Helping turn your hall into a home.
Your residence hall is more than just where you lay your head at night—it’s your year-round personal headquarters. Here are some of the amenities that you’ll find in Montevallo’s residence halls.
All residence halls have the following:
- Free laundry facilities
- Drink and snack vending machines
- Ice machines
- Air conditioning/heating
- TV lounges
All rooms have the following:
- In-room wireless internet access
- Cable TV connection
In 2016, the University of Montevallo migrated from an analog telephone system to a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system. Due to this change and the high percentage of cell phone owners, we no longer provide the ability to obtain telephone service in residence hall rooms. Each building has been furnished with a courtesy phone for making local or emergency calls. See the chart below for their locations.

SMARTPHONE TIP: If you do not receive a strong cellular signal in your room, try using Wi-Fi Calling. This is a feature on many newer-model phones that enables you to make and receive calls over a wireless network. Search for Wi-Fi Calling on your carrier’s website to see if your device supports this feature and how you can enable it.
By definition, the Internet is an open access environment. Residents at the University of Montevallo are provided internet access through wireless internet in all the residence halls.
All halls (except Peck) are equipped with electronic access on the exterior doors. Residents must use their UM ID Card to gain access to their building. Visitors can contact the person they are visiting on the “call phone” and must always be escorted.
