I have been in Compass for the past few months, really love the place for so many reasons, first of all, the accessibility to the city centre and the university, along with the security and safety of the building. Rooms are spacious and include all the amenities necessary for studies to meal prep. The facility includes common areas to and study and a gym to stay active. Overall, the management is helpful and attends to the requirements including maintenance on time

It's just minutes away from the BCU City Centre Campus and 15 minutes from city centre. The staff are friendly, and the management is perfect.

Room no : 45 Accomodation is at perfect location, 10min wali from Aston University, 3min to BCU, 15min from city center. Property is well maintained & friendly crew as well, available 24/7. For groceries we have Co-op at 1 min & convenience store next to the building. Gym facilities are available with required equipments. I would recommend this place for newbies who are yet to decide.

it is a suitable option for a single student or you can live with your partner.However, please note that rooms facing the road can be a bit noisy due to traffic. In terms of value for money, the rent is quite high at 927.27 pounds per month, which may be a significant portion of a student's monthly earnings. Additionally, the design of the blinds in the room needs to be improved as they don't allow for full window opening. The pool table area should be more comprehensive as there is often a queue that gets stuck against the wall. On a positive note, the gym facilities are good, and both the manager and receptionists are polite and helpful.

Compass Birmingham has been my sanctuary for over a year, providing the perfect blend of serenity and convenience. As a research student, its peaceful environment and personal amenities like the coffee bar and private TV have been invaluable for balancing intense study sessions with relaxation. Its proximity to both the university and city center makes it an ideal choice for international students seeking a supportive community and a true home away from home. Highly recommend for those in search of tranquility amidst academic rigor.
