Here's your chance.

From UVA press release

 The Virginia athletics department announced today (May 15) a supply of bricks from the exterior of University Hall will be available for free on Thursday, May 16. The distribution of the bricks will take place from 6-9 p.m. at the northwest corner of University Hall on the sidewalk adjacent to the visitor parking lot.

There is a one-brick per person limit while the supply lasts.

University Hall opened in 1965 and hosted concerts and special events in addition to UVA men's and women's basketball games. The last Cavalier men’s and women’s basketball games were played in the building in 2006. 

The building is scheduled for implosion on Saturday, May 25 at 10 a.m. A live stream of the demolition will be streamed on Facebook at VirginiaCavaliers.
