UAT sponsors a unique student housing program in our on campus residence hall. Founder’s Hall is full of innovators, technophiles and future industry leaders who have found their home away from home here.
Founder’s Hall is the center of UAT’s vibrant Residence Life Community. Situated right on campus, Founder’s Hall is just one minute across the quad from your classes and is the perfect complement to the UAT classroom experience.
Founder’s has full wireless coverage and basic cable in every room. The high-definition Movie Room is equipped with a 120-inch, 1080p projection screen and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound. The residence hall’s Think Tanks are unique, soundproof rooms equipped with whiteboards, monitors and workspace to help you and your friends plan out the next big innovation. Second floor community space includes three lounges to play foosball, ping pong, cards or challenge your peers to epic video game competitions in our newly designed Video Game Lounge. Even the laundry facility is connected to the Internet so you can check to see if the machines are open or in use! And the Fitness Center has all the equipment you need to stay in top shape including a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, bench and free weights.
The Residence Life Community features shared living arrangements with double occupancy rooms. Some rooms have a private bathroom for you and your roommate and others have Jack-and-Jill bathrooms shared by only two rooms. No community bathrooms here!
The price per students is set at $8016 a year, and includes all utilities, internet and basic cable.
A deposit of $550 is required to reserve your space. $400 of the deposit is refundable if all move-out procedures are followed correctly and there are no damages. $150 is a non-refundable administrative fee.

All first-year undergraduate students are required to live in the Residence Life Community during their first year at University of Advancing Technology (UAT).
There are limited exceptions to this policy (for example, if you are married or are living with parents or guardians within a designated mileage from campus). A student who wishes to reside outside of the Residence Life Community must submit this application to the University and furnish appropriate documentation or other written information supportive of the request 30 days prior to the semester the student wishes to commence residing outside the Residence Life Community.
A student should inquire in advance about requesting permission from the University for independent housing in order to avoid inconvenience for the student and the University.
Prior to entering into any type of rental or lease agreement, a student should secure a written authorization for independent housing.
To live outside of the Residence Life Community, students must submit an Application for Independent Housing and furnish appropriate documentation - along with any other written information supportive of the request—30 days prior to the semester the student wishes to commence residing off campus. The General Manager of Founder's Hall shall approve or deny all applications in writing.
Please send an Application for Independent Housing to the following address:
University of Advancing Technology
ATTN: Office of Residence Life
2627 W. Baseline Rd.
Tempe, AZ 85283-1056
Any questions should be directed to the Office of Residence Life. It is the student's responsibility to follow up and maintain communication with the Office of Residence Life to ensure the application for Independent Housing was received and that determination of final decision was made.
The Office of Residence Life will make every effort to ensure all students receive assistance in finding housing.
The first day you can move in depends on which semester you intend to begin at UAT. Move-in dates generally occur at least one full week before classes begin.
Students are encouraged to walk, bike and utilize public transportation. A UAT Parking Permit must be displayed on any vehicle parked in the UAT campus lot. UAT Parking Permits become available for purchase the first week of each semester through the UAT Intranet for $75 per vehicle/per semester. Free parking may be available behind Fry’s Electronics Store. All parking, on campus and off, is at the vehicle owner’s risk.
No pets are allowed in the dorms including fish.
The Office of Residence Life bases early and mid-semester check-in to University-sponsored housing upon availability and approval. Residents who take an early or mid-semester check-in may not be able to live with preferred roommates due to availability. The pricing structure outlined under PAYMENT SCHEDULES above begins from the first day that Residence Life check-in is scheduled, and all housing costs are due prior to check-in. Any early check-ins must be approved by UAT and Residence Life, and, if available, are extremely limited.
UAT's Office of Residence Life manages University-sponsored housing. Resident Assistants (RAs) are available to assist students with their transition to university life, and also during their educational journey at UAT. RAs are current students who act as student advocates and mentors for the students living within the UAT community. They are an informative source for campus activities, academic matters, campus and community resources, and administrative procedures.
