An “intern” is a person who desires to reserve a space in UAH Housing who is not a student at UAH. This includes co-op students and visiting scholars. Each intern shall be required to fill out an application and pay a deposit fee prior to being assigned a room in housing.

Current UAH Students who will be interning over the summer will need to go through the Summer Housing process. If you have any questions, please reach out to the UAH Housing Office by email at

Reserving a Room

Interns must complete an Intern Housing Application and submit a $500 non-refundable deposit to the Housing Office to reserve a room. The deposit will be applied to the balance due for housing. You may pay the fee by check or credit card. Contact the Housing Office (256) 824-6108 to pay with a credit card. Please note: there is a 2.85% service fee on all credit/debit card transactions.

The Summer 2024 Intern Application is closed for Summer 2024. 

**Please note that we will require documentation of the internship to be uploaded when filling out the application. We prefer the documentation to be an offer letter from the company; however, any documentation of the internship will be sufficient.  

There are a limited number of spaces for interns and assignments are made on a first come-first served basis. Housing is not guaranteed and will be based upon availability. If you have any questions, please contact UAH Housing at or by phone at 256-824-6108.

Rules, Regulations and Policies

Like UAH students, Interns and guests are held accountable for UAH rules and regulations and are expected to be responsible community members. You are able to find all policies and procedures in the UAH Resident Handbook. Interns also sign a housing contract agreeing to abide by the rules and guidelines set by housing and the University. Failure to abide by UAH housing policies can result in being asked to leave University Housing.

Internet Access

UAH is part of the EDUroam network. If your home campus is part of this network and you have signed up to use EDUroam, your campus login credentials should connect you to the UAH EDUroam network.  If you do not have EDUroam, you will need to reach out to UAH Housing to receive a guest account and password. Gaming systems must be registered through the Office of Information and Technology.

Identification Cards

Interns are required to obtain a Guest ID card. ID cards are made in the Charger Union, Room 131. The ID card is your access to the residence hall and identifies you as a “resident.” Student ID’s are made Monday – Friday 8:15 to 5 pm. Interns are encouraged to send their photo in prior to check-in so that their Charger Card is available for pick up at housing check-in. If unable to do this, arrangements will need to be made to get the ID made. There is no charge for your ID.  There is a $25 fee for a replacement ID.

Flex Accounts: An ID card can also be used as a declining balance card. A Flex Account allows you to use the laundry facilities in your residence hall, make purchases at the UAH Bookstore, and any open dining location on campus. 

Laundry Facilities

Our laundry facilities are located on the first floor in Central Campus. The machines will take quarters and are set up to utilize a flex account on the ID cards for payment. A load of laundry to wash or dry, costs $1.50 each.


Zone parking has created adequate parking on campus at UAH. You are not required to purchase a parking decal unless you are enrolled in a class at UAH. The hang tag interns receive will be to the parking area designated for the residence hall you are assigned. Hang tags will be issued by the UAH Housing Office. You will receive an email asking to provide information to receive your hang tag closer to Intern move-in. 

There are bike racks at each residence hall. You are required to register your bike with Campus Police. Registration is free. Please bring your own lock to secure your bike outside in the bike rake. Bicycles are not allowed in the buildings.
