For information on getting to the University of Birmingham campus, visit our Find us page.

On arrival at the University of Birmingham campus, you will need to make your way toward the Aston Webb semi-circle of traditional red brick buildings.

The easiest way to do this is to head 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 be able to see the Aston Webb semi-circle of red brick buildings directly in front of you, in which the venue is located. The Great Hall can be accessed via the large wooden doors.
