Our Place

Delivering excellence in a first-class environment is key to everything we do at Solihull College & University Centre. A £31 million redevelopment scheme has transformed our Blossomfield Campus into one of the UK’s most exciting and modern conference and training facilities, set in landscaped surroundings.

We work hard to develop new and existing relationships with other organisations, and to raise our own performance and aspirations in every respect.

These ongoing efforts have not gone unrewarded. We became the first college to win a Best Business Award, which aims to highlight excellence in public and private sectors across the nation. We have also achieved the Training Quality Standard in recognition of our commitment to delivering quality training and development solutions for employers; an achievement which many organisations aspire to and of which we are justifiably proud.

A Great Place to Meet

When it’s time to start planning your next conference or training session, look no further than Solihull College’s Business Centre. Set in a superb location, in the centre of Solihull, The Business Centre is a cutting-edge facility, spread over 2 floors offering an array of spacious rooms with its own private reception. The outstanding facilities will ensure that your time spent with us is both relaxed and enjoyable.

Perfect Location

Our convenient location, extensive free parking and leafy surroundings make The Business Centre the perfect choice. Ideally situated in the heart of the West Midlands, Solihull is a picturesque town, surrounded by acres of parks and woodland and located just 20 minutes from Birmingham City Centre.

The Blossomfield Campus is easily accessible by road, rail or air. We are a short walk away from Solihull Train Station and a 15-minute drive from Birmingham International Airport. We are located just 10 minutes from Junction 4 of the M42, making your journey to us hassle free and providing links to destinations such as Warwick, Coventry, Oxford and the rest of the motorway network. A number of major routes also pass through Solihull, including the A41 Warwick Road, the A34 Stratford Road and the A45 Coventry Road.

The central location provides you with great access to a range of nearby hotels to suit every budget.

Outstanding Facilities

Designed to meet the requirements of even the most discerning event organiser, The Business Centre provides conference facilities within a specialist learning environment with open spaces fort collaboration and networking.

We have a room for every need, whether it’s a large conference, computer-based training or a small business meeting. The centre features a great mix of purpose-built rooms, the largest with a capacity of up to 170 delegates in a theatre-style layout, with medium-sized rooms available for breakout sessions. If you’re looking for a more intimate space, our smaller rooms are ideal for interviews or confidential meetings. Each of the conference suites are fully equipped with a range of audio-visual equipment, including: an interactive whiteboard, digital projector, wireless internet access and a flipchart with pens, paper and stand.
