• Residence Life


    Living on campus is a major part of the total college experience. The residence halls at the University of West Alabama provide a convenient location to your classes and the many campus services available to you. Many on-campus residents form friendships that last a lifetime. We hope that you will let us be "your home away from home".

    UPDATED POLICY FOR 2015 - 2016
    Overnight Guest Policy: 
    A resident may have a person 
    of the same sex stay as an overnight guest in his/her 
    residence hall room if approved by the resident’s 
    roommate and the RLC/HD. To request approval for an 
    overnight guest, after speaking with your roommate 
    and getting approval from him/her, complete the 
    online form 
     at least 24 hours 
    prior to the visit (or by Thursday at 5 PM if visiting 
    over the weekend). If the guest is to stay beyond two 
    consecutive nights or more than four total nights 
    during a semester, the form must be completed at least 
    72 hours in advance and approved by the Director of 
    Campus Life and Housing. It is the responsibility of the 
    resident to make the guest aware of all residence hall 
    policies and rules. The hosting resident is responsible 
    for the guest’s behavior during a visit. 
    Due to security concerns, overnight visitation will not 
    be permitted or approved during the following times:

    1. Pre-Season Housing
    2. Before the 2nd week of classes each semester
    3. Final Exams
    4. University Breaks
    In addition, overnight visits are not permitted by guests 
    younger than 17 years of age.
