    Them photos are a great help! Are Oscott rooms/kitchens pretty much similar then?
    Oscott's bedrooms are a similar size but have their own shower/toilet in the corner, so altogether its a big bigger.
    Kitchen/lounge area is bigger in Oscott, and they get sofas as well as a kitchen table. I will try and find some photos of it, the only ones I have at the moment are those taken at parties, and theyre not the best ones to judge an accommodation by!

    Is transport at a reasonable price travelling from town to Perry Barr? I am considering looking at accommodation in city centre and then take public transport to lectures instead now.
    £2 max on both train and bus, of course cheaper on the train if you have a rail card. Trains are every half hour from New Street too . Deffo worth it.

    Also, is Oscott/Coppice best for freshers week as i missed out on freshers week in my previous uni as i moved into halls late so everybody had already bonded from day 1 and i came along few months later. I did enjoy the halls experience but i had lots of problems with food being stolen as soon as i bought them and people using my bowls, plates etc.
    Oh yeah that would be great if you had more photos of Oscott! Thanks for your help though, i just wanna make sure i enjoy uni this time around haha!

    Is there no yearly bus pass for students provided by the uni? But does sound cheap though!

    I'll be staying at Canalside (by Snow Hill station in the city centre) even though my campus is in Perry Barr.

    Just thought I'd mention it in case people are still looking for somewhere. Only £89 a week including all bills and an en-suite, dishwasher, TV in the kitchen/lounge and even a mini fridge in every room! It's pretty much brand new, and is by far the best student accommodation I've seen, and trust me, I've looked at a lot

    Oscott is probably nicer, but more expensive.
    Not a huge difference in them, and that extra bit of money every week can go a long way if you live at Coppice (which is a lovely place to live too).

    I'm currently a student at BCU, if you have any questions, just message me! But yeah, Perry Barr is like 3 miles + away from the city centre.... so yeah, it's pretty much a bummer when you want to go for a night out >.< Luckily, I'm at Millennium Point which is in the city centre xD
    Tonny hi! I am going to live in the curzon gateway, which as i can see is 5 minutes walk from millenium point, is that correct? However i would use your help in two things: first of l how close to the centre of the city is curzon, by walking. Second thing, do you the distance from biad, school of art, margaret str. It says that curzon is ideally suited, but i do not assume thst from the map. Could you enlight me please? I am arriving in one week!!!!
