Our library is located on the ground floor of Park House, on the main University campus.

The  address is:

HSMC Library
Park House

Birmingham, B15 2RT


How do I register for the library?

You can join the library if you are from one of the following categories:

  • Staff at HSMC
  • current HSMC students
  • Nuffield Trust staff
  • Health Foundation staff
  • Birmingham Public Health 
  • Public Health Trainees in the West Midlands

All eligible library members will be required to fill in and return a library registration form prior to their first visit.

I am not entitled to join the library, can I still visit?

You can use our collection for reference purposes only.

We would ask you to phone up beforehand so that we can make sure that the resources you require are available on the day.

Also please note that study space is restricted, and we cannot accommodate reference users on busy teaching days.

Computing facilities

We have networked PC work terminals available and can provide guest access to the WiFinetwork for external contract users. If you are a current student you access the wireless network using your UoB username and password. Printing: there is a b/w printer available to current students and staff only.


The kitchen at Park House is staffed every day until 14.00 - except during August when it remains closed throughout.

Car parking

HSMC has a large car park for all its users. Please note: parking your car is now chargeable, so you will need to display a car parking ticket in your windscreen.
