Community & Relocation Resources

The University of Arizona contracts with Above & Beyond Relocation Services to provide free relocation support services, such as real estate assistance and community orientations. New employees may also use these services.

Employees relocating to Arizona may receive a departmental moving allowance and may choose among seven national moving companies that have established competitive pricing agreements with the University of Arizona. Several benefits are also offered at no additional cost: free valuation (insurance); waiver of peak transportation rates (during the summer months & holidays); and discounted rates for international moves. For more information and bidding requirements see the Moving Information Sheet for New Hires.
