Student apartments for rent in Birmingham

With so many students coming to Birmingham every year, there is a wide variety of student rental apartments to choose from. You can go for entire flats with multiple rooms to share with other students, or studio apartments.

Shared flats usually have individual rooms and common areas like a living room, kitchen, and sometimes the bathroom.

Studio apartments or one bedroom apartments, although a bit more expensive, give you the privacy of living alone or with a partner/friend, offering everything you need to live in a compact space (usually with just one bed).

Student rooms for rent in Birmingham

Student rooms are a budget-friendly option with plenty of choices in Birmingham. This involves renting a spare room in a shared flat, meaning you’ll live with other students without needing to find roommates yourself and you will only pay for your room.

Rooms in Birmingham can be part of shared flats or student residences. Residences often offer more amenities to their residents, which might reflect in a higher rental cost. Carefully check what each accommodation includes to find the ideal option for you.
