Campus Life

Favorite Spots on Campus

There are many reasons to decide to earn an undergraduate degree at the University of South Alabama, but one of the deciding factors we hear about the most is South’s beautiful campus. Students on a campus tour experience our sunny weather, stunning scenery, and awesome student amenities and fall hopelessly in love. Read on to see why.


Location, Location, Location

The main campus of the University of South Alabama is situated in the Springhill neighborhood of Mobile, Alabama. Surrounded by quaint homes and golf courses with green, rolling hills, our campus truly feels like a home away from home.


Starbucks, anyone?

You’ve heard that one about college students and coffee, right? One of our student body’s favorite spots to fuel up for a study session is our Starbucks coffee shop, located conveniently on the bottom floor of the Marx Library. Students gather here to caffeinate, grab a bite to eat, study, or just take a little break. 


Student Center

If you think of the campus as a living, breathing organism, the Student Center is its heart. From numerous delicious food options to the campus bookstore and hosting student events, the student center is at the center of it all. Our newly-renovated facility is the perfect location to provide students a place for connection, community, and relaxation. 


Recreation Center

Whether fitness is your jam or you prefer to hang by the pool, our 116,000 square-foot Student Recreation facility offers something for every student. Take a BodyScupt, Zumba, or Yoga class offered by one of our fabulous trainers. Get competitive with a friend on one of our badminton, volleyball, or basketball courts. If water is more your thing, swim laps in our indoor, 25-lane pool, or play water polo in our outdoor pool with volleyball nets, basketball goals, water polo goals, and a vortex. 


Nature Trails

Is nature more your speed? Need to get some fresh air between classes? The Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail on campus spans more than three miles of pathways along 95 acres of forest and a large pond. Best of all? It’s right in the middle of campus and probably a stone’s throw away from one of your classrooms. Catch a glimpse of Alabama wildlife such as herons, alligators, and turtles while strolling through native pine and oak woodlands.


Football Stadium

In the south, college football is an institution, and South is no exception. From your residence hall, walk to the new Hancock Whitney football stadium on campus for Game Day and let your Jag Pride cheer us to victory.
