Congratulations on choosing the University of Central England in Birmingham as the place to carry out your studies.
Birmingham is an exciting city to live and study in and one which has rightly achieved considerable status. You will find here a wide range of cultural activities, a thriving nightlife and many local places of interest.
We are very aware at UCE Birmingham of the many issues facing students embarking on a university course, and where you are going to live is one of those important issues. I hope that this website assists you in acquiring the information you need about our range of accommodation.
Our portfolio is managed by one department, and we are therefore able to provide a comprehensive and responsive service. Our commitment to quality is reflected in our 'Investor In People' status.
We are very proud of the varied accommodation we have to offer, which includes traditional Halls of Residence, en-suite rooms and accommodation set in attractive grounds. We have rooms designated for students with special needs, including facilities for carers, and a number of flats for postgraduates and students with small families.
In addition to details about each type of accommodation, you will find an Application Form which you can complete via this website.
Applicants for accommodation are guaranteed a room in halls of residence for their first year of study providing they have accepted an offer on a full time course at UCE Birmingham, do not live in Birmingham and apply by the start of the Autumn Term. Applicants who do live in Birmingham and meet the above criteria will be made an offer of accommodation subject to availability.
It is very important in either case that you complete and submit your Application Form without delay. Students who do not wish to live in Halls of Residence may wish to consider accommodation in the private sector. Details can be found via a link to the private sector on this website, where you can find details of accommodation available to rent..
