Other Meeting Spaces at UAB

Edge of Chaos

The café (Room 411) has three SMART boards and depending on the setup can seat anywhere from 12 to 25 people, and room 425, which seats 12, has 1 SMART board. The café will actually hold 24 for certain because it has six tables that seat 4 people each, but that also depends on the set-up you have in mind. 

The smaller conference rooms (Room 420 & 421) which seat four can sometimes hold five, but that makes them pretty tight.

The Atrium, which holds up to 165, is very open with little to no privacy, which is something you may want to consider depending on how sensitive the information is that you will be discussing. The Atrium features a large screen, ceiling-mounted projector, PA system, and large cylindrical blackboard.

Reservations in the Edge of Chaos can be made online here

The Hill Student Center offers multiple meeting rooms of various sizes and capabilities. The rooms can be reserved for events, meetings, and more. Registered student organizations, UAB-wide programs, faculty/staff organizations and external guests of the University are eligible to reserve the facility.
