The Old Fire Station, complete with its original iconic fireman’s pole and drill tower, has been transformed into Birmingham’s landmark student accommodation.

Just imagine sharing an apartment with your favourite mates (or meeting new ones) or moving here to make your very own studio your home. The variety of student accommodation at The Old Fire Station combines both; apartments with either en-suite bedrooms or rooms sharing a bathroom. Or if sharing’s definitely off the list, claim a place of your own in an en-suite studio. Reassuringly, all are designed with the same attention to detail and feature small double beds, roomy work areas and bags of storage.

The Old Fire Station may the best place to enjoy the distractions of the city but it’s also a prime spot for major study destinations. With Aston University opposite, there’s also easy access to University College Birmingham, Birmingham City University, Newman University and Birmingham University. When you need to take a break, head for The Old Fire Station’s own social space where our on-site team are constantly rustling up fun ideas for your free time.

Did you see us on Channel 4’s “Great British Buildings: Restoration of the Year” series? Hosted by Kevin McCloud and Dr Anna Keay, we featured on the 4th episode as they judged some of the most incredible restoration projects in the UK. The Old Fire Station was chosen by the judges as the winner in that category – see the full story on our blog.

I love living at The Old Fire Station because it’s so close to everything! Uni, shops and central Birmingham are right on my doorstep.

Kieran, 3rd year

The Old Fire station is great for couples. The Studio flats here are so roomy and comfortable, plus it’s quiet too!

Emma, 2nd year

Studying in a place steeped in so much history is incredible. The private library looks like it was taken straight from Hogwarts!
