Transforming our city
Birmingham City University has invested over £400 million to help revitalise the second city.
The University has transformed the landscape of Birmingham’s Eastside, breathing new life into a previously neglected area, which is now recognised as the city’s learning quarter and will become the home of the city’s HS2 terminus.
Based at the heart Birmingham, the University’s City Centre Campus has undergone a multi-million pound investment to reimagine the city’s skyline, create a welcoming area for visitors to the city and provide state-of-the-art facilities for students.
Four buildings have been developed over the last 10 years ensuring the University’s move to the centre of Birmingham invested in the city, bringing students, businesses and partners to the Campus.
With a history in the second city dating back over 178 years, the University’s investment is continuing with the redevelopment of a historic factory which had stood derelict for decades, which will reopen in 2022 as STEAMhouse – a collaborative hub for businesses, academics and artists.
