This has been the theme suggested by Birmingham University on the subject of student housing in Selly Oak every year that we can remember. For those students looking for accommodation for next year they tell you not to rush, indeed in many cases they say "leave it until the New Year".   One short story tells the tale of one girl who adhered to Birmingham University's advice not to rush when she was looking for a student house in Selly Oak.     A couple of years ago, on the first day back at Uni in January she went into one of the local estate agents and all she wanted was a 5 bed house but the minimum criteria was that the house had to...

Wow !! Where did the past year go ?   It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since we were showing prospective tenants around our Selly Oak properties last year.   The world of student accommodation doesn’t stand still nor do we at Unipads.    In the past year we have completed our magnificent development at Elliott Apartments.    In the same way as an old pub on Coronation Road was turned into 6 beautiful student homes (Elliott Villas) just a couple of years ago, so an old tyre replacement garage has been turned into our state of the art Elliott Apartments on Selly Hill Road. 8 superb apartments, all with ensuite facilities, each one...

University students in Birmingham looking for housing in the Selly Oak area -BEWARE!   One particular agent, who shall of course remain nameless, has been known to use a particular ruse to perpetrate the most appalling scam on unsuspecting young Birmingham University students looking for accommodation in Selly Oak.   A group of students went to view a particular property with this Selly Oak estate agent. They loved the house and went back to the agents office to sign up. First of all, each of them had to pay the agent a registration fee which effectively is a fee that the agents charge for nothing else other than showing the group over...

Well here we are again. That hectic time when students from The University of Birmingham and BCU begin their search for student accommodation for the next academic year in the Selly Oak area.  How things have changed over the years. 20 years ago Birmingham students would make it their business when they came back to University after the Easter holidays to secure a house for the following year, the tenancy period for which would commence just a couple months later in July. That would be in late April/early May.  By the early years of the new millennium that search for Selly Oak student accommodation would start when students returned after...
