Further information about travelling to the University can be found below:


The campus has its own train station, ‘University’, with trains going to and from Birmingham New St in the city centre around every 10 minutes. Going from the city, take a train towards Longbridge or Redditch. University is two stops, approximately an 8-minutes journey, and should cost no more than £2.90 for a return ticket (no more than £2.30 with a railcard).


The nearest bus stop to the campus which serves buses to and from the city centre to the University Campus is that at the junction of Bristol Road and Edgbaston Park Road (the South Gate of the University) – near the Orange Zone on the campus map. Take the no. 61 or 63 from stop NS3 (on St. Martins Queensway, near New Street station and the Bullring shopping centre). Services 98 or X64 will also take you to the North Gate of the University, which is a short 5 minute walk to the Arts Building.

PARKING: We regret that due to major work taking place on campus at the moment, there is very limited parking nearby the University. For the latest up to date information, please visit: Disabled spaces are available next to the ERI Building on Pritchatts Road. Please contact to confirm with the University team if you will need one of these spaces.
