Just a few minutes’ walk from Symphony Hall and adjacent to the Town Hall in the city centre, this purpose-built music school has some of the finest performing, teaching and music technology facilities in the country.
In 2017 Birmingham Conservatoire will be moving to a new building in our City Centre Campus.
These include six state-of-the-art recording and editing studios, over 50 dedicated practice rooms and a specialised library. Birmingham Conservatoire is one of only nine conservatoires in the UK and is rated the best in the UK outside London for its research.
Our premier music venue, the Adrian Boult Hall, underwent a £700,000 refurbishment in 2006. This 520-seat concert hall can accommodate a full symphony orchestra with chorus. Our 150-seat recital hall is the first concert venue of its kind in the UK to house a permanent, highly sophisticated multi-channel sound system allowing performers complete control over amplified sound in the entire performance space.
Better facilities for night owls
If you prefer to get your work done when the sun's gone down, you'll be pleased to know you can now get hot food while you hit the books. There is now a microwave installed next to the bar on the ground floor.

All areas of Birmingham Conservatoire are accessible to wheelchair users, apart from the Adrian Boult Hall, which has limited access for wheelchair users. Accessible toilet facilities are available.
Visually impaired students may find it hard to 'get their bearings' in this building at first, but we can overcome this by offering support with orientation.
There are a number of parking bays for blue badge holders and some longer-stay bays within public cark parks located close to the site.
The campus is accessible for most people; however, we recognise that individuals can experience a wide variety of difficulties. To find out more about this site’s accessibility in relation to your specific difficulties, please contact the Disability Support Team.
During the Paradise redevelopment scheme, disabled lift access to the Conservatoire is located in Fletcher’s Walk.
Visitors with hearing loss
If you are visiting the University and have hearing loss which means that you may have difficulty hearing the fire alarm in the event of an emergency evacuation, please request a Deaf Alerter pager from the main reception of the campus you are visiting. You will be able to keep this pager with you for the duration of your visit to alert you if the fire alarm goes off.
