Residence Halls

AU offers six residence halls on campus that provide a comfortable and supportive home to more than 700 students. Each residence hall is unique and provides students with endless opportunities for involvement.

Most residences are co-ed, with male and female students housed on separate floors. Bathroom facilities are designated for each gender.

All residence halls have around-the-clock security. Both Residence Life staff and Campus Public Safety officers make rounds daily and a staff member is always on call.  Front entrances are locked 24 hours a day and are equipped with a card access system; instead of an exterior door key, residents use their student IDs to gain access to the residence hall.

Residents’ rooms are fully furnished and feature cable, high-speed Internet and a phone line for each resident. Furniture provided for each resident includes a bed (80–inch length), desk, chair, dresser and closet/wardrobe.
