Room Registration is USA's program for current residents to return to University housing for the next academic year. Room Registration is easy & convenient, since everything will be done online in PAWS! To be successful at Room Registration just follow these simple steps:
  1. Apply on time – You can't participate in Room Registration if you miss the deadline. The Room Registration schedule assigns your registration window based on your current class standing. Familiarize yourself with the timeline in advance so you'll have every opportunity to be successful!
  2. Know your options – We have a wide variety of residence halls, room types and communities. Visit our Residence Halls page to explore our residential communities and room types. Be prepared to choose your top housing preferences without hesitation.
  3. Have a plan – Know how the system works. If you have specific roommates in mind for next year, coordinate with them in advance about housing choices and which one is going to register first to obtain the "Roommate Code." Be familiar with the steps for the system to obtain a "Roommate Code." It's a good idea to have a list of alternative options that are acceptable to you (and your roommates) in case your first choices are not available.
  4. Follow through – Once you have a plan, follow through on it. Know when your housing selection window is. Be sure to confirm your reservation by making your $150 prepayment by the deadline.
We've tried to make Room Registration simple while still giving all of our returning residents as many options and choices as possible. You need to be informed to be successful, so take some time to read through the brochures below. If you have questions, just contact the Housing Business Office at (251) 460-6185 or housing@southalabama.edu. We're happy to help!
