About The University of Birmingham

The 8th Institutional Web Management Workshop will be held at the University of Birmingham on 27-29th July 2004.

The main University campus at Edgbaston is outstanding among UK universities. It is spacious and attractive with lawns, trees, a lake and pleasant spaces between the different buildings. It was one of the first 'redbrick' universities and is said to be the origin of the term. The buildings, which reflect changing architectural styles through the twentieth century, are grouped around the central Chancellor's Court with the 100-metre (327ft 6in) high Chamberlain clock tower which honours the University's first Chancellor, Joseph Chamberlain. The spectacular Great Hall and Aston Webb Crescent are buildings of self-confidence and majesty.
