Residence Life

“My UCA experience would not have been the same if I had not lived in a residential college for my first two years. Living on campus acclimated me to UCA, provided me with lifelong friendships, encouraged me to get involved, and helped me develop as a person. Making the choice to live in a residence hall or a residential college is one that you will not regret!” -Spencer Sims, UCA Senior

College is the most exciting time of your life, so make the most of it! Living in a residence hall or a residential college is the best way to experience UCA. Why?

Living on campus is convenient!
All of our residential communities come complete with room furnishings, cable TV, Internet, community style or suite bathrooms, and free laundry facilities. You can also cook a gourmet meal in the kitchen of your residence hall or hang out with your friends in the student lobby space!
Residence halls are just minutes away from anything you might need. Classrooms, dining options, the library, and recreational facilities – they are all right at your doorstep!

Living on campus is exciting!
Studies show that students who live on campus are more involved in academic and extracurricular activities.
Residential college students experience every element of student life. Activities such as field trips, camping excursions, intramural sports, volunteer opportunities, and social events, develop strong friendships and provide unforgettable experiences.
Living with a roommate is an essential part of university life. You and your new roommate can create your own exciting space with posters, photos, and other decorations! Submit a housing application here.

Living on campus is supportive!
Each residential community has its own team of experts, including Resident Assistants and Residence Coordinators, whose main priority is to help students. They provide guidance, plan social and educational events, supervise the daily operation of each residence, and work closely with campus police to ensure student safety.
Residence halls also provide study rooms and access to campus resources. It’s no surprise that students living on campus have a higher grade point average and more frequently complete their degree on time!
You will be provided with a supportive environment to learn alongside your friends, interact with people from all walks of life, reach your goals, and pursue your dreams.

If you’re looking for a convenient, exciting, and supportive place to experience college, UCA’s residence halls and residential colleges are the perfect fit! Our mission is to create living and learning communities that inspire students to become empowered global citizens. We hope that you will be one of these students!
