Welcome to On-Campus Living at UAA
E. M. Forster's two-word challenge—"Only Connect"—has long been a favorite quote of ours. We think that's a fantastic philosophy to pursue as a resident of the UAA on-campus living community. We urge you to make the most of your on-campus advantage, by truly connecting to your fellow students, your classes, and to campus organizations and activities. University Housing & Dining Services and the Department of Residence Life are here to help you make the connection to all of the great resources available at UAA. We have many exciting things planned for residents of the on-campus living community this year, and hope that the facilities, programs, and activities we provide make a positive impact on your life as a college student.
The "Guide to Living on Campus" serves as your resource to all of the policies and processes associated with on-campus living. Please keep it handy as a reference throughout the year. If you have any questions that are not answered by the "Guide," or if there is anything else we may do to assist you, please give us a call or stop by our offices –"Housing" is located in Commons 101, and "Residence Life" is located in Main Apartment Complex (MAC) 6-103.
Thanks for choosing to live on campus; we look forward to getting to know you as we learn and grow together throughout the year.

Our Service to Residents
Our team is dedicated to serving the needs of students living on campus. The programs, services, and activities we offer are designed to augment students' educational experience. Our friendly staff is well trained and knowledgeable about the resources available to help you succeed. Programs and activities provide the framework for active participation in each community. Workshop topics range from college survival skills, roommate relationships,and alcohol awareness to global diversity, career planning, and personal safety. In the area of leadership and involvement,residential students have a strong voice regarding campus issues through their local governing body, the Residence Hall Association (RHA) and Hall Councils. New interest groups form each year as students' discover mutual interests. We promote a diverse cultural view among staff, residents, and student organizations. This helps encourage an awareness and appreciation for differences, harmonious understanding, and provides a culturally rich environment. Collectively, we recognize individual rights to cultural expression and encourage exploration of other traditions. Multiculturalism embraces the breadth of experiences represented within the diverse University community. Through student programming, workshops, staff training, and enlightened leadership, the departments of Residence Life and UHDCS are committed to creating a living environment that fosters a climate of mutual respect among all of its members.
