Room rates include campus mail box, digital cable, Ethernet & wireless internet access, all utilities (electricity, water/sewer, heat/air, garbage service, and pest control) housing and facilities staff available 24/7, accommodation furnishings, and unlimited laundry access. All residence hall rooms are furnished with a bed frame (adjustable height), mattress, desk, chair, and closet or wardrobe per student. Additionally, each room comes with its own fridge or mini-fridge (size depends on the room type). Visit our Room Furniture page for more detailed furnishings information.

All students living in University housing are required to have a meal plan.

Living where you learn means that eventually, you'll need to eat. With the dining experience at South you'll never have to worry! Click here for USA Dining Locations Map for a map of all campus dining locations.

THE MEALS
The meals portion of each meal plan is available at the Fresh Food Company, South's all-you-care-to-eat dining location. The Fresh Food Company is located on the 2nd floor of the Dining Hall adjacent to the residential communities.

THE BUCKS
Bonus Bucks and Dining Dollars supplement your meal plan and are accepted as payment at all South Alabama Dining Locations. Unused Bonus Bucks roll from fall to spring but expire at the end of the school year. Dining Dollars work just like Bonus Bucks but are added separately and never expire.

HOW IT WORKS
Once you have a meal plan, your Student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the amount is deducted each time there is a food service transaction.

Freshmen (residents with 29 credit hours or less) may select any of the Jag Pass residential meal plans. Sophomores (residents with credit hours between 30-59) may select any of the Jag Pass residential meal plans OR the 10 meals per week w/$500 Bonus Bucks. Juniors, Seniors, and Graduates (residents with 60 credit hours or more) may select any of the residential meal plans listed below. Credit hours must be accepted and approved by the Office of the Registrar.

Each summer, a select few residence halls are designated for summer school student housing. This allows summer students the opportunity to have a better residential community experience; at the same time, it allows our Housing Facilities team to go through each hall over the summer and perform any necessary repairs, renovations, or upgrades.
