Prepayment
All Residence Hall Contracts Must Be Accompanied By A $150.00 Housing Payment. An original Residence Hall contract and prepayment must be sent together to the University of South Alabama Housing & Residence Life.

Contractual Obligation of the Residence Hall Contract
All Residence Hall contracts that originate in the fall semester are two semester contracts (fall and spring semesters). If you sign a Residence Hall contract for fall semester and remain enrolled for the following spring semester, you are obligated to the Residence Hall contract, which includes responsibility for paying the room rent and meal plan for that spring semester. During the contract period, you may change housing areas or rooms after the second week of classes by completing the necessary paperwork in your community office.
