Hillside Commons is pleased to announce that we will be unveiling a brand new clubhouse coming Fall 2023 – Winter 2024. Slated to be constructed by our resort style swimming pool, this state-of-the-art facility will feature a fully stocked fitness center, a café space with self-serve Starbucks coffee, and a student lounge featuring table games like billiards. Our on-site leasing office will also be relocated here and will be alongside space for secure package and mail delivery, ensuring that you’ll be able to exercise, study, have fun, and handle property matters all under one roof!

“The Best Student Housing Tuscaloosa Has to Offer…”


         I absolutely love living here. Management is so friendly and always works very quickly to answer any questions or solve any problems. It’s so great that I’ve already renewed my lease for next year!! There are so many ways to get involved in our community. We have fun get togethers put on by management, fun competitions, and random giveaways! Hillside Commons is in a great location! Super quiet, safe and secure, and less than a mile to campus! People can’t believe how great of a deal we get when I tell them my low rent price and all of the amenities that come included! 10/10 would recommend Hillside Commons!"

         LIVE HERE if you want a great housing experience!! The complex is conveniently located close to campus with small commute times to downtown Tuscaloosa, Northport, and Midtown. The complex is well maintained by the very attentive and welcoming staff. I have had very few maintenance issues; when there is any issue, it has always been fixed swiftly. The units are spacious and newly renovated. This duplex style property allows for more privacy and the ability to park right by your unit is a major plus. It also feels really safe. I prefer it to the massive dorm-style apartment complexes around town. I wish I had moved in sooner!

         Okay y'all, going through a property management transition is never easy BUT staying with Hillside Commons was a stellar decision. The maintenance department is wildly responsive and knowledgeable (we're talking always same-day fixing here!) The management is personal and goes above and beyond to attend to the needs of all residents. Even the sidewalk stays nice and clean under their care (seriously, pressure washed.) The quality that College Town Communities aspires to is extraordinarily high, but they work tirelessly to see it actually happen. I highly recommend living here. You're minutes from campus but just outside enough to avoid the traffic! I've been here for years and it's truly home.
