Conference Housing Amenities
Although the home base for Conference Housing operations may be housed in a building other than the building in which your conference group is assigned, a Conference Assistant will be on call and available to each group 24 hours a day throughout your stay. They also have access to other on-call professional housing staff. Conference Housing staff members are trained to focus on each group’s needs from customer service to facility safety.
Every residence hall room has a wired Ethernet port. Conference guests may use the open wall port in their room for their wired devices. Network cables can be obtained from the Conference Housing Office or by calling the USA Computer Services Center at (251) 460-6161. You will have the opportunity to establish a wireless network in your room by purchasing/providing the wireless router of your choice. See our Internet Services page for recommended products and specifications. Unlimited access to the wired network connection and broadband internet is included in your nightly rate.
Linen sets are available to conference groups, provided the group requests the packets at the time of reservation and the entire group utilizes linens on all days. Each linen set includes 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, 2 towels, and 1 wash cloth. Note: Pillow, pillow case, and blanket not provided. For those that reserve this service, linen packets will be in place in the rooms prior to arrival and will be picked up after the group’s departure. Visit our Conference Housing Rates page for pricing.
All of our rooms include unlimited laundry access at no additional charge. Find additional information about our laundry facilities, including their locations, by visiting the Laundry Services page.
All of our rooms include access to USA's all-digital cable system at no additional charge. Should the group or its guests choose to bring a TV to connect to this service, be sure your TV has a QAM tuner (coaxial cable not provided). TVs without the QAM tuner will be unable to connect to the digital service. Find additional information about our cable services, including a complete channel line-up by visiting the Cable Services page.
All guests must obtain a valid USA permit to park on campus. Most conference housing accommodations provide adequate parking around the facilities for guests visiting South Alabama’s campus. Reservations for parking must be made in advance by emailing Conference Housing the needed number of passes.
Common Areas and Storage Rooms
Groups have the option to request the use of a lockable room for storage or meeting purposes. Conference Housing will make all efforts to place this room in the same building your group is staying. TV Rooms are available for reservation in some buildings, while in other buildings groups may choose to reserve a double or triple occupancy room to meet their needs. Please note that your request for a storage room or meeting area must be received three weeks prior to your arrival for full consideration. For each room used for these purposes, a group will be assessed on per room per night basis. Groups should indicate request for such space on their Conference Housing Reservation Request Form.
