Liberty Gardens Birmingham

Every year we enter into agreements with private providers so that we can accommodate all of the students within our Freshers' Guarantee Scheme. Liberty Gardens is located towards the city centre and provides an affordable living option to first year undergraduates.

Rooms in these residences form part of the Guarantee 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. Students also have access dedicated services such as Residents' Associations and the Student Mentor Scheme.


Liberty Gardens is located next to a wide range of local amenities. Less than 15 minutes’ walk from the residence you’ll conveniently find a Tesco express, whilst there is also a large Morrisons supermarket on Hagley Road.

If you're looking for some retail therapy you can grab a taxi or take a 20 minute walk to The Bullring Shopping Centre, which offers a selection of over 160 stores. Alternatively, you can also find your favourite brands and shops in The Mailbox shopping centre, home to well-known fashion retailers such as Harvey Nichols.

If the gym is your thing, there are numerous gyms near Liberty Gardens. Pure Gym is only 15 minutes from the residence and its doors are open 24/7. They offer a good range of classes and competitive student rates for you to take advantage of. There's also the option of joining free weekly park runs from Cannon Hill Park, which is just a 30 minute walk away from your doorstep.

Finally, you'll find that all of your utilities are included in your accommodation fees which makes budgeting that little bit easier. There are also laundry facilities, a large common room area and an on site Residence Team dedicated to supporting you during your stay at Liberty Gardens. The residences are also monitored by CCTV 24/7 meaning that you can feel comfortable and safe during your stay there.
