Birmingham is a bustling cosmopolitan city of almost one million people, and here at StuRents we aim to give you a comprehensive selection of the best student properties, regardless of your budget.
The oldest red brick university in the UK, the University of Birmingham has been providing first class education for over a century. It was named University of the Year 2014 in The Times Higher Education Awards, and consistently ranks in the top three of the British Universities and Colleges Sport League. In fact, its sports facilities are so impressive that the Jamaican track and field team for the 2012 London Olympics trained there.
Birmingham City University currently caters for around 22,000 students over eight campuses, which are currently undergoing a £260m investment programme. The university boasts historical strengths in the creative and the performing arts, and recently opened a state-of-the-art £62m building for design and media students in 2013. The Birmingham Government School of Design was also the first college of design outside of London, opened in 1843.
After beginning life as Birmingham Municipal Technical School in 1956, Aston University was officially formed in 1966 and is ranked as one of the world's best new universities (after being ranked as the 42nd best university in the world under 50 years old). It has one of the highest graduate employment rates in the UK and more than 70% of Aston students take a placement year after the university pioneered the concept in the 60s.
Situated in Bartley Green (about 8 miles south-west of the city centre) Newman University was created in 1968 as the Newman College of Higher Education. However, it only became a full university in 2013.
We currently list over 2000 properties across Birmingham, but our most popular areas include the Selly Oak student quarter just south of the University of Birmingham campus, and around Perry Hall Park in the north for students at Birmingham City University. However, we also have various listings closer to the centre, for those who want to make the most of everything the city has to offer.
