Important Travel Information

Open days are a very busy time for the University and as such we are only able to offer a limited number of parking spaces on these days. For your convenience, we would strongly recommend using public transport to reach us.

The University of Birmingham is fortunate enough to have its own railway station, ‘University’. The centre of the main campus is just a five-minute walk from University station. If you are travelling by train, travel to Birmingham New Street. Then take a Cross-City train to University station – at least four trains depart from New Street station every hour for University station (train line: Longbridge or Redditch).

Regular bus services (nos. 61, X62, 63) run from Corporation Street in the city centre.

A limited amount of car parking spaces are available for visitors at the AA-signposted North East Car Park. This is a pay and display car park at a rate of £6 per day (please note that availability of spaces cannot be guaranteed).
