Wolverhampton City Centre is located approximately 17 miles to the north west of Birmingham City Centre.

The City Centre is well served by public transport and benefits from a mainline railway station, bus terminal and a tram service connecting the City with Birmingham and several other large centres along its route.

Wolverhampton is a sub-regional centre of the West Midlands with a population of 249,740 (2011 Census). It was awarded City status in 2000.
The University of Wolverhampton has its main Campus in the City Centre. This is broadly divided into two sites, City Campus North and South. The Randall Lines Building forms part of City Campus North also referred to as Molineux.


The property comprises a substantial detached building extending over six floors. It is of modern design comprising three interconnected rectangular buildings. The site is quite steeply slopped rising from Molineux Street to the rear.

There is lift access to all floors combined with staircase cores. The ground floor was previously partially used as a children’s nursery. The remaining ground floor and the rest of the building provide bedroom accommodation with shared facilities, 290 bedrooms in total.

We are advised that the building was constructed in the 1960’s.


The site lies within the jurisdiction of the City of Wolverhampton Council. The site was developed as student accommodation for the University but would be suitable for alternative uses or redevelopment subject to planning permission.
