To begin with let us mention the campus library which has over 6 lakh books and Apple Macintosh workstations for the students. There are a number of campus book stores as well. There is also a Student Memorial Centre whose architecture is similar to that of the ship USS Arizona. The athletics facilities are also noteworthy here, since the university has regular participation in the Pacific-12 and NCAA conferences.
The dormitories and halls are numerous and can be passed as easily liveable as told to us by the various students. The problem with off-campus housing is the difficulty in finding them; however, if you are lucky enough to find one, the damages won’t be too much at all. Living expenses at Tucson would vary from $400 to $1000 per person per month depending on your number of roommates and luxury.
The faculty at University of Arizona is highly appreciated by the students. They are known to be highly knowledgeable and generate a lot of interest in the subject among the students. A special mention here for the faculty of the Eller School of Management which conducts the MIS course. Students are very happy with these professors who are friendly enough to help them out to even get internships.
