New Look. New Owners. All New Floor Plans.


New. That’s the word to describe what is happening at The Preserve at Tuscaloosa, off-campus apartments near the University of Alabama. New ownership means a fresh approach with dedicated professionals creating a new look, and equally as important, a new living experience — facilitated by an award-winning management team.

A multi-million dollar renovation is transforming this property into the place to live in Tuscaloosa. The renovation includes all-new floor plans, upgraded appliances, improved internet speeds, and a complete overhaul of many community amenities including the expanded pool area. A convenient location near the east side of campus makes The Preserve at Tuscaloosa the ideal place to call home.
