Dan is a student who commutes to Newman and wanted to share the different types of transport available for you.
Newman University is situated just outside of Birmingham City Centre and has many great bus and rail links in the wider surrounding areas, including Dudley and Wolverhampton.
The journey is generally reliable and doesn’t require much in walking distances or transferring bus services
Travelling by bus via the X22 from Birmingham City Centre takes around 30 minutes and passes through University of Birmingham station, so there is always the option of catching the train from New Street or University Station.
The 23 is also an option, although this service does take long, it is a more regular service-running every 3-6 minutes from Birmingham New Street. I live in Birmingham, two hours away from the University but the journey is generally reliable and doesn’t require much in walking distances or transferring bus services.
The X8 also runs through from Wolverhampton and Dudley and requires a short 10-15-minute walk to New Street Station to change services, you can then catch the X22 or 23. Both services run through Quinton and Harborne, which makes it easier to commute to Newman from the local area(s) as well as transferring from the 24 to the 23 towards the Copper Fox pub.
There are a greater number of bus services which you can alight outside of the University
Just across the road while on the way to the institution you can get off the bus right outside the University if getting off the 23. The X22 will drop you off outside The Cock Inn is just around the corner from ‘One Stop’ and is a five minute walk to the University reception area and main Atrium.
