University-owned halls of residence are situated in Birmingham city centre and provide a safe and secure, affordable, and happy environment in which students can study and enjoy an active social life.
Located beside the canal, just a 15-minute walk away from the campus buildings, The Maltings is within easy reach of a wealth of shops, pubs, cafes, student budget restaurants and rail and coach stations.
It offers 827 purpose-built study bedrooms – 809 en-suite rooms, 18 with shared bathrooms, and five twin bedrooms. All bedrooms are fully furnished with a bed, wardrobe, shelves, plus a desk and chair for studying. Halls are split into flats of six to nine bedrooms and each flat has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area.
Some ground floor rooms have been designed to accommodate students with special requirements, including accommodation for carers. In addition to a fitness suite, sports hall, and landscaped gardens on-site, The Maltings also features The Maltings Social Space, a communal area offering space for relaxation and events.
Weekly rent at The Maltings starts at £115 and there are no up-front costs or deposit required when students apply. Rent is inclusive of utilities, WiFi, and contents insurance. Contracts run for 42 weeks, from September to June, and many contracts are open to international and EU students on placement. The university has a dedicated accommodation team to support students, and students in their first year are guaranteed a place in the halls of residence, with social support before arrival through Unibuddy and the university’s UCBconnect.
University College Birmingham has invested more than £140 million into its campus buildings and training facilities in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
The university’s practical facilities include a health skills and simulation suite with a replica hospital ward, cutting-edge sports facilities including a human performance centre, one of the largest financial trading suites among all universities in the UK, a digital creative studio and IT suite, prosthetics studio, a £2.1m professional aesthetics clinic for trainee practitioners and an aviation and tourism suite complete with a mock plane cabin. New facilities include a sustainable engineering and construction centre to meet demand for specific skills required for a ‘greener’, modern age.
For students on food and hospitality courses, the university’s industry-standard kitchens and innovative Food Science and Innovation Suite provide the perfect environment to master culinary skills, while there is also an award-winning training restaurant on campus that enjoys a great reputation with the public and professionals alike.
Its Moss House and McIntyre House buildings in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter are a short walk from the university’s Summer Row and Camden House campuses, as well as The Link support services building. There are numerous cafes and diners including a large, relaxing ‘living room’ featuring a coffee shop at Moss House for students to enjoy, as well a US-style diner with a centrepiece pizza oven that overlooks the courtyard and provides outdoor seating.
