Our students come to UAB with parents who have been there for them—PTA, band boosters, Touchdown Clubs—you name it, our parents have been leaders on behalf of their students. So it is natural to want to continue with that support throughout your student's college years. You want to be "in the loop" and ready to offer direction, some parental advice, a word of encouragement or a little something to say, "I believe in you."

Campus Safety & Security
Safety is a top priority at UAB. We have an accredited police force that patrols the area 24 hours a day, help phones across campus, and late-night, on-demand safety escorts.
Craving the sort of canned fruit, mystery meat and slightly doughy glop you struggled to choke down all through elementary school? Sorry, we can't help. Instead, think delicious food, wide variety, good prices, lots of places.
