The Cross-City Line was an immediate hit with passengers with services quickly increased  and with later extensions to the route and electrification in 1993, University is the second busiest station on the line after New Street with around 3 million passengers a year. The station has 2 corrugated metal canopies over part of the 2 platforms. Access is via a stairway from the ticket hall at road level, the line and platforms being in a cutting.
As well as London Midland Cross-City Line services other London Midland services also stop here to/from Hereford and Worcester as do some South-West bound Cross City services.
