ACM Birmingham’s city-centre campus is situated in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter.

It’s a lively, creative and thriving place to study. Like most modern urban areas, city-centre living can be expensive but there are plenty of options for those considering student halls within walking distance.

Birmingham is known for it’s easily accessible transport links. Snow Hill train station is two minutes walk away and linked by tram to Birmingham’s main New Street/Grand Central station. The bus/tram system is efficient and serves the whole city.

Outside of the city centre, Birmingham’s largest student population is centred in the Selly Oak area (near to Birmingham University), this is where you will find low-cost house shares.

We recognise the importance of our students being able to make a home whilst studying with us.

Our knowledgeable team is on hand to help students source suitable accommodation.

More information on these options can be found below along with information on how to secure accommodation.

ACM has no partnership with these parties and does not receive money or other benefits for signposting students to accommodation.
