Find your people – join a society
A great way to make meaningful new friendships is to join our clubs and societies, run through our Guild of Students.
You won’t be cut off
There are many reasons you may want to live at home while at university. For example, being rent-free and not having to worry about paying bills, grocery shopping and living off beans on toast, even if you do have to muck in with the chores!
See your home city with fresh eyes
You might have lived in or around Birmingham all your life. But like most of us, you probably haven’t explored much of it. Now’s your chance!
You’re in the youngest city in Europe – have some fun
It might be tempting to just sit at home when you don’t have to be at lectures and seminars, but if you get the chance to splash out, there are plenty of fun things to do with friends in and around Birmingham.
