6.1 Billing and Payment

University Housing does not send billing statements. 

All billing transactions are processed and billed through the Treasurer’s Office. 

Charges are placed on student accounts by semester; however, students are financially and legally responsible for the entire contract period of the full academic year. 

Students pay a $240 administrative charge when contracting with University Housing. That charge consists of a $40 non-refundable application charge and a $200 advance payment that is applied toward spring housing charges. 

Credit for the advance payment will be given by placing room charges of $200 less than the stated semester rate for residents assigned room on residents University student account for the spring semester. 


Room and board payments may be made at one time for each semester or as arranged through the University Treasurer’s Office. Payment in full for each semester or the first installment payment must be received by the due date as designated on the University Billing Statement. Students are responsible for paying all room and board charges for the entire term of the contract. 

There is a $35 non-refundable service fee assessed for the processing of an installment plan. 

Send payments directly to the University of Arkansas P.O. Box 1404, Fayetteville, AR 72702. 

Be sure that the name and University ID number are written clearly on all checks. 

Room and board charges for the upcoming fall semester academic year will not be placed on residents' account until mid-July. Students should not send any payments for room and board to the University until those charges are applied. 

Spring charges will be added in early January.
