Before you arrive

There are a number of things for you to think about before you get here!

The Student Mentor Scheme has put together a useful guide covering everything you need to know before you arrive at the University of Birmingham.

The guide includes information such as; your accommodation site and navigating your way around campus and the local area, registering with a GP, things to do in Birmingham and lots more!

To download the guide, please click here:

Flatmate Finder App

In addition to the guide, don’t forget that you can find out who you will be living with before you even get here, by downloading the Student Mentor Scheme’s fantastic Flatmate Finder App.

Not only can you find flatmates, but also those living in your block and on your course too! To download the app please click here
