Current Accommodation Information

This page was last updated 22nd August 2014.

Below is the current accommodation availability. If you have any queries or require accommodation please contact us.

Postgraduates inside the guarantee scheme who have yet to hear about an offer of accommodation:

If you are a postgraduate student who has had your place firmly accepted by the University,  submitted an accommodation application no later than 31st July 2014 and are an international student, then you are within our accommodation guarantee scheme and are guaranteed accommodation this September. If you are yet to hear from us about an offer of accommodation, please be patient. We appreciate that this can be an anxious time, especially if you are new to Birmingham and unfamiliar with the area, however we are currently sending out accommodation offers and will be in touch shortly. At this moment we cannot speed up the process and appreciate your patience.

Postgraduates outside the guarantee scheme:

If you have applied after the deadline of 31st July and/or a UK or EU Postgraduate student then unfortunately we cannot guarantee you accommodation. All applications are treated on a first come first serve basis and will be reviewed after all those within the guarantee scheme are allocated. If we are unable to allocate you we will offer support and assist you in the search for accommodation in the private sector.  

The private sector offers a range of accommodation from studio apartments, shared houses and purpose built student accommodation, close to the main Edgbaston campus.  If it is likely that we will not be able to accommodate you within university owned accommodation then we will be in touch with further information on how to access this information. We appreciate your patience and at this stage are unable to confirm if this will be the case as yet.

Pre-sessional students

Accommodation will soon be allocated for those on 4 week presessional courses. All presessional students that have applied should hear back about their accommodation by Friday 15th August 2014. If you have applied and haven’t received an offer by this date then please contact us.

Apply online for accommodation if you have not already done so.

Students requiring accommodation immediately

We currently have extremely limited availability in University accommodation. If you are requiring accommodation please contact us to discuss.

Transfer requests

Students wishing to transfer accommodation can apply to do so by visiting Living. All requests received to date which have not yet been processed are being constantly reviewed and where transfers are possible, students will be contacted directly.

Short term lettings

If you’re looking for accommodation in the short term, anything from between 3 days to 6 months, we may be able to assist.

We have a number of ensuite rooms and modern self contained studio apartments all within easy walking distance of the University Campus and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Depending on availability, these may be immediately available for short term lettings.

If you are interested in booking a room for a short term let, please contact us.
