Selden Hall is named after Armistead Selden, Jr., former U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, and Western Samoa. Selden served as a member of the Alabama House of Representatives from 1951 to 1952, when he was elected to the United States Congress. He served in Congress from 1953 to 1969. Selden Hall is a traditional residence hall with community bathrooms. It is used as an "overflow" residence hall, in case all of the other residence halls and apartments fill up. Students assigned to Selden Hall will be re-assigned to other residence halls as vacancies become available. Students assigned to Selden Hall will initially be charged at the Gilbert Hall rate. Selden residents will receive a probated rebate once they move to their permanent assignment, if the new building's rate is less than Gilbert Hall. If a Selden resident is required to remain at Selden Hall for the entire semester, the student will receive a rebate to reflect the actual cost of Selden Hall. Selden residents will not be permitted to remain in Selden Hall if vacancies are available in other residence halls on campus.
