The Student Accommodation Code

Where you live is a big part of being at university or college, which is why University College Birmingham is one of a number of universities and further education colleges that is signed up to The Student Accommodation Code.

The Code protects our students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation, to make sure our students get the best out of their time living in our residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our accommodation as well as their responsibilities as tenants.

The Code has already raised standards of accommodation at University College Birmingham and underpins our ongoing dedication to our students. We are fully committed to providing a safe, comfortable living environment which will help support our students in leading a successful and enjoyable student life.
