Getting to grips with a new city is an exciting challenge. For the vast majority of students, moving away from the area in which they grew up is an inevitability, but the great news is the countless positive aspects of this adventure completely eclipse any temporary fear of the unknown.
It doesn’t take long to hit your stride once you have explored your new surroundings and established where all the best shops, bars, restaurants and attractions are. Sussing out the local transport links, and your proximity to the nearest universities and colleges, is also a fast-track way of getting settled.
Take City Edge in Birmingham, for example. Situated in one of the UK’s leading university cities, the purpose-built student accommodation enjoys a prime spot near the thriving city centre, cultural hotspots and education providers.
Eat, Drink & Shop
If a big night out is on the cards with your new friends, the city centre is just a 10-minute taxi ride away. The famous Bierkeller is guaranteed to get you dancing – on the tables sometimes – while Tiki-themed Island Bar delivers a leading line-up of DJs to keep you entertained while you sip on cocktails. Elsewhere in the centre, Bodega provides a mouth-watering range of South American food if you fancy a bite to eat.
Victoria Square is home to stunning architecture, as well as Birmingham’s most popular shopping destinations and eateries. And the famous New Street guides you from Bullring at one end to the Town Hall at the other, taking in high street stores and Odeon cinema along the way.
Close to Birmingham’s Universities
City Edge also has the advantage of being close to the likes of Aston University, University College Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Law, and University of Birmingham, all of which are barely 15 minutes away if you are cycling or in the car.
The property’s facilities ensure residents enjoy a fun, safe and comfortable environment, in which they can both study and relax with ease. An on-site property team are on hand to answer any questions – something that comes in particularly handy in those early weeks while you are familiarising yourself with everything.
Spacious studios are complemented by contemporary communal areas that boast sofas, Freeview TV and a dining table. Smart study stations enable you to get your head down and work in peace, with 100mbs Wi-Fi running through the building.
City Edge was designed and built with the needs of the student in mind. Residents enjoy luxury yet affordable living, on top of the convenience of living close to their place of study, the city centre and local transport links.
