This article is about the 2019 academic building. For the former dormitory, see University Hall (1969).

University Hall is a 109,110 square-foot L-shaped academic building located on the southwestern corner of the UAB Campus Green, at the intersection of 10th Avenue South and 14th Street South. It was constructed in 2019 to replace the UAB Humanities Building as home of the UAB College of Arts and Sciences. It contains 23 classrooms, 167 faculty offices, and a 300-seat auditorium.

University Hall houses the Departments of Anthropology, Computer Science, English, World Languages and Literatures, Mathematics, Philosophy, and Social Work.

University Hall was designed by Goodwyn Mills Cawood and built by M. J. Harris Construction Services. It was the first UAB building to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The interior design features a "grand stair" with seating areas and views of the green from the joint of the two wings. Finishes make use of the university's green and gold colors, and also incorporate flame-like elements referring to the Blazers mascot. The exterior features entrances at grade from two levels, an outdoor class area, and a planted bioswale to catch rainfall.
