The Hill Center is an every-day destination for virtually all Blazers.

The Hill Student Center completed a $35 million reimagining in 2016 that transformed this hub of UAB campus life into the 162,000-square-foot structure you see today. The essentials for students, faculty, staff, and visitors are all here: the campus bookstore for supplies and official gear; a food court with diverse dining options; and, of course, plenty of common space to meet up, grab a bite, or study. But, there’s even more to the Hill Center than meets the eye. It’s also an easily accessible home for critical student services like the Professional Development and Career Center and Disability Support Services. All of those offerings along with state-of-the-art meeting spaces like the 276-seat Alumni Theater make the Hill Center an every-day destination for almost all Blazers.

Study, snack, and soak up the sun in the center of campus.



Open-air elevated balconies offer a centralized space to get outside, study, socialize, or take in this amazing view of University Boulevard and the Campus Green.

An unmistakable first stop for virtually all students at UAB.



For many Blazers, the Hill Center is an important first stop for that morning coffee or tea. You can’t miss its easy-to-spot exterior signage at the corner of University Boulevard and 14th St S.

A place where campus life comes together for students, faculty, and more.
