In order to fulfill the Fresher’s Guarantee Scheme, the University maintains agreements with local private providers that meet our quality standards. Rooms in these residences form part of the Scheme and students may be allocated these in their first year. You will be placed with other University of Birmingham students, in the same way as you would be in University-owned accommodation.
James Robertson, former Vice President of Housing and Community for the Guild of Students lived at Liberty Close, and says:
When living in Liberty Close you are amongst a number of students living and working together, and the gated community it has generates a really tight bond between residents. Many of the students I lived with in my first year are still close friends today. It's location is great - you are within walking distance of all your city centre attractions, shops and clubbing areas. However, if walking is not your thing, Five Ways train station is a 5 minute walk away and will get you to campus or the city centre in a matter of minutes.
