Universities are defined by their people, and you could say the people here were born to challenge "business as usual." The University of Arizona existed before Arizona was a state. Our first graduating class in 1895 consisted of two women and one male.

Since then, we've learned that we're better together. We do more when we work across backgrounds, skills and perspectives.


The University of Arizona offers a wide variety of academic programs, many of which are among the nation’s best. Students can choose from more than 300 undergraduate and graduate degrees through 20 colleges and 11 schools on three campuses.


As one of the top research universities in the world, with research activity of more than $600M, the University of Arizona is known for its excellence in research, giving our students the experience needed for their futures and being an economic engine for our state.

So far, being a student at the u of a has been an amazing experience. I really enjoyed all aspects of my freshman year, but this year has been more challenging due to all my classes being virtual.
