The online application includes 1) the Housing Lease, 2) Housing Application (ranking housing preferences), 3) Meal Plan Selection, 4) Roommate information, and 5) the Residential College application questions. This questions (limited to 140 characters each) are very important and you should put some thought into answering them. Remember, you are applying for an academic program, as well as a place to stay.  Your answers will (in part) determine if your living & learning community preferences align with our criteria. What are we looking for? You should:
  • Be excited to identify with the mission and theme of your chosen Residential College
  • Be able to take the UCA Core classes offered by your chosen Residential College
  • Desire to engage in curricular and co-curricular programming that will connect your learning to local, regional, national and worldwide opportunities
You will notice the Housing Application is divided into two choices for freshmen: Freshman Residence Halls and Freshman Residential Colleges. Make sure to rank 1 (highest) to 4 (lowest) the Residential College choices. If you need a refresher on EDGE@Hughes, HPaW@Baridon, The Stars@Short/Denney, Biz@Bear or STEM@Arkansas, go to http://uca.edu/residential/.  You can also consult the UCA Residential Colleges view book at http://www.bluetoad.com/publication/?i=264488.
You will also need to visit Self-Service in myUCA to pay the $100 Housing Deposit! Neither your Residential College nor your housing application is not complete until this step has been taken!
