Aston University campus is just over the road, Birmingham City University is a 15-minute walk, and University College Birmingham is a 20-minute walk, but you’re welcome to come and live here wherever you’re studying in the city!

Student Life in Birmingham
Birmingham offers plenty of fun for students– you’d expect nothing less from England’s second-largest city! Whatever you’re into, you’ll be able to find something to enjoy here.
If live music’s your thing, there’s the Genting Arena and the Barclaycard Arena for big pop and rock concerts, then the O2 Academy and the O2 Institute (AKA Digbeth Institute) for smaller indie/alternative gigs.
For general nightlife, there are literally hundreds of places for you across the city. From student-friendly bars and clubs to historic pubs and hip real-ale places. If you want to spend a night booze-free, there are cinemas, theatres, comedy clubs and more!
In terms of shopping, you’re spoilt for choice. For all the high-street names you’d expect to see anywhere, the huge Bullring Shopping Centre is a safe bet – it’s right next to Birmingham New Street train station and only a short walk from Bentley House.
Birmingham really knows how to spoil you. Being such a large and vibrant city, there are great shops, restaurants and cafes all over the place. As for buying food, you’ve got plenty of handy Tesco Express stores dotted about, and for your weekly shop there’s an Aldi 15 minutes away.
