Why Choose Student Housing in Selly Oak?

When at university, it’s important to know how to live independently and what is available around you to meet your needs. Selly oak is known as the student village, as it meets student requirements completely with everything at your fingertips. By having everything within walking distance, not only will you be able to sleep in more and save money on travel costs, but your daily journeys will be much more environmentally friendly too.

Utility Bills Are Included in The Price of Rent

The cost-of-living crisis is making it harder for young people to live their everyday lives, with an increase in gas and electricity prices causing students to go cold this winter. However, here at Unihousing many of our property’s gas and utilities are inclusive of the rent. This means that no matter how much prices increase elsewhere, the price of rent for your property will stay the same.


Plenty of Shops to Choose From

One of the biggest challenges when living independently is shopping for yourself. Selly Oak has some of the best stores for your needs all in one place in the Selly Oak Retail Park. This includes large retails shops, the popular Nando’s restaurant and a recently constructed McDonald’s too.

According to Love Your Postcode, Selly Oak is ‘Birmingham's top buy to let property hotspots’. This is due to the amount of development within the city and the huge amount of all kinds of stores meaning you have everything in one place.
