Plan your visit

Make the most of the wide range of events, information, support and facilities available to you during Arrivals Weekend (22-23 September 2018).

Our Parents' Welcome Addresses are designed to give parents, partners, friends and family of new students an introduction to student life at Birmingham. Please book your place online - if your student will be moving into University accommodation, please make sure they have confirmed their timeslot for moving in before you book your place.

We have prepared some moving in information to help make the process as smooth as possible. Make sure you understand where you will need to go and when. Our campus maps and directions will help you navigate to and around campus. Please see our travel information for students for more advice about travelling to the University.

Have a look at our Arrivals Weekend information to see details of the full range of activity and to plan your day. Don’t forget to visit the Welcome Marquee during your visit. The Welcome Marquee will host a wide range of support services and wellbeing information and our campus tours will depart from this meeting point.

Please note: the terms parent, son and daughter are used throughout these web pages for simplicity, but we understand that you may be a legal guardian, carer or step-parent. This information is aimed at anyone fulfilling a parenting role for a young person.
