- More students call Birmingham home than any other UK city except London (The Telegraph)
- Birmingham has one of the highest percentages of under 25s in Europe, almost 40% of the population
- Collegiate AC launch contemporary university residence in the city’s buzzing Selly Oak student district
A new guide to the University of Birmingham, published by The Telegraph, has revealed that Birmingham is home to more students than any other UK city, with the exception of London. In fact, the number of undergraduates, postgraduates and young professionals that call the city home is rapidly increasing and now almost 40% of the population is aged under 25, one of the highest percentages in Europe.
Such a youthful population means that the city is perfectly prepared for the student lifestyle, with cafés, pubs, restaurants, shops, bars, galleries, clubs and museum offering a huge range of both educational and entertainment options. In order to meet the expectations of new and existing students, Birmingham’s student accommodation is constantly evolving to suit to those looking for a stylish lifestyle that makes the most of such a vibrant city.
800 Bristol Road is the newest addition to Birmingham’s student residences, and will certainly be the envy of many of its predecessors. Part of the UK’s leading luxury student accommodation provider Collegiate AC’s Prestige Collection, 800 Bristol Road will provide students with the perfect environment for study and socialising. In the heart of the city’s buzzing Selly Oak student district, the property offers contemporary, spacious studio apartments with en-suite shower rooms, kitchens and desk areas.
As well as state of the art sleeping quarters, students will also be able to take full advantage of the exclusive on-site facilities. The residents’ club lounge provides the ideal atmosphere for listening to music and relaxing in good company, an on-site cinema will ensure you can watch the latest movies in comfort and style and an exclusive dinner party room that will allow you to show off your culinary talents… or simply to get together with friends for a delivery pizza feast.
With a beautiful new show flat now available for viewings, Heriberto Cuanalo, CEO of Collegiate AC, is delighted to see the project come to fruition and is confident in the university lifestyle it can offer Birmingham’s student population. He comments,
“800 Bristol Road will provide students with a unique living experience, enabling them to make the most of their university careers both studiously and socially. The lifestyle-led apartments and social spaces have been carefully designed to create an environment where students can feel safe and looked after.”
From £193 a week, with high speed broadband and Wi-Fi throughout the property, 800 Bristol Road is the perfect home for students who want to get the most out of their university accommodation. With a modern setting and a welcoming environment, 800 Bristol Road will provide a home away from home for its residents.
