Greetings!

I'm moving to Huntsville in May as a grad student at UAH. I'm from the north and completely unfamiliar with the city. I'm a non-driver and looking for apartments close to campus. Now distance is no issue for me - I really do love to walk - but housing seems to be very limited by University Drive. I'm looking only at apartments north of UAH and in the area between UAH and Oakwood.

Are there opportunities to safely cross University Drive? Also any information from people, especially students, in the area would be helpful.

Thank you!

What are the prospects of you becoming a driver?

Why don't you live on campus. There are plenty vacancies, as they built (ing) another residence hall, and until recently they made it mandatory for freshmen to live on campus Regardless of whether they were local or out of state. Just a couple weeks ago UAH lifted the policy (or at least made possible for freshmen (parents) living within 30 miles to live at home. The expenses would've been $5-6k. For that money you could find something outside campus, but you might need to drive.

Crossing University: there's a crossing bridge right north of the campus.
the only one.

otherwise, Cross at your own risk.


Another option: find a driver roommate off campus
