This beautiful building pictured above is finally becoming a reality on UAB’s campus. On December 9th, the University of Alabama at Birmingham will host a ground-breaking ceremony for the Collat School of Business. 

This new 104,000 square foot building will be located on University Boulevard, specifically between 12th Street South and 13th Street South. Controversially, the building will take the place of yet another regularly used parking lot on campus.

The state-of-the-art facility will be open to students by Fall 2018. Business Students, faculty and staff alike are excited about this new space and look forward to the new amenities it will offer, which include the Bill L. Harbert Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

This new building will be transformational for our school, and we are thrilled to be able to share our excitement and our plans with the community at our groundbreaking

– Eric P. Jack, PhD, Dean of the UAB Collat School of Business.

Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to attend this exciting event. The ceremony starts at 10am.
