Back to Bama

The recontracting application for the 2021-2022 academic year opened on October 15, 2020, at 9 a.m. CDT.  To access the application, login to the myHousing portal.

If you already applied for housing and decided to change your plans and live off-campus, you must cancel your housing application prior to May 1 to receive a full refund on your $115 prepayment, or a $50 partial refund by canceling by June 1. After June 1, you should still cancel your application to avoid assignment and housing charges on your bill.

Beginning fall 2021, all returning residents will participate in a residential meal plan. Residents will automatically be signed up for the Silver 125 and can upgrade if desired. Those in Bryce Lawn and Highlands can opt to reduce their plan to the Essential Plan. Visit Bama Dining for more information, including information on the exemption process.

Returner Room Selection

Returner room selection will take place from April 7-11, 2021, with initial log in times on April 7 and 8. In order to be eligible for room selection, a student must complete the online housing application by 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2021. Log in days and times are determined by the date the application is completed. Students with a complete housing application will receive an email with room selection information, including their log in date/time, in late February or early March. Students interested in forming a roommate group should complete their group (with a total of no more than 4 people) by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 5.

Space for returners/upperclassmen will be available in the following locations (subject to change, as needed):

  • Bryce Lawn
  • Highlands
  • Blount Hall, for Blount and Honors students
  • Parham, for male students
  • Burke East, Burke West, and Paty, for male and female students
  • John England Jr. Hall, for male and female students
  • 4-person suites in Riverside, Lakeside, Ridgecrest East, Presidential I and II
  • 4-person suites in Ridgecrest North/South and West, for Honors students
  • A limited number of 2-person suites in Lakeside, Riverside, and Ridgecrest North/South
  • A limited number of 1-person suites in Lakeside and Riverside

HRC reserves the right to consolidate returning students after room selection in order to open up entire rooms and suites for incoming freshmen. In order to avoid consolidation, returners should fill entire rooms/suites/apartments.

All residence halls remain open during Fall and Thanksgiving Breaks, but most close for Winter and Spring Break. If you anticipate needing campus housing during Winter or Spring Break, consider living in Bryce Lawn, the Highlands, Burke East or West, or Parham.

HRC will continue accepting applications until we fill all spots, which typically occurs in early summer, but may be earlier or later, depending on application numbers. Students who apply after Feb. 15 will be assigned by HRC staff. For more information, see our application page.
