Living on campus is the key to a great start at The University of Alabama. Residential living puts you at the heart of campus life, where you’ll interact with a diverse community of people and benefit from a support structure of resident advisors and other housing staff who will assist you in your transition to UA.
Once on campus, Housing & Residential Communities (HRC) has six full-time area coordinators, about 20 community directors, and 270+ resident advisors and freshman advisors living on campus as well, prepared to support each student. Our office has multiple staff members on call 24/7, 365 days a year. Students can reach an on-call staff member after office hours and on weekends via their community desk or UAPD dispatcher. Additionally, the Community-Oriented Police (COP) program brings UAPD officers into residence halls to develop relationships with students and maintain a presence during the evening and night hours.
Here at The University of Alabama, we believe that students should have every possible opportunity to succeed, and we are also excited to offer students further development opportunities through our many diverse Living-Learning Communities. These programs allow students to have access to educational programs and extracurricular activities exclusive to each Living-Learning Community. Each community is unique, with specific requirements and living arrangements.
In addition to having the option of living in a Living-Learning Community, students at The University of Alabama also have the option of living in a Themed Housing group. Themed Housing groups are organized either around students’ shared academic or social interests. Students within Themed Housing groups have the opportunity to build strong academic and social support systems with their fellow residents with whom they share a common interest. Each Themed Housing group is supported by either an academic unit or a Student Life office.
HRC supports each student from the time you arrive during Move-in (a very hands-on attention-to-detail move-in experience), through the many opportunities to meet your fellow residents through a wide range of program opportunities, and through the time to transition to off-campus living with support and information provided by our Off-Campus Resources staff.
