Why GO to UAH? Our beautiful 400-acre campus is in the heart of Huntsville, Alabama. Also known as the Rocket City, Huntsville has all the perks of nearby big cities like Nashville and Atlanta but with less traffic and a lower cost of living. Not to mention, we enjoy a mild climate perfect for year-round outdoor activities and entertainment. And right across the street from campus are a number of major federal and industry employers like Redstone Arsenal, NASA, and Cummings Research Park.

What will you LEARN at UAH? Everything you'll need to know! Our eight colleges – Liberal Arts, Engineering, Nursing, Science, Business Administration, Education, Honors, and Graduate Studies – offer over 80 areas of study. And as a tier-one research university, we have more than a dozen research centers, as well as numerous labs and facilities, to allow our students to get hands-on experience in the field of their choosing. But unlike many other, larger research universities, at UAH you won't get lost in the crowd. Our small class sizes and low faculty-to-student ratio ensures personalized attention, while our Student Success Center provides the resources you need to succeed inside the classroom and beyond.
