Local info

All of our properties are located within easy reach of the city centre so you're never far from excellent transport links, cafes, restaurants and shops.


The properties are well serviced by bus stops on the Queensway and Jennens Street.

Birmingham Moor Street Station is the closest to the city centre properties and is half a mile or a ten minute walk away.

Selly Oak Station is closest to Athena Studios and is served by London Midland trains.  


Bike stores are located at all of our properties.


With the exception of Athena Studios, which is in Selly Oak, all the other properties are clustered closely together and near the Aston University and Birmingham City University Campuses. This area is right on the edge of the city centre and it’s only a few minutes walk into the main shopping and entertainment district, with a whole host of places to eat, shop and socialise.

There is a Tesco Express near Aston Student Village. In Selly Oak, Athena Studios is close to an Aldi and Tesco Express. Within half a mile there is Battery Retail Park, which has shops like Next, Argos and Sainsburys.

The properties in Aston Student Village are located around a lake and landscaped area, which has a pleasant outlook. Eastside City Park is also close by.

Lisa Colman Service and Sales Advisor

I joined Unite Students seven years ago as a Housekeeper and then progressed into the Service and Sales Advisor role. I’ve also been training up to become a supervisor and have done so in a temporary fixed term contract. I enjoy working at Unite Students because of the pleasant and calm environment, with a real focus on team work. I agree with the values and purpose of the business and what we aim to achieve – the management are hands on so it feels like one big team.

Each day is different and I enjoy looking after the students, particularly if they’re experiencing any welfare issues. It’s really rewarding to see that we have happy students living with us.
