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 will interact with a diverse community of people.

With up to 8,600 residents on campus in 33 residence halls, we are dedicated to propelling residents to a successful transition to life on campus with the aid of our 236 resident advisors as well as our 19 graduate community directors.

It is our mission to support students’ development, learning, and engagement through intentionally designed environments, programs, and services.
