Tuscaloosa is located along the banks of the Black Warrior River in West Central Alabama. Tuscaloosa is led by a Mayor/Council form of government and is home to just under 100,000 residents as well as a thriving business community. Tuscaloosa has appeared in Money magazine’s annual list of the country’s best places to live.
Tuscaloosa has been traditionally known as the Druid City because of the numerous water oaks planted in its downtown streets since the 1840’s. City leaders have adopted the moniker “The City of Champions” after the Alabama Crimson Tide football team won the BCS National Championship in 2010, 2012, 2013 and again in 2016.
There are a number of local groups and organizations that can help new hires and their families become more familiar with the local school systems, realtors, and the city itself. For more information, new and prospective employees are encouraged to explore resources online such at the City of Tuscaloosa, UA off campus housing, Tuscaloosa Association of Realtors, Tuscaloosa City Schools, Tuscaloosa County Schools and the Tuscaloosa Chamber of Commerce.
