The City North Campus is home to our renowned Education and Teacher Training courses.

Located just three miles north of the city centre, it’s simple to get to and has on-site parking, and you’re only minutes from the Perry Barr train station and major bus routes.


The School of Education enjoys an enviable reputation, training more teachers than any other provider in the West Midlands. This means our campus includes fantastic facilities and resources, including a dedicated specialist library resource; a spacious, recently refurbished Refectory which includes a Costa Coffee outlet and a branch of our ‘ASK’ student enquiry service. It also benefits from 24-hour security on the site with lighting and CCTV monitored by our Security Control Room.

Better facilities for night owls

If you prefer to get your work done when the sun’s gone down, you’ll be pleased to know you can now get hot food while you hit the books. There is now a microwave installed next to the vending machines in Baker Cafe for your convenience.

You can also work out at the new £8.5 million Doug Ellis Sports Centre, which offers a fitness suite, sports hall, plenty of room for five-a-side football and cricket, and an all-weather pitch.

Our popular conferencing, sports and social facility, The Pavilion, is also just minutes away and provides an all-weather pitch as well as football and rugby pitches.

The Den

The Den now open to students

Looking for somewhere relaxing to spend time at City North? We’ve been busy transforming Leyland House in the City North Student Village into a great place for you to hang out.

This former office building on Oscott Road has been completely overhauled to include a cinema, pool table and study rooms, making it the perfect place for you to relax, hang out with friends and even make new ones.
