A new four-star hotel and conference centre is set to open Autumn 2018 on The University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston campus.
The University of Birmingham Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre, which will include 185 bedrooms and will be open to all visitors to the University and city, is being built near to the University’s existing conference facilities off Edgbaston Park Road.
Recently appointed Hotel General Manager Richard Metcalfe said: “You couldn’t dream of a better location. Birmingham is already a brilliant destination; vibrant culture, big sporting venues, great for families – and of course an incredible academic reputation.
“This multi-million pound investment means conference and visitor accommodation that really matches up to the prestige and personality of a world-class university.”
The University often hold academic conferences, however these are genuinely held elsewhere in the city. The new facility will enable future conferences to be held on campus in the heart of the research-led institution.
The development will sit alongside a newly developed Green Heart, opening in 2019, and the new Sport and Fitness Club, which houses the city’s first 50m pool.
Conference facilities will be available in the new centre and both Hornton Grange and Garth House, depending on requirements and size. Flexible accommodation means groups of between 12 and 250 will be able to be accommodated.
