The Exchange

The University of Birmingham: The Exchange is going to breathe new life into the former Municipal Bank in Centenary Square. The city centre site will become the home for a diverse range of activities for all people in Birmingham and beyond to get involved with.

The Exchange will be a place for curiosity, celebration, collaboration and change. It will bring together communities to shape the ideas and solutions that will make our cities and regions better places to live, work and learn.

It will act as the catalyst for a range of city and community-focused research, teaching and engagement activities, including exhibitions, talks, workshops and seminars, as well as providing dedicated facilities for collaboration and co-creation across a number of key themes:

  • Driving regional growth by using data and evidence to support public and private organisations to make better strategic decisions. This will be delivered by WM REDI.
  • Developing the business skills our city needs through our future skills initiative and innovative CPD.
  • Preparing future leaders to succeed in an ever changing workplace.
  • Inspiring communities by engaging and involving the public in research that matters.

In addition to this, the facility will host a café that is open to the public, and a suite of bookable spaces.
