Teaching and Learning Building

Plans are now underway for a new purpose-built Teaching and Learning Building at the heart of campus. A hub for education, the facility will provide a state-of-the-art teaching and social study space to support the modern learning experience at Birmingham.


Adjacent to the new library, the building will be IT and audio visual-rich, with excellent access for students with a diverse range of needs and preferences.  It will consist of:

  • A 500 seater lecture theatre
  • A 250 seater interactive lecture theatre
  • 10 seminar rooms for 30 students at a time
  • Learning spaces for up to 1,000 students, which will include areas for individual study, collaborative group work and creative break-out sessions
  • A café

Due for completion in early 2020, the Teaching and Learning Building will underline the University's commitment to providing the best buildings and facilities for its students, staff and researchers.
