Off-Campus Resources

HRC supports students as they transition to off-campus living through HRC’s Off-Campus Resources office, which oversees an off-campus housing website, housing fairs, and programming in the residence halls about leases, landlords, and successful community living.

Break Shuttle

Inexpensive shuttle services are available to and from the Birmingham Airport for academic breaks (fall break, Thanksgiving break, winter break, spring break, end of academic year).


Getting around town and campus is important. Knowing where you can park on campus, the Crimson Ride Schedule, and how to get to the airport and around town can make your time at UA much simpler!

Getting Mail

For the safety and security of HRC residents, mail and packages are not delivered directly to the residence halls. All deliveries are made to the Ferguson Mail Center.

Student Safety

The safety and security of residents involves a partnership between the students and the University.

Summer Camps and Conferences

Housing and Residential Communities provides group accommodations for conferences and youth camps.

Parent Info

The University of Alabama understands that sending your student to college for the first time can be full of excitement and anxiety. UA Housing and Residential Communities views parents and family members as partners in the support of student success, both in the classroom and in our residence halls.
