Welcome to the University of Birmingham! We look forward to welcoming you and are here to give you the information and tools for you to make the most of this opportunity, get involved with our University community, and get to know your new home. 

From useful information on our services and support, to guidance on health and safety, and advice on preparing to study with us online and in person, we have lots of information to help you within these Welcome pages. We have a range of resources to help you settle in, make new friends and feel prepared for your studies with us - ready for your famous Birmingham Welcome!

Welcome Week took place from Monday 20 - Friday 24 September, and teaching began on Monday 27 September, however these pages will remain useful to you over the coming weeks whether you have already arrived on campus or will be joining us soon.
