University Locks is located literally 2 minutes walk from the City Centre campus, making it easy to roll out of bed and into a 9am lecture! The building is only a 10/15 minute walk from the Bullring shopping centre and New Street station. All of the kitchens are equipped with very modern cooking facilities such as cookers, microwaves, and include a kettle and a toaster, which are often not included in other university halls. It’s very easy to make friends at University Locks, as there are 4/5 flats on each floor so you bump into people from other flats a lot. There are 2 common rooms: one with pool tables and a TV for relaxing, and another which is a designated work space. The rooms are very modern and spacious, which come with a 3/4 sized bed and a large en-suite bathroom. The only negative of the building is the price, which is very steep!
