Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a full-time student to live in campus housing?
No, but you must be enrolled at UA Little Rock.

Is my lease just for a semester?
No.  Campus Living Lease Agreements cover the entire academic year (fall and spring).

Is my deposit applied toward my housing fees?
No. It stays on account like a security deposit. When you leave Campus Living, you can apply for a refund of the deposit.

What if I pay my deposit, but I don’t end up needing my reserved space? Can I get my deposit back?
Yes, provided the Campus Living Office receives written cancellation notice by the deadline (July 1 for Fall applicants; Dec 1 for Spring applicants)

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. For more information see

Is there a deadline to apply?
No, but the priority placement deadline 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 Recruitment. To sign up for a visit, click here.

Can I change rooms?
Students interested in changing rooms should see their Hall Director. Room Change Day is typically two weeks after classes begin each semester.  If a room change has been approved, your Hall Director will instruct you in the room change procedure.

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.

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.

Are meals included in the cost of my room?
No. Beginning Fall 2011, 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. See for additional information.

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.

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 with you that you can find when you click here.

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 1st deadline. To cancel your housing and meal plan for the spring semester, you must submit the same cancellation form by the December 1st deadline unless otherwise defined in the lease. Cancellations received after these deadlines will be subject to a 50% charge of the room fees.
