University of Birmingham
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 188 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Perfect location very close to Birmingham's city centre. I stayed in student accommodation first year and it was very good. However, I decided to move home second and third year as the student housing is in Selly Oak, which is quite an unsafe area with high crime rate."
