Living in University Housing costs about $4,336.00 per semester for the 2012-2013 academic year. Living off-campus in an apartment can vary greatly depending on type of accommodations, roommates, and other factors.
The University of Arkansas has an off-campus housing department with resources that allow you to search for housing, compare prices, determine proximity to campus, and get help in finding used furniture. You can also find information on roommates, utilities, landlord contracts, etc. To use the site you will first need to sign up for a guest account.
The School of Law is located on the north side of campus, as shown on the UA Campus map. There are apartments, duplexes, and houses for rent nearby.
