Residence Hall tutoring sessionsStudent Housing and Residence Life, in partnership with the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center (VMASC), is bringing tutoring to the residence halls through “Study Squad” – a means to make academic success more accessible, comfortable and convenient for UAB students.

Beginning Sept. 17, students can meet up with tutors in the Cahaba Room of the New Freshman Residence Hall (900 17th St S, Birmingham, AL 35205) and get academic help with an array of subjects. Sessions will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays and continue throughout the fall semester. The schedule is as follows:

  • Sunday: Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology
  • Monday: Chemistry and Physics
  • Tuesday: Chemistry and Mathematics

The goal is to provide students critical academic assistance in a safe and comfortable space. Coordinators hope this innovative way of studying will relieve pressure for students who find it difficult to stop by the VSMAC in-between classes.

Are you interested in joining the Study Squad? It’s as easy as showing up! For more information and disability accommodations, contact the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center at
