Life at student accommodation -The Recording Rooms – Part 2

As part of the ‘meet our residents’ series, we had a chat with Elle who lives at The Recording Rooms.

We asked her about all things student accommodation and what it’s been like living with us for the past two years…

Name: Elle

Age: 21

University: University of Birmingham, studying LLB Law

How long have you been a resident at The Recording Rooms: 2 years

How did you hear about The Recording Rooms: By a friend’s recommendation. In my first year I had an opportunity to visit my friend’s studio and right after that I decided to live here!

What do you like most about living at The Recording Rooms: The best thing about The Recording Rooms is its location. It is very near to the University, and it is in the safest area of Selly Oak. On top of that, I like the room design. Although the room size is similar to that of other student accommodation, the room design allows more storage and walking space.

It also has a gym which is very convenient. Last but not least, the site manager (Katie) is very kind and responsive to any problems I encountered while living here.

What do you like most about living in Birmingham: Everything is easily accessible in Birmingham. Plus it has its own international airport which saves the hassles of moving luggage around.

Have you made friends at The Recording Rooms/do you socialise on site: Yes, I actually made a group of new friends whilst doing laundry! We later joined the school choir together. I also socialise with my flatmates in the flat kitchen.

What one piece of advice would you give to anyone looking for student accommodation: I would say choose accommodation which offers excellent customer service and maintenance — for example, a good reception which will sign parcels for you. If anything is out of order, staff will be readily available to repair.
