Undergraduate Students Living On-Campus
Living on campus in the dorms is a great way to become part of the University of Arizona community. Our dorms 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 dorm on campus at least one year have a 50% higher 4-year graduation rate than students who never live in a dorm?

Most of dorm rooms are doubles (for two people). Housing & Residential Life also offers single rooms (one person), triple rooms (three people) and quadruple rooms (four people). Most of the dorms have community bathrooms on their floor or wing, which are shared by students of the same gender. There are also a few dorms 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 the buildings have a community kitchen which is mostly used for small meals or snacks.
Rooms include all furniture, utilities (electricity, water), local telephone, and internet and Wi-Fi access.
