Walking from City Centre Railway Stations
It is easy to get to the Big Welcome Fair, no matter where in the city you are coming from. The City Centre Campus is a short 10-15 minute walk from Birmingham Moor Street Station, and a 20-25 minute walk from Birmingham New Street Station. Follow the walking signs to Birmingham City University and Millennium Point.
Nearby Bus Stops
Many bus services terminate within the city centre and most terminuses are within a 25 minute walk, many much closer. Moor Street Queensway and the Priory Queensway Interchanges are the closest to City Centre Campus. Bus number 14 stops on-campus on Cardigan Street, halfway between the Millennium Point and BCUSU Marquee on Gopsal Street. If it is your first time using a bus in Birmingham, we recommend paying with a contactless method – just tap your card on the reader every time you board a bus and you won’t be charged more than the maximum DaySaver rate, no matter how many times you travel. Don’t forget, we are running a free bus service from City South Campus!
Plenty of bicycle stands are available on campus. We would strongly recommend using two strong D-locks around the frame and wheels. Gated bicycle stands are located behind the Curzon Building on Gopsal Street but please be aware that Gopsal Street is closed to all vehicles on the day of the Big Welcome Fair. Student ID is required to access these particular stands.
There is also a West Midlands Cycle Hire dock on Cardigan Street, opposite Gopsal Street.
