Residence Hall Application Fee and Apartment Deposit

Residence Hall

Residence hall applications will be processed online upon receipt of an application and $150 nonrefundable application fee which must be a debit or credit card authorization. The residence hall application fee is considered a continuing fee for subsequent assignments as long as the student remains in campus residence halls and applies during the posted reclaim process. Failure to reapply during the reclaim process in the spring voids the continuing fee and the student must re-pay the application fee. Admission to the University of North Alabama is required before any assignment is made.


An application for an apartment rental must be accompanied by a deposit. The apartment deposit is $200.00 for all units per single adult tenant or married couple. Only two adult tenants are allowed per apartment. The deposit is refundable with written notice requesting to be removed from the waiting list. Upon occupancy, the deposit becomes an apartment security deposit retained by the University as a credit against any charges for property damage or loss or for cleaning if the apartment is not left in good order. Damages, losses, or cleaning costs in excess of deposits are added to the student account and must be paid immediately before a student can register or receive any services from the University. If the tenant does not properly check out with the Housing and Residence Life staff, the deposit is forfeited and will not be refunded or cannot be used as a credit against any additional charges, such as damages or cleaning costs. The deposit is refundable if the tenant has met conditions in the lease. The Department of Housing and Residence Life will assess the apartment for damages at the time the apartment is vacated by the tenant. Any refund of the deposit is subject to other charges that the tenant may owe the University.
