Renting Accommodation Privately

Whether you are looking for, moving into, living in, or moving out of a house in the private sector, we want to inform, support, and empower you to make the best decisions every step of the way.

What's on this week?

Rent Right is a joint initiative between the University and the Guild of Students to give the best housing advice to students during their time at Birmingham. Together, we have created step-by-step guides to help you make the transition into the private housing sector as easily as possible.



Are you looking to get your contract checked? You do not need to book an appointment, just drop in - and if you're not sure where to go, just get in touch and we'll be able to help! If no slots are available on your chosen day, please get in touch with Guild Advice who also check contracts.

Community Living is here to facilitate and encourage community cohesion. Our vision is for Selly Oak to be a thriving community in which local residents, businesses, and students, flourish and live well, and for the University of Birmingham to take its place within this thriving community in collaboration with all those who live and work in the area.
