Students who live on campus during their freshman year have the opportunity to get more involved in campus and leadership activities, make lasting friends from around the world, and immerse themselves in the college experience both inside and outside the classroom.
Research tells us that students living on campus earn higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate sooner, and have a stronger connection with faculty, staff, and peers in their community.
That’s why we strongly encourage all freshmen to live on campus, if possible. We recognize, however, that some freshmen may choose not to live on campus for a variety of reasons, including financial hardships, medical condition, or other responsibilities.
So, while living on campus is not required of all freshmen attending the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, please be aware that some students who are awarded significant scholarships may have a requirement to live on campus.
If you have any questions about living on campus during your freshman year, please contact the Office of Campus Living, 501.661.1743, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
