Student Life in Birmingham

Birmingham has to be one of the most exciting cities in which to study - with five universities and two university colleges it really is a student city. You’ll never be short of things to do in town, whether that’s clubbing, pubbing, shopping or visiting museums and art galleries. Its central location means that Birmingham is also a fantastic spot from which to visit the rest of the UK. Our City Centre Campus is situated right in the heart of the city, with everything you need right on your doorstep. The university has six libraries, so you’ll always have a quiet space to study.

Travel Information


Our City Centre Campus is easy to reach by public transport from across the country. New Street Station is about a 15 minute walk away, but we are closest to Birmingham Moor Street, just a 5-10 minute walk. Public parking is available at Millennium Point in the City Centre campus and is charged by the hour.

City South Campus is well served by public transport. Use the bus stop on Harborne Road, which can be accessed by a footpath between numbers 44 and 46.

City North campus is located just three miles north of the city centre, it’s simple to get to and has on-site parking, and you’re only minutes from the Perry Barr train station and major bus routes.
