Experience College – Live on Campus during the Summer

You don’t have to wait until Fall of your freshman year to stay on campus and attend college classes. With Summer On Campus, you will live in a residence hall, walk the Quad, make great friends and take two college courses on-campus at UA per term.  And you’ll have the same strong support network you experience in your online courses – Peer Coaches who live in your residence hall, an overnight staff member, our student success coordinator, summer programs coordinator, academic advisors, and student-centered instructors.

We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to learn about college life – like meeting with representatives from student organizations and campus areas. And we’ll also provide plenty of social opportunities like movie and game nights, meals and events with UA organizations and speakers, and study groups at the library.

See our Summer On Campus Cost Breakdown for more information about housing, courses, and the overall cost.

*Incoming freshmen have an additional option – contact Mrs. Hoggle, Summer Programs Coordinator, at ec@ua.edu
