Moving out of campus accommodation and renting your own student home is a key step on your university journey. It’s an exciting time, but it can also be a little daunting, especially if it’s the first time you’ve rented and looked after your own bills.

That’s why Community Living is here to help you navigate the private renting world and make the most of living in Selly Oak’s vibrant community.

We can support on everything from contract checking and choosing the right home to getting on with your new neighbours, so you can rent and live off campus with confidence.
