We encourage you to take that first step to live on campus again next fall by signing a housing contract for the 2020-21 academic year.

Those contracts are now available. 

By contracting early, you get first choice of spaces.

Sophomores Welcome

Specific rooms are set aside for upperclassmen who wish to again be part of the on-campus residential experience.

Gibson and Gregson Halls are about 80 percent upperclassmen. These historic buildings are located at the top of Dickson Street, the energetic entertainment district of Fayetteville.

These halls are neighbors to Brough Dining Hall, Starbucks, Slim Chickens and the Greek Theatre.

Nearby Duncan Avenue Apartments offer independent living on campus and the convenience of once-a-semester billing.

Our Newest Hall

University Housing offers a new 708-bed hall called Adohi Hall. It is located on the south side of campus near Pomfret Hall and offers semi-suite and traditional-style living.

Adohi is a Cherokee word that means “woods” and the building features a unique cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction that provides beautiful wooden architecture sustainably sourced.

Creativity and innovation are a focal point of this community. It boasts a recording studio, indoor and outdoor performance areas, music practice rooms, a ‘maker creative space’ and much more.

Also, Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for several creative disciplines like architecture and design, art, entrepreneurship and innovation, music and theatre are located here.

The space is open to all students. Check out more about Adohi Hall.


By living on campus,  you don’t need to worry about a daily commute.

Multiple meal options exist at our dining facilities and on-campus restaurants, which adds to the convenience of walking to class.

Housing rates are charged to your student account. There is only one student bill for on-campus students. Financial aid and scholarships are seamlessly applied toward housing costs.


Residence halls are designed to maximize student safety and offer on-call staff who are available at all times. Our campus enjoys its own police force. Their motto is “Protecting and Serving the Future of Arkansas” and they embrace this duty.

Residential staff members are also trained to spot when the stress of school becomes too much. Counselors-in-residence (CIR’s) can discretely and sensitively offer help when you need someone to talk to about things.


Students living on campus boast a 3.2 Grade Point Average (GPA). These students are also 89 more more likely to attend the university for another year, according to university research. That is statistically ahead of the average off-campus student.

But the greatest on-campus advantage is our vibrant, academic community. Your surrounded by faculty and staff dedicated to your success.
