Public transport and how to get to Newman University

Published by Newman University on

Globe at front of campus
There are many different ways to get to Newman University and our initiative to become a greener campus encourages and places importance on using public transport wherever possible. This post will aim to break down travelling to Newman using the following methods as I believe they are the most efficient and effective:
  • Bus
  • Train
  • Car

Travelling to Newman by bus

At Newman University, we are very lucky to have bus stops right at the front of the campus which allow you to get to a number of locations:

23 (National Express)

Bartley Green — Woodgate — Harborne —- Five Ways —- City Centre

X21 (National Express)

Bartley Green — Weoley Castle — Selly Oak — QE Hospital/ University Station — City Centre

X22 (National Express)

Woodgate — Bartley Green — Quinton Road — QE Hospital/ University Station — City Centre

18 (National Express)

Bartley Green — Bangham Pit — Northfield — Cotteridge — Yardley Wood

002 (Diamond)

Weoley Castle — Bartley Green — Halesowen — Cradley Heath —- Merry Hill

Travelling to Newman by train

There are a number of train stations within a 3 mile radius of the university

If arriving at Birmingham New Street, bus stops for the 23 and the X21 and X22 (on the opposite side by Boots Bullring) are outside the station

The X21 and X22 buses also go by University station (located on the UOB campus) which also allows easy access to the university by train.

The 18 bus takes you directly from the Kings Norton Station to the university too, so it is accessible from all sides of the city.

Travelling to Newman by car

If using a Sat Nav, enter the postcode B32 3NU and this will direct you to the Main Car Park on campus. The visitors car park is accessed through the Student Car Park on Genners Lane.

If approaching the university from Adams Hill, continue past Jiggins Lane and the shops on the left and turn onto the Student Car Park for the Main Entrance and Visitor Car Park.
