Summer On Campus 

Experience College - Live On Campus during the Summer

You don’t have to wait until freshman year to stay on campus and attend college classes. With Summer On Campus, you will live in a residence hall, walk the Quad, make great friends and take two college courses at UA.  And you’ll have the same strong support network you experience in your online courses – peer coaches who live in your residence hall, academic advisors, and student-centered instructors.

We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to learn about college life – like meeting with representatives from student organizations and campus areas. And we’ll also provide plenty of social opportunities like, stadium tours, movie and game nights, meals and events with UA organizations and speakers, and study groups at the library.
