Student Halls

Birmingham City University (BCU) has several halls of residence offering a range of on-campus and inner-city living. Every option features desirable, modern facilities such as en-suite bathrooms and on-site gyms, ensuring your comfort while you study.

Living in student halls of residence is a great way to meet new people and make friends, as you will be sharing a kitchen and living area with 4-7 fellow students.
