All incoming freshmen are required to participate in the Freshmen Residency Program, unless they meet at least one criterion for exemption.

Current Residents

Information about the availability of on campus housing for current residents for the 2017-2018 Academic Year will be emailed to students via their Crimson email accounts. Housing is not guaranteed for students who are not incoming freshmen or do not have a housing scholarship which must be used on campus.

Students are encouraged to explore their off-campus housing options even if they plan to reapply for campus housing. The off-campus website,, is a great resource to begin the search.

Once the summer application is available, to apply for summer housing, please click on the Apply for Housing link above, log in using your myBama credentials, and select the 2017 Summer term. Students who will move to campus for Summer and will live on campus for the following Fall and Spring semesters must apply for Summer and the following Academic Year separately.
