For Current and Transfer Students

Frequently Asked Questions

We are now utilizing a waitlist for returning and transfer students applying for housing during the 2024-2025 Academic Year.

On-campus housing priority is given to first-year students as a way to help them adjust to the campus and the collegiate experience. However, University Housing has partnered with multiple outside apartment complexes to provide additional housing options to returning/transfer students. You can learn more about this on the Best of Both webpage.

When does the contracting process open for returning and transfer students?

Students began contracting at 10 a.m. Oct. 2, 2023. More than 1,000 off-campus beds managed by University Housing were offered to students. Due to limited availability, we began a waitlist for students as of Monday, Jan. 8.

Will I be able to complete my contract fully?

Every other week students who are are waitlisted will be reviewed and notified if they can contract for housing or if they are still on the waitlist. Students who are waitlisted are not guaranteed housing and are encouraged to begin looking at other housing options within the Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas community.

Where will I be able to live next year as a returning or transfer student?

University Housing worked with partners in the Fayetteville community to provide additional apartment community housing along with limited amounts of spaces on-campus. When looking for partner properties, University Housing prioritizes closeness to campus, community development and proximity to the campus bus routes.

Currently, University Housing has agreements with The Marshall, the Cardinal, College Town Fayetteville and the Locale apartments for housing space.

However, as of Monday, Jan. 8, 2024 all spaces are fully contracted and University Housing is currently waitlisting returning and transfer students for the 2024-2025 academic year.

How much will housing cost for apartments managed by University Housing next year?

Academic Year 2024/2025 rates are pending Board of Trustees approval and will be reflected on the University Housing website by June 15. You may see the proposed rates on the Housing Rates webpage.

What if I want to live in a fraternity or sorority house next year?

We encourage you to speak with your fraternity or sorority leadership as soon as possible about 2024-2025 housing options.
