City Campus

If you are not a fan of early mornings you will be pleased to hear that City Campus accommodation is just a short walk from the Millennium City Building, where most of your lectures will be.

More reasons to choose City Campus accommodation:

  • Choose from en-suite or shared bathroom – depending on your budget.
  • Free shuttle bus if you need to get to the Walsall or Telford campus.
  • Right next to a big 24 hour Asda – always a bonus.
  • 15 minutes from the city centre, get your fill of shopping, pubs, clubs or swan around the art gallery.
  • Easy access to Birmingham – about a 20 minute train journey.
  • There is a block just for mature students who are starting to value sleep and want a friendly environment to study and socialise.
  • Some single sex flats available.
  • Free sports membership; so burn off those Freshers’ week calories in the gym or on the pitch – with markings for football, volleyball, netball and basketball.
