Birmingham City Council District Seven (District 7) is a legislative district of the City of Birmingham from which one representative on the Birmingham City Council and one member of the Birmingham Board of Education are elected. The city was divided into nine districts to preserve minority (white) representation following a court order issued in "Yarbrough et al v. City of Birmingham)" (1989). Prior to then councilors were elected at-large.

The district currently has 21,660 residents, and is represented by Councilor Jay Roberson.

District Seven covers southwestern Birmingham, including the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport. The district's borders were modified in 2013, ceding a strip of Central Park neighborhood along Bessemer Road to District 8. During the 2022 redistricting process, District 7 lost its portion of the Central Park neighborhood, but was able to pick up remaining sections of the Green Acres and Powderly neighborhoods.
