With a metropolitan population of over one million people, Birmingham is Alabama’s largest city. Concerts and headliners, sports and cultural events, great restaurants and fun neighborhood hangouts - in a place like Birminhgam there's plenty to see, do, and experience! And because UAB is centrally located, you don’t have to go far from campus to hit the highlights. All of Birmingham’s best bets are just minutes away.
America's Most Livable Communities, a project of Partners for Livable Communities, has listed Birmingham as one of America's best places to live, work, and play, and the National Civic League has named Birmingham an "All-America City."
