Heritage Hall celebrates a proud past and promises a world-class future.

There’s a good chance that part of your UAB journey will take you to Heritage Hall, an interdisciplinary haven for students and faculties of various disciplines. Upon its completion in 2008, the 95,000-square-foot structure became a new home for many former occupants of the Ullman Building. As such, Heritage Hall was named in honor of the progressive heritage of Samuel Ullman, a proponent of racially equitable education opportunities in late-nineteenth-century Birmingham.

Under one roof, you’ll find the College of Arts and Sciences’ Dean’s Office alongside the departments of communication studies, history, political science and public administration, sociology, and the African American Studies program. With other multidisciplinary spaces like labs for mathematics and communications students, Heritage Hall is an altogether unique part of campus easily accessible by way of the Campus Green.

The legacy of the past meets the potential of the future at Heritage Hall.


Main Entrance

Heritage Hall is easy to find, located just across University Boulevard from the Hill Student Center. It has stood at this strategic point on campus since 2008.

Computer Lab

Heritage Hall lab spaces like the one you see here serve a diverse body of students and faculty. From mathematics to communication and beyond, technology is always at the fingertips of students who find their way to Heritage Hall.

Heritage Hall: another step forward in connecting academics with the outdoors.
