Directions to the School of Biosciences (4th floor)

Train: travelling by train is the easiest way to visit the University of Birmingham. The train station is named University and is served approximately every 10 minutes with trains from the major Birmingham train station, Birmingham New Street.

Exit the University train station, turn left and walk across the bridge and then road. Walk between two brick buildings (Murray Learning Centre and School of Computer Science) and continue down the hill past the Collaborative Teaching Laboratory on the left to an 8 storey tower, this is the School of Biosciences. Turn left and enter the building through sliding doors. Turn right in to the lobby and take the lifts on the left up to the 4th floor. Ring the bell to gain entrance to the 4th floor.

Car: The University of Birmingham is accessible via the national road network from the North (M6 and M5), east (A14 and M6) and South (M40 and M5). Use the postcode B15 2TT for Sat Nav directions. Two car parks are available on Pritchatt’s Road, for further information visit here. These car parks can be busy/full and so I advise train travel if possible.

Bike and walk: The university has good access for cyclists and walkers via cycle paths and footpaths. The best example is the cycle/footpath which runs parallel to the Worcester and Birmingham canal from Birmingham city centre in the north to Bourneville, Longbridge and Redditch in the south.
