Ensuring your health and safety
Your safety is our top priority. All campus buildings are monitored by electronic access control systems 24 hours per day, and residence halls have staff on duty every hour of the day. UAB has its own full-service law enforcement agency on campus. The B-ALERT system is used to communicate to the entire campus at the same time via voice calls, SMS and email, so you are up to date at all times. Transit Blazer Express, UAB's campus bus service, offers free transportation for students, employees and authorized visitors along six routes—some of which run as late as midnight.
The recently renovated Student Health Services and Counseling and Wellness Center includes 23,000 square feet of space dedicated to the health, counseling and wellness needs of UAB students. The facility is equipped to meet all your primary health care needs including: appointments with healthcare providers, routine diagnostic lab testing and X-ray services. Confidential counseling services are available to all UAB students at no cost.
