In a few words
"It is a traditional, red-brick campus university just outside of Birmingham city centre. The university is currently building a brand-new state of the art library and sports centre which are due to open in September. Other than the library there are many places around campus to study, and also to hang out with friends. The student accommodation has a very wide variety of options and prices to cater for everyone's needs. It's about a 15 minute walk from campus for the main village, but some of the accommodation is closer to campus too."
