Campus tours

CampusToursWe know it’s important that you get a chance to visit your future university before you start. Whilst large-scale events such as open days are currently being run online, we will be running a programme of campus tours which will begin to operate in autumn 2020 and will follow the latest government guidance on safety and social distancing.


Our walking tours are led by an undergraduate student currently studying at the University. Our tours are designed to give a general overview of the campus lasting approximately 30-45 minutes and are not subject specific. Your tour will take place outside given the current situation, and will give you a chance to get a feel for the place that could be your future home. We’ll make sure to show you the main spaces on campus where you’ll live and learn.

To receive further information when our campus tour dates and times become available, you can register your interest. We’ll then contact you once bookings are open so that you can choose a date and time that suits you.

Individual visits and self-guided campus tours

For the time being, the University campus is not running events involving external visitors so that we can focus on giving our students the best possible learning experience. A phased reopening of campus is ongoing so please refer back to this website for further updates and self-guided tour information when available. We are currently developing a range of information to help you get a feel for what life is like on our campus.

Visiting accommodation

The best way to see what accommodation is on offer at Birmingham is to use the 360 tours available on the accommodation section of our website. We are currently unable to show visitors around our accommodation sites as students are now living in all Halls of Residence, but the 360 tours give you a great idea of what your room may look like.

Our virtual campus tour 

We have a virtual tour of our campus available online, giving you the chance to look around some of the spaces you'd experience as a student here. We are continually adding new buildings and information to the tour and so why not take the time to explore.
