The Ferguson Student Center — affectionately known as “the Ferg” — is the heart of The University of Alabama’s campus. From grabbing coffee or a meal to providing space to hang out and relax with friends, you can find a place for most anything within the walls of the Ferg.

The Ferg plays host to different events and programs for students, student organizations, UA departments, faculty and staff members. The Ferg and its staff seek to maximize each student’s learning experience by supporting, supplementing and completing the overall mission of The University of Alabama by offering a wide variety of high-quality services, collaborative programming and leisure activities.

The Ferg also partners with student groups and university departments to organize events for the student body. In addition, the building features spaces that can be reserved for student organizations and departmental use.
