Navigating all there is to offer on campus isn't always easy, so here is a list of the resources frequently used by off-campus students.
Full Circle Pantry
Full Circle Campus Food Pantry was established by the Volunteer Action Center in February 2011 as a student-run emergency food assistance program that distributes food and personal products to all members of the University of Arkansas community. Food can be applied for here.
Jean Tyson Child Development Student Center
A family-centered program housed in a facility designed to provide for best practices in early childhood education and to enhance the learning experience for university students. The JTCDSC provides individualized care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
This list of campus locations have been officially identified and are available for use by breastfeeding mothers.
On-campus parking is regulated by Transit & Parking. All lots require a parking permit or meter payment from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., with some lots restricted later or 24/7 . Off-campus students can purchase green student decals, remote decals, or a decal for one of the three parking decks. Permit rates and maps can be found here.
You don't have to walk alone! University of Arkansas Police Department provides escorts to and from anywhere on campus, Sunday through Thursday, 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Escorts are provided at other times by UAPD officers as shift activity allows. OCC highly recommends this for our students taking classes on campus at night. Call 479-575-5000 for a ride. This number is also on the back of your UARK ID card.
Free bus service is provided by Razorback Transit (575-RIDE or 575-7433). White-and-red Razorback Transit buses have wheelchair lifts and are air-conditioned. Full transit services are provided from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters. The routes go across campus, throughout the city of Fayetteville, and extend six miles north of campus to the Northwest Arkansas Mall. Bus service is reduced during summer sessions. Buses can be tracked in real time on the UARK Mobile App or on the campus map. Consult the Transit website for more schedule information.
Razorbikes is a program that is jointly sponsored by Transit and Parking and the Associated Student Government. It is designed to make community bicycles available to student, alumni, faculty and staff. Eligible persons can visit the Parking Office (either in the Administrative Services Building or at the Harmon Avenue Garage) to be registered as a user of the program. Once they sign up, they will be given a pass-code, which will unlock any Razorbike on campus for their use. Each bike will be used as transportation on or around campus for short trips and made available for the next user. Our intention is to make available as many bicycles as we can for as many users as possible.
Razorbuck$ is an account attached to your ID card. You can add as little as $5 and use it at 200 locations including 10 locations off campus. It rolls over from one semester to the next. You can add money at any time at their website with Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. At the Campus Card Office in the Arkansas Union Room 427, you can add Razorbuck$ with cash or check. Razorbuck$ is taken in over 90 vending locations, 20 copiers, PrintSmart, Student Accounts, the Bookstore, the Parking Office, Union Hair Care, Pat Walker Health Center, HPER Building, all dining locations and convenient stores across campus. On campus, simply tell the cashier you want to pay with Razorbuck$.
Safe Ride provides students with a safe means of transportation from any uncomfortable or inconvenient situation. During operating hours, Safe Ride can pick you up at any location within the Fayetteville city limits and transport you to your residence as indicated on UAConnect. Safe Ride runs on-campus service only Monday and Tuesday from 10:30 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. and service to anywhere in Fayetteville Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 p.m. - 3:00 a.m. Call 575-SAFE (7233) for a pick up.
Union Locker Rentals
Lockers are available to rent for $10 a semester in the Arkansas Union to relieve you from hauling your books all over campus every day. These lockers are located on the second floor and can be rented by visiting Arkansas Union 634. Daily and weekly rentals are also available.
