Current Accommodation Information

Applications for accommodation for academic year 2014/15

Within the Freshers' Guarantee Scheme

Applications made under the Freshers’ Guarantee Scheme for Home/EU students for academic year 2014/15 are now closed. If you have made an application within this scheme, and hold a conditional offer from the University of Birmingham, you will be sent an offer of accommodation within 14 working days after A Levels results day (14th August 2014).

If you hold an unconditional offer from the University of Birmingham, you will be sent an offer of accommodation in July/early August.

Outside of the Freshers' Guarantee Scheme

If you hold the University of Birmingham as an insurance offer, apply through Clearing, or have not yet applied for accommodation, due to heavy over-subscription we strongly advise you to apply for our 3rd party accommodation at Liberty Gardens, Liberty Court, Liberty Close or Victoria Hall. Applications are made online. You will need your Birmingham Student ID number (included in your offer letter) to log in to the site. Please ensure you apply for the correct year and student type to ensure your application is processed correctly.

Returners

We are now fully booked for students returning to halls of residence. Only those in exceptional circumstances will now be considered for returner applications.

Presessional students

Accommodation will soon be allocated for those on 10 week presessional courses. You should hear back about your accommodation no later than two weeks before your expected arrival. If you haven’t received an offer two weeks before you’re due to arrive, then please contact us.

Students on the 6 week and 4 week presessional courses can now apply online for accommodation. You should also hear back about your accommodation no later than two weeks before your expected arrival.

Current accommodation availability

Students requiring accommodation immediately

Any 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.
