At Kensington House, you can easily reach any of Birmingham’s top universities. Walk to Aston University in 18 minutes or take the bus to be there in 16 minutes. If you have taken a place at the University of Birmingham you can get to lectures in 13 minutes on the bus or pick up your car from its secure parking space on-site and arrive in six minutes. The Birmingham Business School is accessible too, either in eight minutes by car or 16 minutes by bus. If you prefer to get some exercise on your journey, there is free bike storage available at Kensington House as well.
When your alarm goes off each morning, head straight for the on-site gym to get in an early morning workout. Take your time getting back for a shower as there won’t be a queue - all apartments have their own bathroom. Afterwards, step into your slippers and head for the kitchen to make some breakfast or swing by Faculty Coffee on the way to lectures instead. If you feel like a treat, you could even pick up a banana almond cupcake for later.
When classes are over for the day, throw your gym clothes into the laundry and finish off your latest essay in one of your building’s study rooms. Alternatively forget your chores for the evening and watch a film in the on-site cinema with friends or challenge fellow students to a competition in the games room. When you get hungry, order chicken to takeaway from your local Nandos. You can check your social media as often as you like thanks to the free Wi-Fi in your building.
