Academic Honors Housing Scholarship

UAA is pleased to offer UA Scholars and students in the University Honors College (hereafter referred to as “Academic Honors Students”) a $1,500 annual housing scholarship! The Academic Honors Housing Scholarship is applied each fall and spring semester as a $750 discount off room charges.

The residential community at UAA provides students an unforgettable experience built on the tenets of educational success, social responsibility and community connectedness. Staff members in the Department of Residence Life are dedicated to the success of residents, and work hard to ensure our residence halls and apartments foster a social, educational and inclusive environment.

Academic Honors Living Learning Community (LLC):

After their first year as a student at UAA (see the First-Year-Residential Experience webpage for more information) or living in UAA student housing, Academic Honors Students have the exciting opportunity to be a part of the Academic Honors Living Learning Community (LLC). Taking part in the Academic Honors LLC is an opportunity for students to live with other academically-focused residents, as well as programs and services tailored to this specific group of residents. Residence Life collaborates with staff and faculty from across the institution to make this community a fun and scholarly place to live and learn. 

Space in the LLC is limited so be sure and submit your housing application as early as possible as assignments are generally made on a first-come, first-served basis. For detailed instructions on how to apply for student housing, please visit the Residence Life How to Apply webpage. Note: Residents are not required to live in the LLC to receive the Academic Honors Housing Scholarship.

Academic Honors Eligibility

In order to qualify for the Academic Honors Housing Scholarship, a student must only meet the eligibility requirements for either the UA Scholars Award or the University Honors College. Being a UA Scholar and in the University Honors College does not increase the award amount of $750. For more information regarding eligibility requirements, please visit the UA Scholars or University Honors College website

Terms and Conditions

Eligible residents can receive both the Academic Honors Housing Scholarship and the General Housing Scholarship for a total possible annual award of $2,500. The Academic Honors Housing Scholarship can only be awarded in the form of a discount (i.e., a reduction in the amount charged to a student’s account) and cannot be used to pay for the deposit, application fee or any other charges or fees a student owes to UAA. The discount will automatically be applied to the student accounts of eligible students through the end of the add/drop period each fall and spring semester. Residents who become eligible after this date must contact the Department of Residence Life at in order to have the discount applied to their student account. Requests to apply the discount after the add/drop period will be accepted up until the withdrawal deadline each semester.  

In the event a student cancels their Housing and Dining Agreement and is eligible for a full or partial refund of their housing costs, the Academic Honors Housing Scholarship will be removed from the student’s account and the student will receive any refund they qualify for based on the actual rate of the room. The refund schedule can be found on the Residence Life Cancellation webpage. For more information on current housing and dining rates, please visit the Residence Life Rates webpage
