    Hi, I’m planning on going to uni in Birmingham next year but I’m not from the area (I live in Aylesbury). I’m not a very social person and tend to hang out with just a few people at a time. Soooo I’ve been looking at accommodation outside of the typical ‘student areas’ and this place called Sparkbrook is coming up a lot. Is the area good/bad around there? I like to walk places so an area within a 30min walking distance of the city centre would be ideal. Which other areas would you recommend? I’d be looking for a studio flat/1 bed.
    Also, the ideal location would be a place with one or more takeaways and at least one corner shop nearby (a 10-15 min walking distance). I’m not too bothered about crime rates (to an extent) but I also don’t want a complete sh*t tip of an area. Lol thank you in advance for your answers 🙃

    Moving this to the student accommodation forum. Google is a good place to start. The uni may also have some suggestions about areas and landlords. Contact the accommodation office and they may be able to help you.
