The university is located on the southern side of the city Huntsville. Huntsville has a good population but the city isn’t over- crowded. It is surrounded by a wide range of mountains popularly called as Chapman mountain’s which is usually a good site for university students to hand out at during the weekend. A tent, marshmallows and friends on top of Chapman hill range can make up to be great refreshment for the hectic weekday.
Being constructed in 1961, the university doesn’t portray a look of a new era all together. UAHuntsville has modern infrastructures and apart from the main Shelby center all other building give a modern feel to the campus.
The residing options on and off campus both are good. The problem with on campus housing is that you will be restricted and there have been complaints about untidiness in the campus dorms. The rent range varies from 800-1200 US$ for a month which is negligible in comparison with tuition fees.
