We all know that a college’s academic reputation is important, and in my opinion UAHuntsville’s is amazing! Another important aspect of a university is the living quarters. As a resident assistant here at UAHuntsville, I can tell you that the residence halls are one of a kind! All of our halls are suite style, so you get your very own room. You also have your own sink and only share a bathroom with one other person.


Along with the fabulous amenities¬†available¬†within the halls, there are always a lot of activities going on. Nearly every week, resident assistants (like me) host FREE programs for the residents- oftentimes providing a free meal! These programs make it easy to get involved in the residence hall and to get to know your neighbors. Another advantage to living on campus is simply the convenience. You are minutes away from any campus event. You’re even ¬†just a short walk away from any of the wonderful dining options such as Papa Johns, Chick-fil-a, and the Charger Cafe.


After commuting my first year and living on campus my second year, there really is no comparison. I would not trade my on campus living experience for anything. In order to get the most of your college experience, it is important to live on campus and experience all that UAHuntsville’s housing department has to offer.
