Pritchatts Park Village is located in Edgbaston and is a short walk of around 10 minutes from the main campus and approximately 3km from Birmingham city centre. It is also a short distance from the suburb of Harborne where you will find a variety of shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.
The village accommodates more than 700 students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, from all over the world and is home to Pritchatts House our Global Community, a new project which we are launching for September 2015. Postgraduates are housed in the Spinney or Pritchatts House Global Community (for shared facilities) and Pritchatts Road houses (for studios). The site also has a social centre with a bar, which creates a hub of activity for residents. All of the rooms here are self-catered.
The social centre is located in the heart of the village. It offers residents a chance to relax and socialise in a lively, friendly atmosphere. The centre provides a large lounge with large screen television with Sky, bar, games facilities, vending area (Snack Shack), quiet study zone, ATM machine as well as the main reception point for the village.
