Capstone Village first opened in West Alabama in 2005, occupying 24 acres along the eastern edge of The University of Alabama campus. The University of Alabama purchased Capstone Village in 2009 with a vision to further integrate it into the campus community. As a result, Capstone Village provides a wealth of independent living services and amenities that make it Tuscaloosa’s distinctive choice for modern senior living.

This growing list of amenities for retirees includes:

  • 24-hour security
  • Access to UA facilities such as the Recreation Center and campus libraries
  • Access to classes offered by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
  • Membership to the University Club
  • Access to campus transit and Capstone Village complimentary transportation
  • Opportunities to attend Crimson Tide athletics events
  • Tickets to campus cultural events

The 228,000-square-foot Capstone Village continues to differentiate itself from other retirement communities by providing a senior-friendly lifestyle option that connects lifelong learning with the fulfillment of the real needs and wants of active retirees. With 108 apartments, 22 garden homes, 13 assisted living suites and 16 memory care studio apartments, Capstone Village offers modern, upscale retirement and is a legendary place to call home.
