As many University of Alabama students are learning online, we want you to know that we have many campus resources available to ensure your learning experience continues without interruption.
UA has designated more than 60 classrooms and meeting rooms as virtual learning spaces – areas where students can attend online class meetings while on campus.
Many library computers are equipped with Respondus LockDown Browser and web cameras. Students may reserve an appropriate computer through the UA Libraries website.
Loaner hotspots, web cams, and laptops are available for students in need. Students may submit a Technology Need Application on the Student Care and Well-Being website.
The Sanford Media Center is available to the campus community for consultations and resources regarding media-based projects.
