The University of Montevallo houses students in eight distinctive residence halls. The wide variety offered to residents ranges from traditional style halls with community baths, to halls offering rooms with private baths, to a hall with efficiency apartments. The residence halls provide a comfortable living environment conveniently located adjacent to classrooms, the library, food services, recreational facilities, and administrative offices.
UM’s eight residence halls offer students an opportunity to share a spirit of community designed to enrich many aspects of the collegiate experience. The dividends of residence life at UM are many. For example, being a part of a community of scholars is exciting, and living with others who share your interests and experiences is fun. Research shows that living on campus during the freshman year is a very positive factor in a student’s success, and at Montevallo, helping students achieve their collegiate goals is a priority.
