Residence halls include spacious lounges for study sessions and social gatherings

Welcome home! Housing and Residence Life strives to create a home away from home where all ERAU students are able to thrive academically, professionally, and personally. As a new student to ERAU you might have a bunch of questions about living on campus. We encourage you to look at our website for pictures of the halls and floor plans. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for some quick answers. Please do not hesitate to contact our office for any additional support or answers. We can be reached at or (928) 777-3744.

We will provide you with the single most important tip about living on-campus: APPLY EARLY. The online housing application and deposit are both needed for your application to be complete. The earlier you apply the better chances you have to choose the room and roommate you want. Transfer students (those that are not required to live on campus) are not guaranteed housing and your application date will determine if you get housing.

First-Year Students

The First Year Experience program is designed to help all first-year students with the transition to college on academic, social, personal and educational levels. Staff are specially trained to handle first-year transitional issues. All first-year students who have graduated high school within 12 months of matriculation are required to live in University-managed housing for their first full academic year to include fall and spring and have a seven-day access or Mega Block (250 blocks) meal plan. Exceptions are made for students who are over 21 years old, are married or have a dependent, have a permanent address in Yavapai county at time of application to ERAU, or students who have lived on-campus at another institution of higher education for at least two semesters.

For more information, please see the ERAU Undergraduate Catalog.

New students (students who completed a New Student application) who decide not to attend ERAU are able to cancel their housing contract on or before June 1 without any financial penalty. New students cancelling their contract on or after June 2nd due to not attending ERAU forfeit their housing deposit. New students who are attending ERAU wishing to cancel their contract must submit a request to be released from their contract. See Terms and Conditions on our Housing page for break contract information and fees.

Transfer Students

We do not guarantee housing to transfer students (those not required to live on campus); however, we have some spaces set aside for transfer students. Because space is limited, we typically assign transfer students to the first available space; however we do our best to match roommates according to major/college and room-type preference indicated on your application. Application date is the driving factor for space, it is imperative that transfer students complete their application early. The first round of transfer room assignments occurs in April. Transfer students will be notified via ERAU email of their housing status in early May.
