Denman Hall was a 10-story, 68,840 square-foot student apartment building on the UAB Campus at 1604 9th Avenue South.

The building project was announced in March 1972, and was proposed to have 100 units with a total project cost of $1.6 million. The cost was offset by an interest subsidy from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The concrete-framed structure with brick infill was designed by Henry Sprott Long & Associates and constructed by Brasfield & Gorrie. Denman Hall opened in fall 1973.

Originally the building housed four 3-bedroom apartments, 86 1-bedroom units, and 10 efficiencies. The larger units were later subdivided so that units available ranged from 312 square-foot efficiencies to 525-square foot 1-bedroom apartments. The basement of the building also had a recreation room, which later was equipped to serve as a computer lab, as well as a coin-operated laundry and vending machines.

The university announced plans to demolish Denman Hall during the September 2023 meeting of the University of Alabama Board of Trustees. The site was to be used "as green space and for future development," with the university saving an estimated $365,000 per year in maintenance and utilities.
