Birmingham City University graduation ceremonies are held at the prestigious Symphony Hall, which is part of the International Convention Centre in Birmingham city centre.

Allow extra travel time due to Paradise Birmingham redevelopment

The redevelopment of the Paradise area of the city centre started in January. While the city council is committed to keeping Birmingham working throughout the redevelopment, there will be some disruption around the area, including near to Symphony Hall.

If you are travelling by car, use alternative routes if you can. If you still need to drive into the Paradise area, you should allow extra time for your journey because you may face delays and follow the diversions. There are also some changes to bus and pedestrian routes in the area.
