Room Assignments &
General Information

Summer Housing Contracts are now available.

Summer housing contracts are not offered online. If you are a current student please come by the Housing Office at 960 W. Douglas St. (behind the Garland shopping center) to pick up a hard copy.

If you are not a current student or you do not live in the Fayetteville area then please send us your name and address so that we can mail you the hard copy.

Complete the contract and return it to Housing as soon as possible because space is reserved on a first come, first served basis. Students attending summer school 2015 will be assigned to the Northwest Quad (NWQ).

Students must be enrolled and attending at least three (3) hours for credit at the University of Arkansas in the summer session for which they have contracted. After a student checks in or uses their meal plan the contract cannot be terminated unless the student withdraws from the University. The contract duration is for the complete summer session selected by the student as indicated on the completed contract.

The Northwest Quad consists primarily of suites with four individual bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a shared common space per suite. Each bedroom has cable and network connections. The common room has cable and network connections. There is one locking closet per bedroom, with each bedroom and closet combination having its own unique key.

Residence hall spaces are available to all students regardless of race, color, religion or national origin. University Housing welcomes both graduate and undergraduate students.

If you have a disability that may require an accommodation, please contact the Center for Educational Access (CEA) at (479) 575-3104 and set up an appointment to meet with them. We cannot make special accommodations until we receive a formal request from the CEA Office.

Students should bring their own pillows, pillowcases, sheets, blankets and towels. “Coin free” laundry is available, allowing summer school students to use the laundry equipment without using coins or Razorbuck$.

Students in summer housing are required to adhere to policies described in the 2014-2015 Student Handbook and 2014-2015 University Housing Residence Hall Handbook.

Items may be placed in storage at NWQ on May 6 and 7, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. by appointment only.

Campus Dining Services

Food Service for summer school students will be provided at the Fulbright Dining Center at the Northwest Quad.

Summer school housing students are not required to have a meal plan.

Block meal plans cover the entire summer session as determined by the specific block meal plan purchased. Once a meal is used it is not "reset," but is subtracted from the meals remaining to the student for the remainder of the session.

Any unused flex dollars and/or meals remaining on the student's flex plan at the end of the specific summer session will be forfeited.

Summer school students are welcome to dine in Brough Commons or the Pomfret Dining Center when these operations are open for summer conference participants.

Please check posted signs, http://dining.uark.edu, and the Razorback Information Board (RIBtv) for specials, the most up to date information and various hours of operation.
