Student Essentials

Before the first day of class of class, there are a few things you might need to take care of. We’ve outlined the items and tasks that will help you start the semester.

Student ID Card

You can get your UALR picture ID in the Fitness Center. Enter through the glass double-doors, located in the first floor of the Donaghey Student Center (DSC). Your first card is free.

Free Printing

After you get your ID card, you will have $10 worth of free printing/copying loaded onto your card that can be used in the library. EIT students can also use those funds at the EIT lab. Students also have the option to add money to their account.

Parking Permit

UALR students who park on campus must first register their vehicle with the Department of Public Safety (DPS). To register your vehicle, you will need to know your T-number, make, model, basic color of your car, and your license plate number. The student fee for one parking permit is included in the general fee calculated with tuition. DPS is located in University Plaza.


You can find your textbooks and order them online or bring your schedule to the bookstore and they will help you find them. The bookstore is located on the first floor of the DSC.


Living on campus is a great opportunity. Find out what housing options are available.
