How to find us

The Great Hall can be found at: University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT.

On arrival at the University of Birmingham campus, make your way towards the clock tower, affectionately known as ‘Old Joe’, which you can easily see from most locations on campus.

When you are at the foot of the clock tower, you will have reached the Aston Webb semicircle of red-brick buildings. The Great Hall is through the large wooden doors beneath the central dome.
