The University estate in the UK consists of two main sites (Edgbaston & Selly Oak), along with properties at Stratford on Avon, Ansty, Coniston, and Ironbridge. Those sites accommodate the majority of the core academic and residential facilities that support the work of the University. The facilities extend to approximately half-a-million square meters of floors space in over 200 buildings, and over 250 acres of grounds and sports fields.

The Estates Office is responsible for developing, maintaining and operating those facilities to support the changing needs of our staff, students and partners - and for enhancing the quality of the environment for work and study.
