UA Office of Research Administration

In February 2019, the ORA moved to Leigh Hall, in the heart of campus.  UA metered visitor parking is usually available in front of the James A. Rhodes Arena or in the Student Union loop.  Both locations are less than a city block walk to Leigh Hall and can be located using the Maps feature on UA's homepage.
