More than 6,200 students “call #UARKHome.” For them, life on campus means literally living on campus.
University Housing offers a range of over 20 residential communities across campus in a variety of architecture styles — traditional, semisuite, and suite style.
First-year students are required to live on campus. Ask any student about their early college life, and you are bound to hear a story about that “one time” in Pomfret or Maple Hill or “The Quad.” Residence halls are more than just a place to rest your head for the night. Campus partnerships and a commitment to designing spaces that promote community mean University Housing offers some unexpected points of interest. housing.uark.edu
