About us

Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre is the University of Birmingham’s hotel, and is part of the University of Birmingham Group. It’s a Preferred Hotel, and is also a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide®.

The University of Birmingham is a World Top 100 institution. It was founded in 1900 by Joseph Chamberlain as the UK’s first civic university, welcoming students from all social and religious backgrounds. The hotel allows the University to host major international conferences across a range of disciplines, as well as providing a convenient place to stay and dine for leisure travellers and families of students.

Opened in 2018, Edgbaston Park Hotel features a contemporary building housing 172 bedrooms, restaurant, bar and a variety of meeting facilities, all in a peaceful leafy spot on campus.

Two historic buildings which were bequeathed to the University are also part of the hotel, and have been tastefully restored: Hornton Grange, a 1928 redbrick former family home; and Garth House, a Grade II-listed Arts and Crafts building built in 1900.

The intellectual, scientific and cultural achievements of the University of Birmingham are honoured in the hotel’s room names, from ground-breaking obstetrician Dame Hilda Lloyd to pioneering prison reformer Margery Fry. The 1900 restaurant is named for the University’s founding date.
