Where to stay
Battery Park, Oak Brook Park and Athena Studios are our University of Birmingham accommodation locations closest to the main and south campus. This is great if you want to be close to your library and lecture halls, helping you make it in for early starts or late study sessions. The area itself is one of the most beautiful you’ll find in Birmingham, home to a variety of parks where you can escape the noise of the city, meet with friends or get out for a run. For those into their sports and fitness, you’ll also be walking distance from a popular golf course and Edgbaston Stadium, which regularly hosts Warwickshire and England Cricket teams.
Lakeside and Staniforth House are also centrally located, sitting north-west of the city centre. From here, you’ll have access to all of Birmingham’s best amenities, bars and restaurants. In the city centre, you’ll find The Botanist, The Ivy, Tattu and more incredible venues to meet with friends for incredible food and a cocktail. You’ll also be right next door to Birmingham New Street station, ideal if you’re taking a trip home for the weekend. All our Birmingham uni accommodation offer great links around the city. If you choose to live centrally, there are regular buses to the University of Birmingham’s main and south campuses.
