Liberty Close 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 Close is located towards the city centre and has access to prime transport links to the University.

Rooms in these residences form part of our 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.

James Robertson, former Vice President 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.

The University benefits from excellent public transport links that provide access to numerous destinations across the UK. For more information about public transport in Birmingham view our website.
