University and private accommodation advice

Thursday 6 July 2017

From 1pm

University and private accommodation advice

This Postgraduate Virtual Open Day is designed to inform current postgraduate offer holders about available postgraduate accommodation at the University of Birmingham.

The University of Birmingham Accommodation Services offer dedicated postgraduate accommodation in both the Pritchatts Park and Selly Oak villages, as well as a range of studios and apartments across a number of locations including the new development Host Student Apartments.

Not all students choose to live in University accommodation. Living, in conjunction with Guild Lettings (The Guild of Students own lettings service) can help you find quality accommodation in the private sector. We can offer advice on costs, contract matters and suitable locations. Guild Lettings do not charge any fees to students and only work with landlords accredited with the Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme. We also host StudentPad, the University’s official property search engine to provide you with a list of properties available for rent.

Local areas surrounding the University include Selly Oak, Edgbaston, Harborne and Moseley. These are the main areas that students choose to live when moving to the private sector as they are close to the University of Birmingham and offer a wide range of attractive facilities for students. Find out more about renting accommodation privately.
