Known for:

Selly Oak is one of the most popular areas for students. It’s easy to see why with the University of Birmingham and plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars right on your doorstep. Selly Oak is only a few miles away from the City Centre and there’s a number or busses to take you there. As it’s a bit further out, the prices here are cheaper than Edgbaston, and you still get the bustling atmosphere.
