Hello, I am starting a postgraduate course at BCU in January and I am still looking for accommodation. I have applied to places on spareroom but most are looking for people to move in immediately - I do not have anyone to move in with but I'm trepidatious about moving into halls as I'll be nearly 23 when I start and don't want to just be living with 18-year-olds (no offence to any 18-year-old users!)
I know a few halls blocks have January starts - are there any that are recommendable (preferably with a large proportion of older/postgrad students - I did my undergrad at Coventry and the majority of people I met in the last halls block I stayed at were postgrads afaict)? The ones I have seen are around £160 a week which is more than I would like to spend but I'll take what I can get at this point. I will be studying at the south campus but happy to live closer to the main campus.
In terms of housing, I have looked at student houses on spareroom and as mentioned the majority are not looking for January starters. Are there other avenues for finding student housing in Birmingham that any of you could recommend?
