • Option 2 – Room Selection Without a Roommate Request 

Another option for you and your roommate is to individually choose spaces in the same room. You can not however, do it at the same time. When one roommate selects a room from which to choose a bed space, the entire room/suite will be ‘locked’ until that student chooses their bed space and/or the 5-minute hold period expires. Once one of you has chosen and selected a bed space choice, the other student can then select the room and choose the other available bed space.


If you choose a bed space and a bed space in the room is still vacant after May 1, your assignment is subject to consolidation into a different room of the same type and in the same dorm (with other returning students), prior to room selection opening to new students in mid-May.
