Building our campus

The University is in the midst of one of the most transformational campus redevelopments since the first phase of building on our Edgbaston campus was completed in 1909 under the auspices of Sir Aston Webb. The development projects, worth £606 million in total, are creating outstanding new facilities for our students, staff and the local community. Following the opening of facilities worth £365 million until 2021, the University has now announced Phase 2 of its capital masterplan, which outlines new projects between 2022 - 2026.
