Because your student’s happiness and safety are essential, we offer housing that’s just for them.
We both want the same result: for your student to be safe, happy, and enjoy the best college experience. To that end, we’ve addressed all the big details, so the little ones seem to take care of themselves. We offer individual contracts, roommate-matching services, and on-site amenities, all in a community that’s walking distance from the University of Alabama campus. Therefore, the only thing you have to worry about as a parent is when to schedule the moving day.
As you explore housing options for your student, one thing you may notice is that not all student housing near University of Alabama is the same. At State Tuscaloosa, we go a step past dorms and standard apartments. What we offer is an all-inclusive environment with features to promote a balanced college experience. Whether your student prefers a one or four-bedroom unit, he or she has a private bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet. Common areas are bright and open for roommates to share. While our amenities are centrally located so everyone can access them easily.
Rest assured, we have your student’s back 24/7. Our professional management and maintenance team works on-site during regular business hours to answer questions, address concerns, and respond to requests. We also have staff on call when the office is closed — your student wouldn’t be the first one to misplace a room key after a late-night at the library. We also offer an online resident portal so tenants can contact us at any time, even to plan a maintenance request.
Our individual housing contracts, where students rent by-the-bed, solve a common problem that occurs at UA off campus apartments: when roommates sign one contract, and one person moves out, the others (and, usually, their parents) are on-the-hook to make up the cost difference. But students who rent by-the-bed are only responsible for the amount they owe personally. For parents, this sensible, streamlined policy is added financial reassurance.
When your student has a positive relationship with his or her roommates, your life as a parent gets easier. To help students find others with similar interests, we offer roommate-matching services. Just by filling out a form that describes personal habits and lifestyle preferences, your student can help us pick out like-minded individuals who will be suitable roommates.
We offer both furnished and unfurnished units to accommodate every situation. Our unfurnished units are equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including in-unit washers and dryers and a full setup of kitchen appliances. But the bulk of the layout is open and ready to be decorated as your student sees fit. For those who don’t own furniture, we offer furniture packages with bedding, couches, tables, and other essentials that make the unit entirely move-in ready.
In less than 10 minutes, your student could walk from his or her apartment to the UA main campus. Even closer is Bryant-Denny Stadium, home of Crimson Tide football. And closer, still, are the Parkview Plaza Shopping Center and several budget-friendly eateries. State Tuscaloosa features bike racks and free parking for residents to make commuting a breeze.
