Residential Housing and Dining

Residence Life Program

Located in Haas Commons (Building 73), the Department of Housing and Residence Life provides on-campus housing for students. Embry-Riddle believes that the on-campus living experience is an integral and positive part of a well-rounded University education. Interaction with other students in the campus community living environment is a major contributor to student success. National research shows that students who live on campus earn better grades, tend to be more involved in campus activities, and are more likely to graduate than students who live off campus. The on-campus housing system offers programs and services that support the academic mission of the University and promote student success. All residence halls are staffed by specially trained personnel who are committed to helping students and promoting a positive community environment.

Residential Facilities

Residence halls on the Prescott Campus are furnished and air-conditioned. Housing fees include all utilities, Internet (plug-in and wireless), and cable TV access. Although computer labs are conveniently located in academic buildings, students should provide their own personal computers for use in residential housing.

All residence halls have vending facilities and easy access to laundry facilities and campus dining areas. First-year students are assigned to areas specifically for first-year students.

Upper-division students can live in a variety of campus residences, including suites and apartments, on a space-available basis.

Accommodations for disabled students are available. Requests for these spaces should be made to the Disability Support Services located in Building 43 or (928) 777-6750.

Housing Application Policies

Housing information is sent to students who have been accepted to the University. All housing applications and deposits are made online in ERNIE under Departments → Prescott Campus → Housing. Contracts must be submitted online to the Department of Housing and Residence Life, with a $300 deposit. New students required to live on-campus must apply no later than June 1 (December 1 for spring semester) for a guaranteed space in Embry-Riddle managed housing, not necessarily a specific location or room type. Students who are not required to reside on campus will be housed on a first come, first serve basis, space permitting. Temporary assignments may be created in order to fulfill the all requests for housing.

Students who wish to break their Housing contract must submit the request via ERNIE under Departments → Prescott Campus → Housing. Please refer to the housing contract for terms and conditions.

New Students

All first-year students under the age of 21 without permanent residency in Yavapai County, and with less than 28 earned credit hours, are required to live in University-managed housing for their first full academic year to include fall and spring. Any student required to reside in University-managed housing is required to have a seven-day access or five-day access meal plan.

Dining facilities are conveniently located across the campus and offer a wide range of food selections.  Students can also enjoy weekly specials and events such as cookouts, buffets, and celebrations. Dining service hours are designed to meet the needs of students throughout the day. Accommodations can be made for students with special dietary needs or medical conditions. Our culinary staff is glad to consult with students on an individual basis.
