However, the city feel and atmosphere is always present and you will never run out of things to do. Situated over 3 main campuses, BCU offers a huge range of experience of the city - you'll never finish exploring! Nights out in Brum are never disappointing, from the famous Broad Street to other amazing areas that you'll explore in freshers. Don't forget to try out the local "buz" that's going around town!
