Most helpful review

IQ Birmingham is an accommodation that no UoB students have heard of. No one applies to it and when you don't get any of your choses you are given IQ. It's far away from UoB and doesn't give you the university halls experience you would receive on the Vale. This being said, however, it's great value for ensuite accommodation- much less than you'd pay for ensuite on the vale. It is clean and well maintained. Any issues are always quickly resolved! It's near town and broad street which is a benefit and it's also close to the station. The rooms are good size with loads of storage! I've actually loved my flat and my room but the commute is a shame!!

I used to think this accommodation was good value for money however things absolutely do not get fixed quick enough. The lift has been broken for nearly 4 months If not already more and I live on the 10th floor! I have been told that last year the same happened to the other side of the building lift had been broken for 3 months. I am forced to drag my luggage up and down when I go home and make a return. Have to keep shopping minimal because it’s too heavy to carry! It is beyond me how it can take this long to fix. I am tired!

This accommodation does not deserve a single star. I have lived in many university accommodations during my studies but this is without a doubt THE WORST ONE. It's a real shame how the residence works, the staff is rude, the inspections to your apartment are constant, and the WORST thing of all are the fire alarms. They can be at 2 am and the alarm goes off, or at 8 am, again at noon, again at night... and so on. It's a nightmare. And even after all the torment we have to live among constant alarms no matter what time of day/night it is, right now we just had a fire drill. (YES SURE, BECAUSE WE BARELY HAVE this situation EVERY SINGLE DAY) And a staff member yelled at us for not leaving the building in less than 10 minutes... HOW IN THIS WORLD you want us to leave in 10 minutes when this alarm is continuously sounding we are getting used to live with it, if we have to go down every time we hear it we would have to live on the street. DO NOT BOOK YOUR ROOM HERE

It's an ok place, but for some reason landlord doesn't fix things that break, for example, the lift breaks and people who live on ninth floor have to walk up 6 flights of stairs for 3 months. They don't repair the lift immediately, don't know why, probably to save money for themselves. Really annoying given that if exam season is approaching

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your time and are glad you found iQ Broderick House a good place to live. With regards to the lift being out of service - this has indeed happened last year in October, due to a tenant misusing the lift and therefore causing a fault in it. Our team did their utmost to get the lift working again. However, the manufacturer of the lift is based in Spain, which is why it took a little while longer to get it repaired. This was also communicated to all tenants. We hope this clarifies the issue. If you have any other experience you'd like to discuss, please get in touch with us at hello@iqstudent.com. Thanks!

It's a relatively nice and clean place but they never reply to my emails about deposit of £250 after I left them. I have sent them 5 emails trying to ask for my deposit and they never reply
