Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a full-time student to live in campus housing?
No. As long as you are enrolled at UA Little Rock in person or online you are eligible to live on campus.

How do I pay for my housing?
Campus Living fees are added to your student account at the beginning of the semester. Students have the option to pay up front for the entire semester or pay monthly installments through the deferred payment plan.

Is there a deadline to apply?
No, but the priority placement deadline for the Fall semester is May 1.

Are private rooms available?
Limited private rooms may be available for upperclassmen based on availability. Additional costs apply.

Can I come see a room?
Of course! Campus tours are scheduled through the Office of Admissions.

Can I move into my room early?
Because the Summer term ends so close to the start of the Fall semester, early Fall move-ins are not available.

What should I bring with me when I move-in?
We have compiled a list of what you should bring with you and a list of things you should not bring.

How are roommates selected?
Students can write in a same gender roommate choice on their Campus Living application. In this case, both students would need to choose each other. If no roommate is selected, the Campus Living Office will assign a roommate based on mutual preferences from the Campus Living application, such as floor choice. Generally, students from the same hometown are not placed together unless they choose each other. Race, religion or national origin are not considered when placing roommates.

Can I change rooms?
Room changes are offered during the beginning of each semester. In order to accommodate late arrivals/applicants, we must wait until about two weeks after the semester has started. The Hall Director for each building will send an email with information about the room change process. In order to participate in the room change process, you must fill out the application sent out by your Hall Director before the deadline. Room changes are not guaranteed. After the room change application closes, the Campus Living Office will evaluate the requests and assign based on availability.

Are meals included in the cost of my room?
No. All residential students will participate in the UA Little Rock dining plan. Because there are several options from which to choose, meal plans are priced separately. Read more about our dining plans.

Where do I park?
Your Campus Living fee includes reserved residential parking. Designated lots are located around the residence halls. Upon registering a vehicle with the Department of Public Safety, residents will receive a parking sticker and their student ID will be activated for the lot assigned to their residence hall.

How do I cancel my housing?
To cancel your housing and meal plan for the fall semester, you must submit the Campus Living Cancellation Form to our office by the August 1 deadline. To cancel your housing and meal plan for the Spring semester, you must submit the same cancellation form by the first Friday in December as defined in the lease. Cancellations received after these deadlines will be subject to a 50% charge of the room fees.

There is a charge on my account that I don’t believe should be there. How do I appeal that charge?
Please read more information on the appeal process.

How do I connect to WiFi or to Ethernet?
To connect to campus WiFi, follow these instructions. If you are trying to connect to the Ethernet port in your room, please contact IT Services.
