Housing and Residence Life
Auburn University offers on-campus housing accommodations for undergraduate students in four residential communities consisting of a total of 31 residence halls. The University does not offer on-campus housing accommodations for graduate students. All residence halls are air-conditioned and are equipped with wireless Internet service. The halls are convenient to academic buildings, dining venues, recreational areas, laundry facilities, mailrooms and the library.
Residence halls in the Hill and Quad communities are suite style: two students share a room that is connected by a bathroom to another room shared by two students. There are a limited number of single rooms available. The Village Community residence halls are primarily configured in four bedroom, two bath units: four students each have their own bedroom and share two bathrooms and a common area containing a kitchenette. There are a limited number of three bedroom and two bedroom, one bath units as well. The newest residential area (opened in August 2013) is South Donahue Hall which features two single bedroom, two bath units that share a common area and kitchenette. South Donahue has a very limited number of four single bedroom, two bath units. For more details, including rental rates, please visit the Housing website at www.auburn.edu/housing.
Housing for students with disabilities is available in all residential areas. Four residence halls in the Quad, one in the Village, and two on the Hill house Honors students. Students who are or will be members of the Honors College must specifically request an Honors hall on their housing application if they wish to be considered for assignment to one of these halls. Students can also participate in a Learning Community related to their major or to a particular theme. Information about Learning Communities can be found on the Housing website.
Admission to Auburn University does not automatically include a room reservation, and first-year students are not guaranteed housing. Students may apply for University Housing after they are accepted to the University and have submitted the $200 confirmation deposit to Admissions. Priority for housing requests is generally based upon the date the application is received. A $50 non-refundable application fee and a $250 refundable pre-payment are required with the housing application.

Each residence hall is staffed by undergraduate and graduate student staff members and professional staff members who oversee the daily operations of the residence hall and foster communities that are engaging, supportive and inclusive. Undergraduate Resident Assistants (RAs) provide social and educational programs for residents that are designed to engage students, advance learning, encourage leadership, and prepare students for future success. In addition, residents may participate in social programs provided by residence hall councils and Auburn’s Residence Hall Association. Residence Life staff also ensure resident compliance with Auburn’s housing and safety regulations and Community Standards. All hall staff members are trained and supervised by full-time Residence Life professional staff members.
Auburn University has partnered with Off Campus Partners to provide off-campus housing resources.

Users can also use the off-campus housing site to find a roommate, ride share or buy and sell furniture and textbooks.
