Oscott Gardens - 2017/18

Please note 2018/19 accommodation and full information will be released on 22 January 2018.

Oscott Gardens in Perry Barr is just a few minutes’ walk from the main facilities at City North Campus. Oscott Gardens is made up of five to eight bedroom flats with shared kitchen and dining facilities. The site is only a short walk from a large shopping centre and supermarkets, with bus stops and a train station next to the campus, as well as being a stones throw away from the Sir Doug Ellis Sports Centre.

We’ve been busy transforming Leyland House in the City North Student Village to include a cinema, pool table and study rooms, making it the perfect place for you to relax, hang out with friends and make new ones. Safety is paramount, so in addition to security officers, there is 24-hour CCTV and entry doors to all accommodation buildings have self-closing and self-locking devices fitted.

There are six wheelchair-accessible rooms here, with accessible en-suite bathrooms and shared adapted kitchens. Three of these accessible rooms have adjoining rooms for carers. There are a further 10 rooms which are designed for use by people with sensory impairments.
