Birmingham City University accommodation
Birmingham City University provides vocational programmes taught using applied teaching methods, which means that everyone will find something to suit their needs, and our accommodation is perfectly located to make the most of your student experience.
Birmingham City University – or BCU for short – is a relatively new University, formed back in 1992. Despite accommodating some students older than the institution itself, there’s been plenty of scope for the University to develop in a short time, and as a result it ranks highly. As one of five universities in Birmingham, it contributes to a strong student culture within the city.
In spite of the fact that around half the students attending are ‘local’ – from the Midlands, where it’s based – there is still plenty of diversity to be found. Students come from a range of ethnic and national backgrounds and there are even plenty of international students to be found.
Birmingham City University provides vocational programmes taught using applied teaching methods, which means that everyone will find something to suit their needs. The key focus is on employability as well as investing in your future, which is why so many of their graduates succeed with a lot more than just a piece of paper to show for themselves when they leave.
BCU prides itself on honing a supportive learning environment for all, and as a professional university, it’s able to cater to everyone. As a result, it’s an in demand institution.

Overall it’s made up of three buildings: Millennium Point, The Parkside Building and The Curzon Building. These house great facilities to improve your learning.
The Student Union at BCU is about so much more than a place to have a few cheap drinks. They can help you in all aspects of student life and beyond, in areas like finding a job, joining one of almost 300 societies or even getting involved in community projects. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Student Union if you couldn’t grab that cheap drink whilst you’re at it!

It’s no exaggeration to say that these factors are the ones which will make your student experience as full as can possibly be.
