Our Edgbaston campus is open to members of the local community, who will find that there is something for everyone from art and culture to sport and children's activities.
Everyone is welcome to shop at our regular Farmer’s Market and enjoy our arts on campus. Winterbourne House and Garden and the Lapworth Museum of Geology are among the other attractions you can explore, or you can simply take a walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery and impressive architecture of our 250-acre main site. We also have a range of on-site shops and our own sports facilities at the Sports Centre which has membership open to local people and which you are welcome to join and use.
Throughout the year the University also hosts a range of events, debates, lectures and open forums. Most of these events are free, so please visit our events listings for details and booking information.
