A Safe & Reliable Approach...

A lettings agency run by YOUR Students’ Union, Birmingham City Student Homes launched in January 2011. We have employed enthusiastic and experienced staff, who are dedicated to ensuring your search for accommodation will be as trouble free and enjoyable as possible.

No Agency Fees

Birmingham City Student Homes is one of the few letting agencies in Birmingham that charges no agency fees to students to let a property, although there are fees to tenants who are late in paying their rent or wish to amend an existing agreement. Some of BCSH’s partner agencies may charge a fee to students for letting a property and these properties are indicated as such on our website.


Birmingham City Student Homes is wholly owned and run by your Students’ Union, an organisation with real financial and business strength. We have a presence on most campuses, where we run bars, shops, catering outlets, as well as delivering numerous non-commercial activities such as Advice, Sports & Activities & media centres.

In line with industry best practice, your rent is held in a separate client account for payment to your landlord and your deposits are held by the Government’s Deposit Protection Scheme.


We understand the importance of reliability, honesty and integrity. Birmingham City Student Homes has the full support and weight of the Students’ Union & Birmingham City University behind it.


We use a simple contract with easy to understand terms. We absolutely encourage you to take the contract away to read or get it checked out by the Student Union’s independent Advice & Information Centre and we definitely won’t ask you for a deposit before you can get a copy of the contract.
