Orientation for New Residents

Orientation will be held Thursday, June 18, 2015 in the Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium. Registration and a buffet breakfast will begin at 7:00 a.m. We will start promptly at 7:30 a.m. and run until approximately 4:00 p.m. Please make arrangements to stay the entire time.

Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium (MCSA) is located in the Spain Wallace building on the corner of  7th Ave South &  19th St South.

Parking for orientation (Updated 6/10/15): 
Parking is provided in two specific lots: Lot 15N (1319 5th Avenue South) or Lot 15C (1200 6th Avenue South near the campus bookstore). (Click here to view map.) After parking in one of these lots, you will need to walk to a nearby remote lot to catch the “Blue” Blazer Express bus. Those two lots are highlighted on the attached map with a black sharpie.  

·         If you park in Lot 15N, you will catch the “Blue” Blazer Express bus in Remote Lot 3 (which has green stripes and is northwest of Lot 15N.) For details, please click here to view map.

·         If you park in Lot 15C, you will catch the “Blue” Blazer Express bus in Remote Lot 2 which is blue on the map and is west of Lot 15C. For details, please click here to view map.

Exit the “Blue” Blazer Express bus at the Hillman Building on 20th Street South. Walk south on 20th Street South, and turn right (West) on 7th Avenue South. Walk one block to the Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium, which is at the corner of 19th Street and 7th Avenue South.

To keep your vehicle from being ticketed, it is important that you park it only in one of these two lots.

Instructions for Returning to your Car
In the afternoon, at the conclusion of GME’s orientation schedule, you may want to ride the “Silver” Blazer Express which, beginning at 2:30 PM, is scheduled to stop every 9 minutes on 18th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. This Blazer stop is on the street beside the West Pavilion; we will be glad to show you where it is. We recommend that you exit the “Silver” Blazer Express bus at the UAB Campus Bookstore on 6th Avenue South and walk to your vehicle in either Lot 15N or Lot 15C.
