Erskine Ramsay Hall (originally the Science Building or Science Hall) was an academic building built for Birmingham College (now Birmingham-Southern College) in 1916.

The building was the second substantial building for the college, following Rose Owen Hall. It was designed by William Warren and constructed by Roper & Strauss, incorporating decorative tiles made by the New York Architectural Terra-Cotta Company.

The Science Building was renamed in honor of educator and philanthropist Erskine Ramsay. It was demolished in 1988 for construction of the new Elton B. Stephens Science Center.
