Our main site on Summer Row is the hub of University life and the majority of undergraduate degree courses are taught here and at the newly-opened McIntyre House.

Summer Row is conveniently located by the bustling Colmore business district, which is abuzz with top restaurants, trendy bars and cool cafés, while you can see the spectacular Library of Birmingham from the front of the campus.

The building, opened in 1968, is home to our acclaimed industry-standard kitchen facilities and our £2 million Food Science and Innovation Suite featuring the latest food testing and diagnostic technology.

Summer Row also features our brand new Aviation and Tourism Suite, offering stunning simulation facilities including a mock plane cabin, as well as our professional Aspire Aesthetics clinic for those training on our Aesthetic Practitioner courses.

Summer Row has a rooftop café while there is also a large cafeteria, including a salad bar, situated on the fifth floor. The popular Cakes & Bakes shop, selling delicious bakery products and chocolates made by our students, is on the ground floor. 

University College Birmingham’s award-winning training restaurants, the Atrium and the Brasserie, which have been acclaimed by the AA, are at Summer Row. The restaurants offer fine dining and casual modern British and European cooking at lunchtime and dinner, and they are the backdrop for special theme dinners arranged by students.
