THE SPECTRUM IS A LIVING-LEARNING ENVIRONMENT! We want your college student to be successful throughout their career at University of Arkansas. They need a good foundation and support to gain this success. At The Spectrum, we want to help support their productivity by giving them a fully equipped computer lab at their fingertips. We want to keep them healthy with an on- site 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center. We also want to help them relax and meet their neighbors by providing them with luxury lounge areas located around the property.We enjoy being a part of the memories your student makes while attending UArk. Our staff hosts weekly events to keep the community social and residents involved with the others. The Spectrum meets every need that your student will have while in college so they can achieve what they came here for in an enjoyable atmosphere.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of The Spectrum for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why The Spectrum is your student’s best housing option!
On-site Professional Staff
Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. The Spectrum offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.
Affordable Floor Plans
The Spectrum has six spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have one-bedroom: one-bathroom, two-bedroom: two-bathroom, and three-bedroom: two-bathroom apartment homes. Your student’s rent includes all utilities (water, sewer, trash, and electricity with cap amount), extended basic cable, furniture, access to The Spectrum amenities, and so much more!
The Spectrum offers fully-furnished and unfurnished apartments, saving you money!
If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!
Resident Events to Keep Students Involved
While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At The Spectrum, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved, such as pizza parties and karaoke nights! Annually, The Spectrum will have events such as a Welcome Back Party at the beginning of the fall semester, a Casino Night at the beginning of the spring semester, and a large competition among the residents and staff, as well as, many holiday events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at the University of Arkansas, as well as, events happening around town so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing The Spectrum as a Living-Learning environment!
