The Metalworks.
Contemporary. Convenient. Secure.

First year students wishing to book accommodation at The Metalworks for September 2017 must apply directly to University of Birmingham rather than to Host. Click here for more information. 

Handily located right on the edge of the University of Birmingham campus, The Metalworks’ past as a car factory is hard to believe when you see the contemporary living space that exists today. It’s the definition of modern student living. When you’re not strolling to lectures or enjoying the student buzz of Selly Oak, just hop on a bus or train for a short trip into the city centre. Your chance to put Birmingham’s much-admired Bullring shopping centre and vibrant nightlife to the test.

After having lived in three types of student accommodation in Coventry this is by far my favourite, reception staff are always available between their stated hours, all the staff on site are lovely!

The friend’s I’ve made at Paul St East have been great and we love the area. One of the best things about PSE is the staff; always friendly and willing to help!
