Housing Rates

2023-2024 Housing Rates

Residence Life Housing Scholarship:  In light of the economic impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on students, Residence Life offered a $1000 per semester scholarship to offset housing costs for the 2022-2023 academic year (fall and spring semesters). This scholarship will be extended through the 2023-24 academic year and will be applied to students' accounts along with housing charges once room assignments are finalized in July (no additional application for the scholarship is necessary). UA Scholars and students in the University Honors College are also eligible for an Academic Honors Housing Scholarship which can be applied along with the Residence Life Scholarship.
