Our facilities and campus

Parkside Building

The Parkside Building is part of our new multi-million pound City Centre Campus development in the heart of Birmingham’s Eastside.

Home to Birmingham School of Architecture and Design, the School of Fashion and Textiles, and the School of Visual Communication, the five-floor site is packed with studios and social ‘collision spaces.’ 


Our commitment

We are committed to showcasing the best student concepts and collections in exhibitions and on catwalks such as Graduate Fashion Week and New Designers.
