  • Click on ‘Housing Deposit’

Housing Options
UCA offers in-state tuition for international students who live on campus. Choose from a variety of campus halls and apartments. Housing applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about Housing Options.

Once you have completed your housing application and paid your housing deposit, you will be eligible for a housing assignment. However, this may not be done immediately. When you are given a housing assignment, it will show up in the myHousing section of your myUCA. An assignment will not be given until your housing deposit is received. If you have not completed the housing application process by the time of your arrival, you will move into a temporary housing assignment.

Residential College Opportunity
Many international students choose to stay in Residential Colleges. The purpose of Residential Colleges is to develop a living/learning community for students and faculty with a shared interest.
The Residential Colleges give you something no other residence hall offers…a full-time UCA faculty member living in the hall. These Resident Masters help to create an extended family atmosphere within the college (plus they’re pretty cool). Also, smaller class size in the Residential Colleges allows for more interaction with your other professors.
In addition, since many of the Residential College classes are held in the residence hall, students can often attend class without worrying about parking hassles or bad weather.
