Driving Directions

Due to construction on I-20/I-59, driving in from east of Birmingham will require you to plan your route ahead of time. Other directions should not be affected. https://5920bridge.com/detours/ will have information. Our best direction to you is to drive in (westbound) on I-20/I-59 and take exit 126A to merge onto US-280 E/US-31 S. Take the University Blvd exit, and follow that on in. The *venue* address is 1400 University Blvd, Birmingham, AL 35294.


FREE parking will be located in a garage across the street from the venue at UAB 12th Street Parking Deck (856 12th St S, Birmingham, AL 35205). Additionally, some free street parking is available on the side streets around the HSC (meters are not enforced on the weekend).

IF you need to or would like to park closer, you can use Lot 5A (1500 University Blvd, Birmingham, AL 35233) which is $2 for the first hour + $1 for each additional hour with a $6 maximum charge. So for $6 you can park right next to the Student Center.


BSides BHAM 2019 will take place at Hill Student Center (HSC) at UAB. The address is 1400 University Blvd, Birmingham, AL 35294.

Below is a map of the 3rd floor where all of the events will take place.
