The University

Established in 1900, the University of Birmingham is a beautiful redbrick university, with a leafy green campus, widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful campuses in the UK. Birmingham students can study and relax on the grass in the shadows of stunning redbrick architecture, graduate in our inspiring Great Hall and learn from world-leading experts in a research-rich environment.

Building you a place to call home
As part of our continued investment, we're building a striking parkland at the centre of campus, aptly named 'The Green Heart'. Designed to allow students to enjoy a place to study and relax in the outdoors amongst wild flowers, native plants and 160 new trees, whilst also home to an outdoor cinema, events, markets, a grass auditorium and much more.  Read
