Visit the University of Arizona
The UA’s main campus covers 380 acres in central Tucson. It is a hub of community activity – concerts, plays, lectures, museums, poetry readings, athletic events and more.
While over half a million people now reside in Tucson, bringing businesses, attractions, and tourism, it also still has a familiar sense of local community. The University of Arizona is the second largest employer in Tucson and is located in the heart of the city. Learn more about Tucson and the Sonoran Desert.
