City South Campus

City South Campus in Edgbaston, to the south of the City Centre, is home to our health and social care courses. Our students learn in the most realistic settings – from a mock operating theatre and hospital wards to a fully equipped birthing room and virtual radiotherapy suite.


Following a £30 million refurbishment, the Seacole Building was opened in 2006, and won a Built in Quality award from Birmingham City Council in 2007.

In September 2011, the completion of a £2 million teaching wing meant all health and social care students became based at City South Campus.

Campus Accessibility

All areas of Seacole building which require student access (teaching rooms, library and café facilities) are accessible to wheelchair users. Bevan House and the ground floor of Ravensbury House are also accessible.

The campus is accessible for most people; however, we recognise that individuals can experience a wide variety of difficulties. To find out more about this site’s accessibility in relation to your specific difficulties, please contact the Disability Support Team.

Visitors with hearing loss

If you are visiting the University and have hearing loss which means that you may have difficulty hearing the fire alarm in the event of an emergency evacuation, please request a Deaf Alerter pager from the main reception of the campus you are visiting. You will be able to keep this pager with you for the duration of your visit to alert you if the fire alarm goes off.

Car Parking

Very limited student car parking is available at the rear of the main campus building (accessed via Westbourne Road) for a charge of £2 per day. Free disabled parking is also available. It is not recommended that you park on the roads around the campus as any spaces are limited to 1 hour and there is a zero tolerance policy operated by the City Council traffic wardens who continuously patrol the area.

As car parking at City South Campus is so limited we strongly recommend that you use alternative methods of transport. The campus is well served by public transport. The Traveline West Midlands website will help you identify the most straightforward public transport from your home. You will need to enter your home postcode and the campus postcode, which is B15 3TN. This will take you to the front of Seacole Building on Westbourne Road. As there is a one-way system on the roads immediately around the campus, you may find it easier to use the bus stop on Harborne Road, which can be accessed by a footpath between numbers 44 and 46. If this is the case the postcode you will need to use is B15 3HE.
