Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?

You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.

What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Atmosphere has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rent?

Each resident at Atmosphere pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • Wi-Fi
  • Cable TV
  • Electricity ($25/person/month allowance)
  • Water/sewer
  • Trash removal
  • 24-hour on-site management
  • Community features – fitness center, pool, etc.

What size are the residences at Atmosphere?

The spacious accommodations at Atmosphere range from studio through 4-bedroom floorplans, with a private bathroom for every bedroom.

Are the residences furnished?

Yes, all apartments at Atmosphere have a furniture package that includes a full-size bed, dresser, desk and chair in each bedroom, a sofa, coffee table and entertainment stand in each living room. Plus, all residences include a full appliance package in the kitchen. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model residences.

When do the contracts start and end?

The standard term is August 15, 2018 to July 31, 2019, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Other alternate dates may be available; please inquire with our staff.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Atmosphere also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at Atmosphere?

Your living costs at Atmosphere can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at Atmosphere. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is Atmosphere open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at Atmosphere are students at the University of Arkansas. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Nonetheless, Atmosphere is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes applications from non-students. Family members are welcome as well, subject to occupancy limits. Because of the need to match student roommates, non-students must apply together with enough roommates to fill the desired residence.

What kind of safety and security are provided?

Atmosphere has a monitored fire sprinkler system, secure building entry apartment door locks and individually locking bedroom doors. Community courtesy patrols are provided at select times. Management staff are also on-site 24×7 and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?

Atmosphere is a no-pets community. The community is smoke-free in all indoor areas. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.

Can I park my vehicle at Atmosphere?

Atmosphere offers covered parking in our attached parking garage for a small additional charge. Limited guest parking is also available.

What other transportation options will I have?

Atmosphere is a short walk to UArk campus and to shopping, dining and entertainment. Two Razorback Transit shuttle bus routes also stop just a half-block away.

Can I see a model apartment?

Yes. Please request an appointment for a personal tour, or just stop by to see us and we’ll be happy to show you the community.
