Are you ready to be a Wildcat and bleed cardinal red and navy blue? Are ready to “Bear Down” and have some fun in the sun in the city of Tucson? Then you must be on your way to the University of Arizona!
Tucson is hot, and when I say hot I am referring to the 100+ degree temperatures during the summer! But living in the desert means that there are plenty of fun outdoor activities for you and your new college friends to do on the weekend; anything from horseback riding to rock climbing to exploring Kartchner Caverns. Not to mention the Tucson Convention Center is only a few minutes away from campus, so when your favorite artist comes by on their tour it will be at your doorstep. But before you get ahead of yourself, begin by reserving your moving truck and settling into your new dorm at The U of A!
Living on campus can be an extremely exciting and life-changing experience, but first, you must find the right dorm for you! The University of Arizona has a total of 22 residence halls, mostly co-ed, which are divided into three different neighborhoods. You can choose a hall by price range, style or even featured communities. Regardless of which hall you pick, you will more than likely feel right at home in one of these niche communities, surrounded with peers who share similar interests and ambitions.
Moving To The University
Are you prepared to make the move to campus? Don’t have a printed map of the school? Make sure you keep it handy on moving day so you can navigate from your parking spot to your dorm room; however if you would like to avoid the confusion and chaos of moving in with thousands of over students, try packing your stuff at home and having it shipped and delivered to your dorm. Collegeboxes will help students with this easy service and it’s a great alternative.
