FAQ's

  • Can I pay my booking fee over the phone?

If you're having problems booking online please contact the accommodation team and we can try to assist you, if needed they’ll take your payment over the phone, securing your reservation.

  • Do I need to have a UK-based guarantor?

You only need to provide a UK-based guarantor if you wish to pay your rent in three instalments. You do not need to provide a guarantor if you’re paying the full annual rent in advance.

  • Can I choose who I live with?

We are more than happy to accommodate groups as well as individuals. Where you’re not booking in a group, we understand your flat mates will be key to your experience so when you book as an individual, we will ask you a series of questions to help us to match you with the perfect flatmates.

  • Can I live with my friends?

Yes, you can share a flat, you need to let us know who you’re planning to live with. Provided we have the availability at the time of your booking, there shouldn’t be a problem. If you're looking to share a studio with a friend or partner you will have to book together. Please contact the site for further information on whether they allow dual occupancy as not all of our sites allow this. Some of our sites only allow dual occupancy in larger rooms.

Students do not have to pay Council Tax, but you must inform the council that your are a student and apply for exemption as this does not automatically happen. It is the responsibility of every student to apply for exemption, your University/College or accommodation provider cannot do this for you, though we can help you!

Local pubs, clubs, restaurants and more...

At Kensington House you could not be better placed to spend your days as a student. There are many great bars, pubs and local interests around. We've put together a few of the favourite local hot spots:

O2 Academy Birmingham - Entertainment Venue (16-18 Horsefair, Bristol Street, B1 1DB)

"One of Birmingham’s premier venues for live music which boasts three performance areas under one roof, and a full capacity of 3,859! Tickets are available for an whole range of artists and tribute bands and Propaganda Clubnight has a residency here every Friday.  Get your dancing shoes on and warm up those vocal cords!"

The Arcadian - Entertainment Complex (Hurst St, Southside, Birmingham, B5 4TD)

"Set in the centre of vibrant Southside, Chinatown and the Theatre District, the Arcadian is the entertainment venue for a more individual Birmingham night out! The bars, restaurants and comedy club set in this friendly and relaxed atmosphere are some of the best in Birmingham. The Arcadian is a unique complex set around an attractive piazza and is the perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy al fresco dining and drinks, when the British weather allows!  With cuisines from around the world there is something to suit all taste buds and pockets."

Bullring - Shops (Five Ways Leisure Centre, Birmingham, B15 1DA)

"Bullring is the glamorous heart of Birmingham with over 160 imaginative and desirable shops to explore and 40 restaurants and cafes to rest your weary feet. Since opening in 2003 Bullring has helped to transform shopping in Birmingham – making it one of the most popular destinations for retail therapy in the UK."

The Flapper, Cambrian Wharf Kingston Row, B1 2NU

“One of the city's most pleasantly poised music venues, The Flapper is a canal side pub in Birmingham with indie attitude. Located on the banks of Birmingham's canal, The Flapper is a two floored music venue in Birmingham known as a mecca for mods and rockers throughout the city. While upstairs is a rustic and lengthy bar with pool tables and a pinball machine to boot, downstairs is an intimate and lively venue for local gigs, big names and festivals alike.”

The Lord Clifden, 34 Great Hampton Street, B18 6AA

“From the likes of Banksy and Nick Walker to Obey, this bar is smothered in both Birmingham's and the UK's finest urban talent. Thanks to this modest collection, it's no surprise that Brum's young and diverse crowd flock to see the work and take in something a little different with their beer garden a quirky must.

It's not just the artwork that they're after though, with seven continental lagers on tap and being only one of two suppliers of 'Budvar Yeast' in Brum, they come for the eclectic drinks too.”
