Incoming Residents

The 2020-2021 housing application for incoming freshman opens October 1, 2019, at 9 a.m. CDT. In order to apply for housing as a new incoming freshman, students must be admitted to the University and paid the freshman enrollment deposit. To apply for housing for the 2020-2021 academic year, click on the “Apply for Housing” link below, log in using your myBama credentials, and select “Academic Year 2020-2021.” For more information about the housing application, review our Application Guide.

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

Because of the demand for housing, current UA students and transfer students cannot apply for housing at this time. If you wish, you may place yourself on the waitlist, and we will contact you if you are able to apply later in the summer. The waitlist is available in the myHousing portal.

If you decide not to attend UA, cancel your housing application prior to June 1 to receive a $165 full refund on your prepayment, or a $100 partial refund by canceling by June 15.

In order to apply for housing, you will need your myBama username and password.
