    So, I've had an unconditional offer from BCU to start studying in September 2017! I'm going to study sports and exercise science in the south city campus! My only issue is I really wanted an en suite and from what I can see the halls don't have en suites in south city?
    Do I brave the shared bathrooms?!?! Or are there any other close halls to the city south campus that do have an en suite? I may sound bad but I'm a clean freak!!
    Any help would be massively appreciated.

    I have had an unconditional to BCU to study Sports Therapy. Looking at halls i'm probs gonna go for the new ones which are called University Locks. They are in the city centre and also have easy links to City South where my course it. However, they are quite expensive. Gonna have a look at Heights but have spoken to a few mates who are at BCU and they said Heights is abit dodgy. But i cant make that decision without actually seeing it x

    Our Belgrave View halls are a good option for City South students still wanting to be close to central Brum, which also have en suite bathrooms. They're a 5 minute bus ride to our City South campus, or 25 minute walk if you fancy the exercise. And a 5 minute drive (little longer via bus) or 18 minute walk to the restaurants, bars, cinema etc. on Broad Street. The en suites contain shower, sink and toilet, as well as towel rail, hooks, and vanity mirror. Priority on Belgrave View is given to City South and Conservatoire students, which is big :borat: for City South students after the central living and en suites.
    More info, including virtual tours of the rooms and en suite is here!
    We do have plenty of other accommodation as well, with City South halls bang in the centre of campus. These are shared bathrooms though, is this the only worry you have for these halls? They'll be plenty of friendly people at the visit day today, so please ask them all your questions and let them know your worries!

    Hi Hannah,

    Would it help if you had a nosey round Bentley House? Just to let you know we have other post grads booked for September. If you want to arrange a viewing, give us a call on 0121 201 3870
