Birmingham is one of the top places in the UK for shopping and is home to the Bullring Shopping Centre. The centre is a 20-minute walk from the residence and holds three floors with over 160 stores available, so you will never be short on choice. The Mailbox is also home to big fashion retailers like Harvey Nichols and the historic Jewellery Quarter hosts over 100 specialist jewellery retailers, designers and craftspeople.

There is also an outdoor courtyard for you to be able to utilise when the weather is nice for touching up that tan, or a breath of fresh air whilst studying – which can help with concentration, particularly during those important exam times.
Safety of students is a high priority at the residence, and that is why it is monitored by CCTV 24 hours a day – a little bit like having a guardian angel watching over you. There is a 24 hour manned reception should you have any questions and need pointing in the right direction.
