Selly Oak Student Studios – Available in July 2019
HMO style properties are the accommodation of choice for students who are looking to study and relax independently in the privacy of their own space. This recently refurbished studio is on the ground floor of the building. On entering the studio you will find a comfy double bed and wardrobe in one area, and a desk for work to the other side. A door from the studio leads to a modern private shower room with a toilet, and there is also a kitchenette in the studio fully kitted out with a sink, fridge/freezer, hob, microwave/oven and washer/dryer.
Rent is inclusive of utility bills and internet, TV also supplied at no extra cost. Unihousing clean and maintain the communal areas of the property, like the hall, stairs and landing.
Students living here benefit from two large supermarkets in the vicinity - an ALDI and Sainsburys - offering plenty of choice for their food and everyday needs on a budget, whilst for other essentials a nearby Superdrug might be just what you need. For days when you want to relax and eat out, there’s a Nando’s very close – or, for a greater variety of tastes, try the Yakinori or Dilshad Indian takeaway. The S’Oak is another local option: a modern pub, ideal for spending time with friends over a drink or some food.
Selly Oak, where this studio is located, has been a popular student hub for a number of years. In this area a student can find everything they could need: shops, takeaways and an off-licence provide for most of the essentials. Restaurants, pubs and bars offer opportunities to meet with friends and catch up after a long day, and a couple of parks and the newly built UoB Gym and pool will satisfy most students’ needs for exercise.
Whilst Selly Oak contains everything needed for an amazing student life, most students will also want to explore the local area and enjoy the greater city’s culture. This is easily done from here, with a local bus service in to the centre and other areas of the city, and a railway station in Selly Oak also providing easy access to the heart of the city. Neither bus nor train are expensive, with a single rail ticket to Birmingham city centre costing around £2.60 and an off-peak day return available for £2.70 (check latest prices online – networkwestmidlands.com is a useful resource for buses, trains and the metro in the city). With Birmingham’s position at the heart of the country, it is ideal for getting further afield: Birmingham New Street station, Digbeth Coach station and Birmingham International Airport are all easily accessible using the public transport options in Selly Oak, and open up a huge range of options for further travel.
Birmingham city is also a great place to live, whatever your interests. Cadbury World and the Sea Life Centre are popular attractions and the city centre has a very lively night-life for those who want more than Selly Oak offers. The shopping in the heart of Birmingham is large and varied, with the Bullring and Grand Central being particularly popular shopping centres, and there are several theatres and halls for shows – some like the NEC and Birmingham Arena frequently hosting major exhibitions and sporting events.
