Hidden Gems at BCU

From the shiny exteriors of our state-of-the-art buildings in Birmingham City Centre, you might not realise that some of these gems lie hidden away inside ready for you to uncover. Explore our campus from the comfort of your own sofa on Saturday 20 March at our Virtual Open Day and see how we've invested £340 million transforming our campus and facilities.


Parkside Building

We think it was Shakespeare who famously said ‘To frappé, or not to frappé?’, and with a Starbucks right on campus in the Parkside building, you can tell what our answer would be in this situ. The perfect pitstop to fuel yourself before lectures or working on your latest assignment.

The view from our balcony

Curzon Building

Thanks to being slapbang in the centre of Birmingham, you can get a pretty great view of our city from a lot of places on campus, but the balcony at the top of the Curzon and Parkside building are one of your best bets. Peep the Rotunda, world’s biggest Primark and Selfridges from there.
