The University is located in the pleasant residential suburb of Edgbaston, only 5 kilometres from the city centre. Birmingham is a campus University with practically all its academic buildings and other facilities on a single parkland site. The campus is spacious and attractive with lawns, trees and a lake. University residential accommodation for students is plentiful and accessible. The architectural style of the campus is varied. Included are the grand traditional redbrick buildings of Chancellor's Court, with the domes of the Great Hall and the striking Joseph Chamberlain clock tower, named in memory of the University's founder and first Chancellor.

In addition to the academic buildings the campus contains several restaurants, travel agencies, banks, supermarkets, a bookshop and a stationery shop. The Barber Institute houses a concert hall and has an internationally famous collection of paintings and other works of art.
