About our residence halls:
For many, an important part of college life is living on campus in a residence hall. It provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for friendships and activities. At UA, only a portion of the student body lives on campus, giving our resident students a taste of a small-college atmosphere.
We want your room to be a place where you feel at home, so each one is planned and furnished with that in mind. We have coed residence halls; double rooms and suites and high rises. There are even on-campus apartments. Although we can't guarantee students get their first choice in room locations, we certainly try our best to accommodate their wishes.
Freshmen outside of Summit, Portage, Stark, Medina and Wayne counties are required to live in the University residence halls their first year.
Dining plan options and costs
We have a variety of dining plan options available to suit your lifestyle. The table below shows the plans available and the cost per semester for each. Below that, you will find a detailed description of our most popular plans.
- Each meal plan has a total of five guest meals per semester.
- Residence hall students are required to participate in the University dining plan options, except residents of the Exchange Street Apartments with kitchens.
