Directions to UAB School of Nursing

Construction has started on an expanded and renovated UAB School of Nursing, “Building the Future of Nursing.” This $32 million, more than 72,000-square-feet project will be complete by August 2018. This has necessitated the closing of the pedestrian bridge over University Blvd. that goes between the School and Lister Hill Library, the main entrance of the UAB School of Nursing along University Blvd., as well as the entrances into the School off of Unity Park.

As such, the only entrances into the UAB School of Nursing are in the back of the building off of 9th Ave. S. – one is on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center (LRC), the Student Success entrance is next to the first floor LRC entrance, and the Main Entrance is on the Plaza area connected to the closed pedestrian bridge.

To access the UAB School of Nursing during construction:

From US 31/Red Mountain Expressway area: Take University Blvd. to 18th Street S. Turn left onto 18th Street. At the end of the first block turn right onto 9th Avenue S. Go to the stop sign at the top of the hill above UAB Student Health. Turn right into Lot 7D. The entrances to the UAB School of Nursing can be accessed at the bottom of this parking lot by following the installed signage to the Main Entrance, Student Affairs and LRC.

From the I-65 area: Take University Blvd. to 16th Street S. Turn right onto 16th Street S., between the UAB Recreation Center and Ryals School of Public Health. At the end of the first block turn left onto 9th Avenue S. Take 9th Avenue S. past the residence hall on your right and parking deck on your left. Before reaching the stop sign at the top of the hill you will turn left into Lot 7D. The entrances to the UAB School of Nursing can be accessed at the bottom of this parking lot by following the installed signage to the Main Entrance, Student Affairs and LRC.

May 18, 2017 through September 1, 2017: UAB has started construction that is expected to last through the summer in the surface parking lot behind the School of Nursing on 9th Avenue – specifically lot 7D between the LRC and Deck 9 (Ryals Deck) – to add more and larger drains just above the first-floor entrance to the LRC in an effort to improve water runoff. For those coming to the School, this means:

  • Deck 9 (Ryals Deck) access to the plaza, LRC 2nd floor entrance and Main SON Building entrance via the walkway behind the Webb Building remains open. The LRC 1st Floor and Student Success will be accessible via the temporary exterior stairs from the 7D parking lot or from the LRC 2nd floor via the elevator or stairwells.
  • Access to the School of Nursing and LRC for those with mobility issues will be the ramp/walkway immediately next to Deck 9 that leads to the walkway behind the Webb Building. You will need to use the exterior elevator lift to reach plaza entrances for the LRC and Main SON Building. The LRC 1st Floor and Student Affairs will have to be accessed through the LRC 2nd floor via elevator. Signage will be placed along the construction fencing directing those with mobility issues to the ramp and lift.
  • There also will be access to the LRC 1st Floor and Student Affairs via the sidewalk immediately next to the LRC. The Main SON Building entrance on the plaza can be accessed using the elevator to the LRC 2nd Floor then through to the plaza. Signage will be placed along the construction fencing directing students and others to the stairway.
