Each studio is built to specifications which are chosen to provide the best possible experience for a student attending university. We believe that it is important for students to live in an environment which provides relaxation and comfort, so that they can perform their best during studies. The ideal student accommodation has to be coupled with the ideal student area. Selly Oak is the student hub of Birmingham, and continues to develop every year.

Finally, a bedroom and fitted shower room complete this comfortable yet stylish accommodation.

This modern kitchen is ideal for tenants, providing a nice space to prepare and cook meals.

As part of your studio, a desk and chair are provided. This space is designed to help you with your studies, but can also be used to unwind after a busy day of lectures.
