Construction underway on UA residence halls

FAYETTEVILLE -- Construction is now underway on the University of Arkansas' newest student residence halls, with the buildings scheduled to open in time for the fall 2019 semester.

The Stadium Drive Residence Halls, which will be located south of Pomfret Hall and east of Bud Walton Arena, are the first new student housing additions on campus since Founders Hall opened in 2013. The new residence halls are conceived as a Living Learning Community, housing several multidisciplinary communities focused on architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, art, theater, music and English.

The design concept is meant to allow on-campus students to live alongside others who share their interests and participate in monthly activities that promote academic and personal success. The Living Learning Community will also provide unique access to faculty members and a variety of events and study groups.

The halls will have several extra features to facilitate the community activities, including recording audio, flexible design and art studio, classrooms, gallery spaces, music practice rooms, dance and yoga studio and performance spaces.
