The main campus at Edgbaston is set in 250 acres of parkland with spacious lawns, trees, a lake and significant works of sculpture enhancing its landscape. It has all the amenities of a small town, including shops, bars, cafés, banks, medical and dental surgeries, sports facilities, and even our own railway station. An award-winning art gallery, a concert hall and a museum are among the cultural attractions that make it a place to enjoy.
The Selly Oak campus, two miles from Edgbaston, is a green 80-acre site with a village atmosphere. There’s also a satellite campus in the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, home to the Shakespeare Institute.
The University is undergoing a £600 million transformation with a brand-new library, new accommodation, a state-of-the-art sport and fitness centre with provision for elite athletes and a dedicated student hub already completed. Other new additions to the campus include the Alan Walters Building, a £10 million Postgraduate Teaching Centre for the Birmingham Business School, and the new Collaborative Teaching Laboratory, which combines practical teaching in science and engineering.
The Muirhead Tower on Edgbaston campus has research study facilities including dedicated study areas for postgraduate research students. The University has also recently opened a research hub for PhD students at Westmere House, providing a dedicated postgraduate research space that offers state-of-the-art facilities and a bright and airy social space.
The second phase of developments has recently been announced, with a raft of new projects outlined for the next 10 years to keep the university at the forefront of education and research.
