For our incoming students, The Office of Residential Life has compiled a list of items included in our dorm rooms, items that you should bring, and items that are prohibited in our Residence Halls.
Don’t panic if you forget something, there are many stores in Philadelphia and it is easy to get whatever basics you might need. Additionally, you and your roommates may want to plan for additional items once you have moved in.
Included in Your Room
What to Bring
You will only need limited kitchen items.
WHAT NOT TO BRING
There are also certain items that are prohibited in the residence halls. Please leave these at home as their possession violates university policy and certain local fire codes.
We are pleased to announce that in addition to weekday portfolio reviews, department faculty members and admission counselors will be on campus from 9 am – 12 pm on the following Saturdays to review portfolios:
January 26 | February 16 | March 2 | March 23 | April 20
Then: Schedule your review by contacting the Office of Admission at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215‑717‑6049.
Saturday portfolio reviews require a previously submitted application. If you’d like a preliminary review, schedule an appointment between 10 am – 3 pm on a Monday or Friday.
On-the-spot acceptance may be offered to applicants who show an acceptable portfolio, provided all application materials have been received at least two weeks prior to review, and who meet all UArts’ admission criteria.
Please note there are no tours of the campus available on Saturdays. If you would like a tour, please call the Office of Admission to schedule during the week.
The FAFSA is not required for the application, so you will receive a decision without having submitted the FAFSA.
We encourage every applicant’s family to complete the FAFSA, as there may be loans or grants available that they qualify for. In addition, the FAFSA determines eligibility for the Federal Work Study program, and having Federal Work Study makes finding a job on campus easier. The University of the Arts’ postmark deadline for submission of the FAFSA is March 1, but the earlier the better. Incoming students are considered on a rolling, funds-available basis after the March 1 deadline. The UArts Title IV Code is 003350.
