Room Assignment Process

Hall preferences will be reviewed in the order listed on a student's application. Assignments will be made based on room availability. Assignment letters with check-in instructions will be emailed to your preferred email address as designated on UAOnline. Housing assignments and roommate contact information can be found on my MyHousing home page. Room floor plans can be found on the hall pages.

Once you have applied for housing, additional campus forms and information are available through Admissions





Roommate Preferences

After you submit a housing application, you will be able to match yourself to a preferred roommate. Ensure your requested roommate has submitted a housing application.

Follow the path of logging into your Housing Portal and click on Room Selection > Roommate/Suitemate and request your intended roommate (they will be sent an email that they have been requested as a roommate). Your intended roommate will confirm your request. You are now matched.

  • Incoming first year students can only be matched with incoming first year students.
  • Only matched requests will be considered.
  • Roommate preferences are not guaranteed and are subject to room availability.
  • Please contact the Residence Life Central Office for roommate requests or charges after you receive an assignment letter.

Housing Payment Options

Residents can explore Housing Rates and options to find what residence hall fits their needs.

For monthly rent or semester room charges, check-out charges, residents can pay in person,  online through UAOnline account, wire transfer or their UA College Savings Plan. For more information visit the Bursar's Office in the first floor or Signers' Hall.
