Housing and Residential Communities will offer prorated refunds to any on-campus residence hall resident (except those with approved exceptions to remain on campus). Because residents pay varying rates for housing based upon residence hall and room type, each applicable student will be contacted directly no later than April 15 with more information about their specific refund. Students with a refund will be able to choose from these options:

  • Receive a prorated refund. See ua.edu/refunds for information about how refunds are issued; OR
  • Apply your refund to your Fall 2020 student bill; students who elect this option will receive an additional credit of 10% of the refund amount.  For example, under this option with a $500 refund, an additional 10% or $50 for a total of $550 would be applied to your Fall 2020 student bill; OR
  • Donate your refund to the Tide Together Student Support Fund.

Refunds will be applied to outstanding accounts with balances before distribution of any remaining refund balance.  Students with UA scholarships that paid for housing are not eligible for refunds.

More detailed information specific to each student will be provided no later than April 15. Other updates will be posted at healthinfo.ua.edu and housing.ua.edu as they become available.
