About The Halls

The Old Fire Station gives the opportunity to live in an iconic Birmingham building, situated in the heart of the most vibrant part of Birmingham. If you decide to walk to the city centre, it will only take you around 12 minutes! With The Old Fire Station student accommodation, special attention has been given to its location and it offers easy access to all major universities and colleges in Birmingham. Getting to your Birmingham university or college will not take more than a few minutes by either walking or public transport.

The fireman’s pole and drill tower in The Old Fire Station has been lovingly preserved to give you an authentic experience of living in a fire station. Apart from these, you can choose bedrooms with shared bathrooms, en-suites and studios. All of these are available in Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Platinum varieties and you can choose the room that fits your budget and answers all your personal requirements. Irrespective of which rooms you choose, a comfortable living space, sleeping area, study area and ample storage are included in the rooms.

Apart from these, The Old Fire Station also has an on-site library and study area so that you can focus on your studies better, train links and bus links to almost every part of the city, making commute easy for the students and on-site bike storage to hold rental or personal bikes of the students. The place also offers a busy social calendar, filled with fun activities and social events that are organised for the students throughout the year!

About Birmingham


Birmingham is brimming with history, folklore and culture. Here, you will be able to experience a different language, a different dialect, different cuisine and maybe also a different dress code, everywhere you look! If you decide to spend a few days, months or years in Birmingham, there are a few things that you must do and a few places that you must see. One such experience is that of visiting the grand Victorian pub, The Bartons Arms. When here, you can enjoy a pint with the locals, exchange stories, take pictures or simply take in the experience.

If you want something more high-end, you can always book a table at one of the city’s Michelin-starred restaurants and enjoy a feast! For people looking for something different yet still a part of the local, contemporary culture, a visit to Raja Monkey for their scrumptious Indian thalis is a must!

Birmingham is also the birthplace of The Lord of the Rings. JRR Tolkein has admitted to being inspired by the old millpond of Moseley Bog, where he grew up, for his iconic books!

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy:

BOOKINGS MADE PRIOR TO 1 AUGUST 2021

7-Day Cooling-off Period

You can cancel your booking in writing or by sending an email directly to the Property Team within 7 days of accepting your tenancy agreement. If you decide to cancel your accommodation booking within these 7 days you will receive a full refund of your deposit. No fees, no fuss.

If you decide to cancel your booking after the 7-day cooling-off period, the below procedures will apply depending on your circumstances:

The following procedure applies to the below:

  • Failure to receive grades (all academic years)
  • Failure to obtain visa (all academic years)
  • Studying in an alternative city
  • The pre-sessional English language course required to take up your university place is cancelled
  • Deferment of University entry (all academic years)

If you secure your accommodation and then for the above reasons are no longer able to attend the affiliated University, official written evidence from the relevant University and/or Summer School and/or UCAS and/or VISA authorities/embassy must be sent directly to the Property Team within 3 calendar days of the results or decision being published. If sufficient evidence is provided, you will be eligible for release from the tenancy agreement and the full deposit will be returned.

The following procedure applies to the below:

  • Government travel restrictions prevent you from travelling to the UK

If you secure your accommodation and then Government imposed travel restrictions prevent you from travelling to the UK to take up your place at university, official written evidence from the University confirming that you have cancelled your studies and will not be enrolled as a student at the University for the 2021/22 academic year must be sent to the Property Team before the tenancy start date. If sufficient evidence is provided, you will be eligible for release from the tenancy agreement and the full deposit will be returned.

Alternatively, you may request that the start of your tenancy be put back to the first day of the month in which the restrictions are lifted and you are able to travel to the UK. Please submit your request to the Property Team before the tenancy start date. If sufficient evidence is provided, we will change your tenancy start date to the first day of the month in which the travel restrictions are lifted. We will send you written confirmation of your new tenancy start date. We will also apply a credit to your account for the accommodation fees for the period from your original tenancy start date to the new tenancy start date.

The following procedure applies to the below:

  • Change of mind
  • Booked different accommodation
  • Accepted onto a placement

If you do not wish to live at Student Roost for the above reasons, you will be required to find a replacement person to take over your tenancy. The replacement person must be a student and match the preferences of the accommodation (e.g. female only flat). The replacement person must sign a contract for the entire length of your tenancy agreement and secure this with payment of the deposit. If a replacement person is found, you will be released from your tenancy agreement from the start date of the replacement persons tenancy, and Student Roost will return your deposit in full. Please note that your deposit will be retained and you will remain liable for all accommodation fees until a replacement person is found.

1. BOOKINGS MADE ON OR AFTER 1 AUGUST 2021

If you book your accommodation on or after 1 August 2021, your cooling off period will reduce to 24 hours only from point of acceptance. If you cancel your booking within these 24 hours, your full deposit will be returned. Should you wish to cancel after these 24 hours, the procedures detailed in sections A and C of this policy will apply depending on your circumstances.

2. CANCELLATIONS FOLLOWING TENANCY START DATE

Should you wish to cancel after your tenancy has started the below procedures will apply depending on your circumstances.

The following procedure applies to the below:

  • Failure to make grades required to complete academic year
  • Eviction from University
  • Voluntarily withdrawn from University

If you are unable to continue your studies at university and will no longer be a university student, you may be eligible to be released from your tenancy. Your request to cancel must be submitted directly to the Property Team in writing or via email and be accompanied by evidence of your withdrawal from university and the reasons behind this.

If you are granted a tenancy release, your deposit will be returned to you (minus any deductions relating to the condition of the accommodation upon your departure).

The following procedure applies to the below:

  • Placement
  • Single Semester Course

If you want to cancel your tenancy due to the above reasons, you will be required to find a replacement person for the remainder of your tenancy period. The replacement person must sign a contract for the remaining length of your tenancy agreement and secure this with payment of the deposit. The replacement person must be a student and match the preferences of the accommodation (e.g. female only flat). If a replacement person is found, you will be released from your tenancy agreement from the start date of the replacement person’s tenancy and Student Roost will return your deposit (minus any deductions relating to the condition of the accommodation upon your departure). Please note that your deposit will be retained and you will remain liable for all accommodation fees until a replacement person is found.

Illness

If you wish to leave the accommodation due to illness, this will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The request to cancel must be made in writing or via email to the Property Team and any documentation supporting the reasons for the request must also be provided. Until a decision has been made, you will remain liable for all accommodation fees. If a tenancy release is not granted, you will be required to find a replacement person before you are released from your tenancy. If you are granted a tenancy release, your deposit will be returned to you (minus any deductions relating to the condition of the accommodation upon your departure).
