Off-Campus Living

Do you live off campus?


Off-Campus Student Services assists commuter and adult students in removing obstacles that may impede their success at the university. 

Off-Campus Student Services provides resources and referrals for current and prospective undergraduate commuters, including:

  • First Semester Students Living at Home
  • Upperclassmen Living Off-Campus
  • Adult and Non-traditional Students


Commuters (also known as off-campus students) are undergraduates not living in a residence hall, fraternity, or sorority house. More than 15,000 University of Arkansas undergraduate students are commuters. This student population includes traditional-aged students who live with family members, as well as non-traditional students who are age 25+, are married, or have dependents. Students attending college part-time are defined as non-traditional, as are those who are financially independent or have a non-traditional high school diploma.


The Off-Campus Housing Website is a free, searchable student housing database. Current and prospective students can utilize the site to locate off-campus housing and search for potential student roommates. A message board also allows students to post items for sale and communicate with other students regarding housing.

Wake Up Wednesdays

Wake Up Wednesdays offers free morning coffee and doughnuts! The weekly breakfast is held in the Commuter Lounge on the 6th floor of the Arkansas Union and takes place during the fall and spring semesters.
