Theme Communities

Central Campus (CCH) and Frank Franz (FFH) are home to theme communities, where first-year students can live with peers who share their major or academic interests and take part in special programming related to those interests. The following theme communities are available:


Engineering (CCH): This community is geared towards housing students together that are interested in engineering.


Leadership (CCH): This community promotes leadership opportunities for first-year students of all majors through peer mentoring, academic support programs and career counseling.


Honors (FFH): This community is the oldest theme community at UAH. First-year residents in this community will enjoy specialized classes, connect with upperclassmen mentors, and form study groups with peers who share their academic interests and goals.

Health Professions (CCH): This community supports all residents interested in a career in a healthcare-related profession and provides opportunities to engage with health professionals in their field.


Health and Wellness (CCH): This is UAH's newest theme community and supports residents interested in learning how to maintain a healthy living style. This community is paired with the Health and Physical Education Department.


General Interest (CCH and NCH): This community is for first-year students who want to experience everything UAH has to offer. Residents' interests will determine the overall direction of programming.
