Welcome to The University of Alabama Housing and Residential Communities! Follow each step below to help guide you through the housing application process and learn about your housing options.
Opens: October 1, 9 a.m. CDT
Room selection participation deadline: February 1, 11:59 p.m. CST
Complete the housing application before the room selection participation deadline in order to participate in Room Selection. The earlier you apply, the earlier you select your room. Participating in room selection does not guarantee specific building or roommate choice.
Deadline: Vary by community
Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) provide students with unique living environments that engage them with students of similar goals and interests. Learn more about our LLCs and their individual application processes.
Deadline: April 1
We provide accommodating housing for students with medical disabilities. Review our medical request policies and learn how to apply for special housing accommodations.
Deadline: For Fall, we encourage students to form their roommate group, if they wish to form one, by April 30!
Find and confirm one roommate to live with on campus. More information about searching for a roommate through My College Roomie is available in late fall.
Residents planning to bring a vehicle to campus will need to purchase a parking pass, which they can obtain through the Transportation Services office.
Your housing assignment process depends on if you applied before or after the room selection participation deadline of February 1.
Applied for housing by February 1
Students who apply before the room selection participation deadline qualify for room selection. Information about room selection, including each student’s log in time, is sent to Crimson email accounts.
Applied for housing after February 1
HRC staff assign students that apply after the room selection participation deadline beginning in mid-May. Factors that affect when a student’s assignment is made include housing application date; gender; LLC participation, if any; and roommate. Assignments are made through late July. Please note, HRC makes every effort to assign students with a requested roommate, if space allows, but cannot guarantee this.
