A Desert Retreat in Wildcat Country

Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. Nestled in the heart of campus, Graduate Tucson is close to everywhere Wildcats want to be, and just a short trip from downtown and historic Fourth Avenue.

Guest rooms celebrate the natural flora and fauna of the region with pops of color against neutral backdrops. Accents of natural materials such as leather, wood and textiles blend together to create a modern space that’s distinctly Southwest.

In the lobby, a vibrant desert sunset scene illuminates the front desk, while giant cacti and woven textiles make the bright, open interior about more than the natural sunlight. While you’re here, relax at the terrazo communal table and make yourself at home at Poindexter, our onsite café. Or head to the rooftop for a drink or a swim.

So whether you’re in town rallying for a Wildcats win, exploring campus or soaking up the Southwestern sun, we’re here to make your stay memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff are happy to provide you recommendations around Tucson so you’ll feel like a local even if it’s your first time in town.

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends (probably a little more than the next guy) and would never ask you leave them at home during your travels.  Add a pet to your booking for $25 per night.

Complimentary Bike Rentals

Explore Tucson on two wheels. Complimentary bike rentals are available through our Front Desk, based on availability.

Work up a sweat

Lace up your sneaks to get that heart rate up or pump iron anytime you please in our 24-hour fitness center. Located on the seventh floor, our gym is fully equipped with ellipticals, treadmills, Peloton bikes and free weights.
