Birmingham's new sports centre is planned to sit on the corner of Bristol Road and Edgbaston Park Road. It will be a large multi-sport facility for students, staff and the local community, and will include the city’s first 50-metre swimming pool. A new library will provide improved opportunities for community access to the vast University collections, and cultural heritage. The Student Services Hub will see part of the interior of the main Aston Webb Building remodelled to house a number of different services including employability, careers and a 400-seat lecture theatre.
The University is located five minutes from the heart of the city of Birmingham, a city with a heritage of multiculturalism and non-conformism, with campuses in the Edgbaston and Selly Oak areas of the city of Birmingham.
Coming to Birmingham to study might be your first time living away from home. The student accommodation will allow you to enjoy your new-found independence in safe, welcoming and sociable surroundings. In each village there is accommodation offering a self-catered option. At the Vale students are also able to take advantage of the Meal Plan. If you opt for Meal Plan accommodation, you will have a weekly allowance for meals during term time at any of the Universities catering outlets.
