The Magic City

UAB Campus Green

Welcome to the Birmingham, the Magic City!

What’s the biggest reason studying at UAB is different? The answer’s right in our name: Birmingham itself. A nationally-renowned food and beverage scene, thousands of acres of parks within city limits, and unique arts and cultural venues are just a handful of ways the Magic City has made a name for itself. Plus, the best of the rest of the southeastern U.S. is less than a day’s drive away, making our central location in the region an asset for those intent on exploring what’s around us.

iVisit is the easy way to see virtually everything waiting for you in and around Birmingham.
