Due to robust housing application numbers for the 2023-2024 academic year, UA has contracted additional space with East Edge. This apartment complex is located near campus and students have private bedrooms and bathrooms. All apartments come fully furnished with kitchens and a washer and dryer. Crimson Ride buses stop at East Edge, and the location provides easy access to campus. Additionally, students are able to stay through break periods and the summer for no additional cost (Summer option only available to students who do not graduate in May). Students are responsible for providing their own linens, trash receptacles, cookware, eating utensils, and cleaning supplies. Students who live at East Edge through UA complete the UA housing application and contract, rather than a lease with the property.

East Edge Freshman Option

HRC will have some space available at East Edge for freshmen, but it will be in a large studio apartment shared by 2 students. So essentially it would still be a shared bedroom, but in a studio apartment.

  • Apartment type: large studio double, with two residents sharing the space.
  • Students would not have their own bedroom, but share the sleeping space (and kitchen and bathroom, etc.) with a roommate.
  • Cost: $4,700 per semester (per student)
  • Move-in: Aug 19 or later (Earlier move-in is NOT an option)

Any freshmen are who interested in this option should email housing@ua.edu for more information. This option is available ONLY for freshmen with completed housing applications.
