Renting in Fayetville
You won’t need any luck trying to find an apartment in Fayetteville. There are hundreds of places available to students; though most are apartment buildings, there are single-family houses here and there. You won’t have to look far to find your ideal college apartment. While freshmen are required to live on campus, 70% of all U of A students live off campus and for good reason, too. There’s a wealth of listings to choose from that are within a reasonable distance to campus, the town is safe enough for the late-night crawlers. Your feet and your bike will be enough to maneuver the streets all four years. A car may be a hassle, as parking is usually harder to find around densely-populated areas in Fayetteville.
If you are attending U of A, I hope you like the outdoors. The campus is just a short drive away from natural beauties such as the Ozark National Forest. The nearby Buffalo National River and Kings River are great places to go floating, and Beaver Lake is the place to be if you like fishing. For a relatively small town, Fayetteville has a diverse and lively atmosphere. At night, students flock to Dickens Street for bars, restaurants, and all that jazz, all within walking distance from campus. At U of A, you won’t have to travel far to live a little.
