Our Edgbaston campus offers a safe, friendly environment, a picturesque setting and all the amenities of a small town. These include a wide range of shops, cafés, banks, a travel agent, a post office, a regular farmers’ market, medical and dental surgeries, sports facilities and a train station.
The campus provides an inspiring location for academic study, with its historic red brick architecture set on a spacious green parkland site. Many students consider the campus setting to be one of the University’s greatest assets.
There are also many cultural attractions on our campus that are free for all our students to enjoy, including an award-winning art gallery, a geological museum and a botanic garden. We are continually developing and improving the campus facilities.
In September 2012 the new Bramall Music Auditorium opened as the latest addition to our campus. This multi-million pound development provides a 450-seat auditorium for music, opera, drama and prestigious lectures, as well as state-of-the-art rehearsal rooms and recording facilities.
Other developments currently in progress include a new sports centre, which will feature a 50-metre swimming pool, and a new library development which will provide outstanding facilities for a new generation of students and researchers, as well as an open access cultural hub for the University and the city.
