Birmingham City University Edgbaston
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. Our City South Campus consists of three buildings, Seacole Building, Bevan House and Ravensbury House all within close proximity of each other.
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.

The creation of our new suite of courses in sport and life sciences is one of the most exciting developments at Birmingham City University in recent years.
The £41 million expansion of the University’s City South Campus in Edgbaston will provide specialist laboratories and teaching spaces for the new courses.
It will also provide a new home for the School of Education, supporting the development of the next generation of school teachers.
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.
