Find University Hall just off the Campus Green, anchoring the west side of campus. As UAB’s first-ever LEED-certified building, University Hall set a new standard for sustainability and reaffirmed the University’s commitment to greener long-term decision-making. Inside, you’re likely to see students and faculty representing a multitude of diverse disciplines; that’s because University Hall is home to seven departments of the College of Arts and Sciences. Students and faculty from fields including philosophy and computer science will cross paths in University Hall’s 110,000 square feet. 23 classrooms, 167 faculty offices, and a 300-seat auditorium are just a few reasons why University Hall represents a world-class step forward for the College of Arts and Sciences.
