Maybe you want to live somewhere convenient to class and to food. Maybe you want a quick hike from your room to your friend’s room to the Campus Rec Center. Maybe you anticipate a pajama-clad stumble from your room to Starbucks first thing in the morning. UAB’s on-campus residence halls may be right up your alley.
|Dormitories? Hardly. UAB students get suites and apartments, not cramped rooms and communal bathrooms. And they get a sense of community with students who share their interests and experiences—and students who have different interests and experiences to share.|
For sophomores and above, Denman has one-bedroom apartments for two residents. It's a place where you can retreat to sleep or study—at whatever strange hour of the day you choose to do so.
For sophomores and higher, Rast is a place to call home with three other residents per apartment. And not that our rooms are chopped educational liver, but the atrium study room in particular is a pleasant and inviting place to get some studying done.
For sophomores and higher, Blount features two- and four-bedroom apartments. It’s also the only residence hall with a dishwasher in each apartment, so for those of you that don’t like hand washing your dishes, we’ve got something for you!
|MyHousing lets you take care of your housing application, housing deposit, room assignment, roommate selection, and housing contracts and updates online—it’s quick, convenient, and always on|
MyHousing is your way to take care of your room arrangements—application, deposit, contract, room assignment, roommate selection, and more—online. Take control of your living arrangements, and do it when it works for you.
|To get the most out of your residence hall experience, familiarize yourself with the features and advantages that make UAB’s campus a great place to live.|
If you have a question or problem, there’s always someone to turn to just down the hall.
Advantages to Living on Campus
It’s not about the room—it’s about what’s going on around the room, and what that means for you. (The rooms are nice, though.)
Residence Hall Features
It’s the little luxuries and fun amenities that make on-campus housing a home.
|Are you eligible for on-campus housing? Probably. We sure hope so, anyway. Look at our eligibility standards to make sure you qualify.|
Detailed eligibility requirements.
|While you’re living under our roof, you’re living by our rules. (But they’re good rules—you’re adults, and we recognize that.) A few basic policies make life better for you and everyone else in your residence hall.|
You gotta eat, right? (Hint: Yes, you do have to eat.) We offer seven meal plans—pick one that will satisfy your appetite and your budget.
Let’s keep everyone safe (and happy). Our rules for guests and visitors help us keep the residence halls secure and respectful. Still fun, of course. But also secure and respectful.
