The Penworks, and so does the camera

We’re pleased to share the results of our recent photoshoot at The Penworks; and we’re really chuffed with the shots as they really do capture the quality of our latest development of student accommodation in Birmingham.

The Penworks opens later this year, in time for the 2013/14 academic year and will offer 282 ensuite rooms across a mixture of shared apartments and individual studio rooms.

Rooms are available to book online now, and prices and availability are available on our main website.


The Penworks – Our Latest Student Rooms Development in Birmingham

Work has begun on our latest student rooms development in Birmingham, The Penworks.

Open in time for the start of the 2013/14 academic year, The Penworks will offer 282 en-suite bedrooms ranging from individual studio rooms to shared clusters of 4 to 6 bedroom apartments.

All rooms at The Penworks student housing have en-suite bathrooms, and will be available as individual studios or in clusters of 4 to 6 bedroom flats.

The Penworks is located close to our existing Studios 51 accommodation,  extremely close to Aston University and ideal for many of the other higher education facilities in the Birmingham area.

More details will be available on our website and on this blog through the following months.

#51Reasons – The Final Round Up

So the final week of our #51reasons started less with a bang and more with a very tenuous reason (we were struggling at the end!) but what we believe to be a nice little quirk to our service…

We sign for all  your parcels and keep them in the office for you – how’s that for customer service? And a lot of our tenants like the fact that with us you get a real key rather than a plastic swipe card – it feels more like a proper home to them so it made it in to the list at reason number 49. And to add to our slightly obscure reasons to live at Studios 51, reason number 48 tells you that you can live in an old pen factory. The building is actually over a hundred years old and used to make pens with many of the period features of the building still evident.

Back to the more concrete reasons to live here, we do believe we provide a good service and we often have many people who re-book with us – if you do this there are offers and discounts to help out. As a company we also aim to listen to the concerns of our tenants and their families and care for our tenants.

While we did have some odd reasons in the last week we saved two of the best for last as well. Studios 51 is a quiet halls of residence ideal for Postgraduates and later year students looking to get their heads down and study and is provided with absolutely no hidden costs.

If you’ve been following the campaign, thank you! Maybe if you’d like to add some of your own reasons you could post them on Facebook, here on the blog or tweet them to us. Don’t forget you can still book for 2012/13 academic year. Call us on 0121 333 5792, visit us in the office or send us a message.
