An “intern” is a person who desires to reserve a space in UAH Housing who is not enrolled in classes 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.

Reserving a Room

Interns must complete an Intern Housing Application and submit $150 deposit to the Housing Office. You may pay the fee by check, cash or credit card. Contact the Housing Office (256) 824-6108 to pay with a credit card. Please note: there is a 2.75% service fee on all credit/debit card transactions.

Applications should be submitted to UAH Housing, 118 Charger Village, 601 John Wright Dr., Huntsville, AL 35899. There are a limited number of spaces for interns and assignments are made on a first come-first served basis. Once spaces are full, you will be notified and placed on a waiting list.

Housing Options/Assignments/Limitations

Availability

Summer Intern Housing 2018 is available as early as May 25 and ends August 4, 2018.

Location

Room assignments are based on availability. There may be certain instances when an intern will be asked to make a room change. University Housing will make every effort to avoid changes. If relocation becomes necessary, UAH will notify the resident as far in advance as possible.

Assignment

You will receive your assignment either by mail or email as soon as it is able to be processed. Assignments may be delayed if we are in “assignment periods” for UAH students. If you have a question about your assignment, please contact the Housing Office. 

Rent

Rent calculations are based on a weekly basis. The first day of the week begins on Saturday through Friday night. The current weekly rate for a private bedroom, two bathroom suite/apartment, with up to three roommates is $180.00 on campus and $215 for the off campus apartments. Rate includes a furnished bedroom and common area, utilities, cable, local telephone service, parking pass and Internet access. Room rates do not include bed linens, paper products, parking fines, etc.

Checking In to your Room

Interns check in at the front desk of the Residence Hall they are assigned. Interns living in off campus apartment will be notified of their check in location based on the apartment assignment. The assignment letter will provide the specific location for check in and the address.

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. The UAH Guide to Residence Living is posted at the Housing website and interns are responsible for the policies noted in the guide. 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.

UAH is a smoke, tobacco, and vapor free campus.
