Studying in Birmingham

University Open Days 2016/17

Allow us to relieve the strain by checking in for the night (or even a whole weekend) at Staying Cool Birmingham. Our two bedroom Maxi and Penthouse serviced apartments are perfect for families to share.  

Still coming to terms with the idea of your children flying the nest and coming to study in the big city? Open Days are a fantastic way to see their new home for the next three years. Rather than rushing for the train home or discussing student halls in a cramped car, you could be perusing prospectuses and getting to see all Birmingham has to offer in the comfort of your own serviced apartment.

Staying Cool Birmingham is the perfect base for families wanting to stay in the very heart of the city. Although we aren't able to accommodate students alone (the primary guest must be 21 or over). 


With two en-suite bedrooms, you won't be tripping over each other to get ready for the early tours.

There are three Universities in the city and we are within easy reach of all of them. We've popped the details to all the local open days below. 

University of Birmingham

With limited parking at the Uni, it's far easier to hop on the train at New Street station which is but a four minute walk away from your apartment. Trains run approximately every 10 minutes to the 'University' stop with the journey lasting just under 10 minutes.
