Very student based area which is nice, a few things have occurred eg. Car break ins and quite noisy

★★★★★★★☆☆☆
The area is a student area and so noise and mess is expected. But convenient loacation for the university, town centre and shops. Despite this awful property, I have lived in much nicer houses in this area. Make sure to check out the landlord if the house because many do not care about student tenants at all.

Quieter than the part of Selly closer to campus, fantastic transport links (11 bus opposite the front door, 10 min walk to the train), and it's nice being so close to Bournville village.

Mostly residential area has a few corner shops nearby. 15 minutes away from the bigger shops, but close to you the silly oak retail Park and sainsbury's

In the heart of selly oak, everything is nearby! Less than 5 mins to walk on campus, 2 mins from aldi, 7 mins from Selly station, busstop is also 1 minute away, also have selly soak at the bottom of Dawlish road which is useful in winter months when nothing dries in the house. Lots of food options nearby too and pubs. Only thing is that the street can be quite loud on wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings/night.

Selly Oak, so loud and messy. Wednesday nights are the worst due to Sports Night. Good transport links, great selection of shops and restaurants. Close to the university.

Loud neighbour on one side - young children with a constantly screaming mother.

Refuse workers do not give you your bin back outside your house - you will have to go searching for it. Other houses rarely put their bins away.
