Living in the Blazer Community

UAB's brainpower draws from our diversity -- diversity of ideas, of backgrounds, of specialties, of perspectives. Our campus is filled with individuals; our success is driven by their collaboration.

Here, students come first.  Exciting opportunities for experiential learning prepare you for graduate education or a career -- in the lab or the music studio, during an internship, study away, or service-learning project.  Students benefit from a real-world environment in a university renowned for science, health, technology and the arts and humanities, on a campus that values diversity.  More than 2,000 students live in our residence halls, sharing living space and learning space within walking distance of everything UAB has to offer.  Qualified students in all disciplines can challenge themselves through our Honors Academy.  Students in our close academic community get personal attention from our top faculty and through our many academic support services.  The low cost of tuition makes UAB a real value.  It all happens in Birmingham -- recently named one of the most livable cities in America -- where museums and concerts, beautiful parks and must-see attractions are minutes away.
