The University

The University of Birmingham, set in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom, is a public research university with a great reputation for academic excellence.

Studying at this amazing University while living at our University of Birmingham accommodation is surely one of the soundest decisions you can make for your future. Here’s just a few reasons why:

The University of Birmingham forms part of the prestigious Russell Group, which measures university performance based on academic achievement and reputation for excellence.

As well as that, The University of Birmingham is a founding member of Universitas 21, a global network of 27 research-led universities across 17 countries.

This prestigious academic institution was founded way back in 1900, and was so cutting edge at the time that it quickly became the prototype and representative of a new model for Higher Education.

The University, which is located close to our uni accommodation, was pioneering as England’s first civic university. Not only that, but it was the original redbrick university to receive its own royal charter.

Nowadays The University of Birmingham continues to trailblaze and innovate in the educational field. It continues to be a leading international academic institution, gaining momentum both locally and internationally.

The University of Birmingham welcomes over 35,000 students from 150 countries to study a multitude of different disciplines as varied as you can imagine.

You can find many of those international students in our University of Birmingham accommodation, making it easy for you to make friends from all over the world. You might even pick up a new language or a travel buddy – exciting stuff!

It’s not only international students that are attracted to this world-class learning experience. The University of Birmingham serves as a teaching platform for internationally-renowned academic experts in various fields.

An astonishing 34% of teaching staff at this diverse university are overseas nationals, hailing from a number of different countries. This fact only serves to foster a healthy, open-minded learning environment, mixing cultures in a colourful international tapestry. The blend of national and international students and teaching staff helps to imbibe students with a wider perspective which in turn influences their work and research, another reason why The University of Birmingham is leading the way in so many senses.

The University of Birmingham is not only cosmopolitan, but is also firmly dedicated to expansion.

The University opened a campus in Dubai in 2018, becoming the first university in the global top 100 and member of the Russell Group University to establish a campus there.

The Dubai campus provides an exciting academic setting and dedicated uni accommodation, creating a home from home for up to 2,900 students.

An excellent reputation

The University of Birmingham has a sterling academic reputation, making it an excellent choice for any prospective student.

The proof of this is that the University of Birmingham ranks among the top 50 universities across several disciplines in the QS World University Rankings by Subject.

What’s more, it also ranks 90th in the QS World University Rankings, with a top 100 position amongst universities globally.

Is it any wonder, then, that we decided to set up University of Birmingham accommodation for students? We know that Birmingham Uni is top notch and it is logical that top notch students deserve top notch accommodation.

The great reputation of the University attracts students from all over the world, including participants in the Erasmus programme. The University of Birmingham is one of the UK’s major participants in the Erasmus programme, which encourages student exchanges.

Our facilities at our University of Birmingham accommodation serve many Erasmus students, making our residences the perfect place to learn about other cultures, make new friends, and even make the ideal base from which to share travelling experiences together.

As if all of that were not enough, the University of Birmingham is also renowned for producing highly employable and successful graduates.
