About Alabama State University

Alabama State University was founded in 1867, in Marion, Ala., as a school for African-Americans. The school started as the Lincoln Normal School with $500 raised by nine freed slaves now known as the Marion Nine, making ASU one of the nation’s oldest institutions of higher education founded for black Americans.

Today, Alabama State University, located in Montgomery, Ala., is a widely respected, world-class institution of higher learning which welcomes students of all races. We offer nearly 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, from our historic teacher education program to our new, high-demand programs in health sciences, new Ph.D. in microbiology  and minor in international business.

Campus information

ASU has experienced tremendous growth during the past few years, with the addition of a number of new campus buildings to accommodate increased enrollment and exciting new academic programs. The most recent construction includes The New ASU Stadium, the University's $62 million football stadium which opened in November 2012, and the John Garrick Hardy Student Services Center, our 81,000-square-foot facility that is designed to be a one-stop shop for recreation and for transacting important student business.

Other new facilities include two expansive new co-ed residence halls, as well as a renovation and 46,000-square-foot addition to the University's Library and Media facility, the Levi Watkins Learning Center, new baseball and softball fields and a football complex, which houses coaches' offices, a state-of-the-art training and weight room, a film room and much more.

Alabama State University is located in Montgomery, the capital of Alabama and the birthplace of the modern Civil Rights Movement. The second largest city in Alabama, Montgomery’s population stands at more than 200,000.


We have 13 separate residence facilities at ASU, including three apartment-style clusters with multiple buildings. Most of our well-equipped residence units are equipped with twin size beds, a chest of drawers, desks, wastebaskets, chairs, window coverings, mattresses and mattress covers. Some halls feature coin-operated or swipe card machines for personal laundering.
