How much does rent cost for students in Birmingham?

Private student accommodation in Birmingham usually costs from £139.00 to £185.00 per week.

However, there are several factors that decide the cost of rent for student accommodation in Birmingham. This includes the facilities and amenities that will be provided as well as whether it is privately owned. Student accommodation sites are usually either owned by a landlord, a university or dedicated student accommodation company, such as Collegiate.

Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city, so it’s understandable that it wouldn’t be cheap, however it’s worth noting that living expenses can be around 40% cheaper than what you’d pay in London. You’re certainly getting more for your money when you’re studying in Birmingham, but being in the Midlands means you benefit from an amazing location that offers convenient travel, reduced living expenses and cheaper rent for student accommodation than if you were in the UK capital.

Rent for our student accommodation in Birmingham starts from £157 per week and depends on what kind of living space you would like from our choice of shared apartments with private rooms or private studios. Although no matter what you choose, your rent will always include all bills, WiFi, a private en-suite and a range of premium facilities such as a cinema room, social spaces and an on-site gym.

How do I pay for my student room in Birmingham?

You can make rent payments online using your credit or debit card via your Collegiate Portal account or by bank transfer – whichever you find easiest! Although if you’d like to pay by bank transfer, be sure to contact the Accommodation Management Team who will be more than happy to help you get that sorted.

You have the option to pay your rent in 1, 3 or 4 instalments. If you’re paying in one full instalment, the whole process can be completed quite quickly. However, if you’re opting for the flexibility of 3 instalments, it’s still super quick and easy, there’s just a few things for you to know. You will need a UK-based guarantor or you can Housing Hand as a guarantor – although note that Housing Hand does come with an extra charge, so check out their website for the full details.

The flexibility of paying in 4 instalments is offered to students who’ll be relying on a student loan or grant to pay their rent. You’d still be expected to pay 4 weeks’ rent 10 days before your tenancy start date, and a larger instalment at the end of September – which is typically when loans and grants are paid in to students.

To help you keep on track of your finances while you’re studying, log in to your Collegiate account where you can download a full schedule of payment dates.

How much money will I spend on bills as a student in Birmingham?

On average, UK students in Birmingham will spend approximately £37 per month on bills.
