About Mobile

Pronounced Mo-BEEL, Mobile is the only saltwater port along Alabama’s gulf coast. Like New Orleans, Mobile has French roots that are proudly displayed in the southern city’s distinct cultural charm. It’s known for hosting the oldest Carnival celebration in the United States, started in 1703. During Carnival season, which includes Mardi Gras, private clubs known as Mystic Societies build floats, carry out parades, and throw numerous formal masquerade balls. Year round, Mobile is home to multiple art museums, a symphony orchestra, a professional ballet company and symphony orchestra, and copious amounts of historic architecture. Every year the city hosts BayFest, a three-day music and entertainment festival that welcomes more than 125 live musical acts to stages scattered across downtown. There are more than 45 designated parks within Mobile’s city limits, many of which are historic. 

Mobile is home to three universities (the University of South Alabama, Faulkner University, and the University of Mobile), and two colleges (Spring Hill College and Bishop State Community College), as well as multiple vocational schools. Students should have no trouble finding housing in this culturally rich destination.

USA and Spring Hill College are located near West Mobile, which is a close commute to downtown. The area is known to be nice, but affordable, and as family-friendly as it is student-filled. Many apartment complexes dot the area between Three Mile and Twelve Mile Creeks.

Midtown sits between the USA/Spring Hill neighborhoods and is popular for downtown workers and anyone seeking economical living that’s still safe, convenient, and filled with local color. The Bel Air Mall and Springdale Mall offer excellent shopping options, while the neighborhood itself is known for its distinct flavor and eclectic atmosphere.

Finally, some students choose to live downtown near to the riverfront in the heart of Mobile. Although sometimes costly, downtown has seen a rebirth in recent years that makes these locations along the Mobile River highly sought after and desirable for the cosmopolitan at heart.
