Student Affairs administers a diverse range of programs and services designed to foster the success and well-being of all students at the University of the Arts. Our New Student Orientation, First-Year Experience, UArts Weekend and Commencement programs celebrate and guide students through important transitions in their UArts experience.
We encourage students to become active participants and leaders in our campus community through residence hall programs, Emerging Leaders, student clubs and organizations. Comprehensive career and internship counseling is available for all stages of the student's professional development and to all alumni.
Our team is dedicated to ensuring the health and well-being of all students through free and confidential health and counseling services, as well as implementation of the Student Code of Conduct. We provide academic support to help students succeed academically and creatively. Specific programs assist first-year students with their adjustment to college and students on academic probation. Our office works closely with students facing acute difficulties and those exploring taking a leave from the University.
We are committed to helping students at UArts be successful.
