Hi! I was wondering whether anyone knew how quiet accommodation at Birmingham worked? I was wondering whether the quiet flats tend to only be available in 1 or 2 particular halls, and if so which halls they tend to be in? Thanks!

I'm interested in this too. Are quiet flats for students who take intense courses and are they less sociable? Or are people who live in quiet flats still sociable but not a big fan of parties?

Hi,

When you apply for your accommodation everyone can fill out a separate form and on it you can tick a box saying you would like to be in a quiet flat. I was in a quiet flat in Tennis Courts in first year. Quiet flats are still sociable and often people request them if they aren't interested in clubbing/parties. I am pretty sure all accommodation has a few quiet flats, so just apply to the ones you like the sound of.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have anymore questions.

I've heard Tennis Courts is known for its parties. Did you find the noise from other flats bothered you?

Hi,
I had had heard that too prior to moving in, but I don't think it's necessarily true. Tbh there will be parties (Covid dependent) regardless of the accommodation you are in. The walls are fairly thin so it could be noisy at times, but I think that's standard for most accommodation. It's not ideal, but you get used to it and it's not every night. Normally everyone leaves to go out by 11 anyway and so it quietens down after then at least.
