Dibs Returner Process – Reclaim your Room!

Bears Stay Purple – 2023-24 Returner Application

The DIBs process allows current residents the chance to stay where they are for the next year. Claim your SAME ROOM for the 2023-2024 academic year.  The dibs process is allowed in many of our upperclassmen housing options.  The following complexes/buildings are eligible to reclaim your space for the following year:

New Hall

Donaghey Hall

Bear Village buildings 6-9

Stadium Park buildings 1-6

Erbach Apartments

Oak Tree Apartments

Torreyson Apartments

If you are not eligible for dibs, you will receive an email from Housing to let you know about the Priority Room Selection process.

Current Freshmen Students:

We allow up to 10% of the building to return to the freshmen level halls.  This process will not be available during the online dibs process, if you are interested in returning to a Freshmen Experience Hall (Bernard, Carmichael, Conway, State) please email Housing@uca.edu and if you are interested in returning to a Residential College (Arkansas, Baridon, Bear, Hughes), you will have to contact Residential Colleges at residentialcolleges@uca.edu

To reclaim your room follow these steps:

If you have space and want to pull another student into your room as your roommate/suitemate, we will need an email from you and the student(s) you are requesting sent to Housing@uca.edu with your name, ID numbers and where you are staying.  You must email us between March 9th – March 10tth at 11:59pm.  After that, spaces will be available for the open room selection process.
