Birks Grange Village key facts

Birks Grange Village is a state of the art eco residence built by our partners University Partnership Programme (UPP) providing townhouse, en-suite and studio accommodation.

There are 13 townhouses with 156 bedrooms in total. Each townhouse has 12 bedrooms on 3 floors with four bedrooms and two shower rooms on each floor. A shower room has a shower, toilet and hand basin so no wash basin is provided in any of the bedroom. Each of the townhouses has a shared kitchen/diner on the ground floor.

There are 286 single en-suite rooms with a shared kitchen/diner in cluster flats of up to eight rooms.

The 390 single studios are open-plan and include a double bed, workspace, en-suite bathroom (toilet, washbasin and shower) and small kitchenette/diner. Nine of these rooms are larger and available to student couples.

Residents are able to use the facilities in the Birks Grange Village Central Block, which is a catered residence.
