About James Watt Residences
James Watt is perfectly situated around Aston's lake, just a short stroll to Birmingham city centre, where you can find local amenities. It is very close to the Thinktank Birmingham science museum and Curzon Street station.
Living here you will have the opportunity to visit Eastside City Park for a stroll anytime. You will also have access to Digbeth branch Canal nearby. A short stroll will take you directly to the city centre where you can find various shopping centres, St. Philip Cathedral, Queen Victoria Statue and Birmingham Town Hall.
James Watt Birmingham student housing has furnished bedrooms, fitted kitchens, laundry facilities, communal spaces, secure bike storage, and on-site vending machines with snacks. Also, it has a Wi-Fi, insurance, all-inclusive bills, 24/7 CCTV and security, free MyUnite app maintenance, on-site management team, and 24/7 emergency contact centre.
*The building accepts dual occupancy on studios and some One-Bedroom flats. There is a new policy in place which incurs a 25% surcharge on the weekly rate.
Please note that the tenancy will be under one student name only as we cannot have 2 tenants listed on the contract. The booking form should include the name of the student who will be responsible for the rent and the name of the second tenant.

Unite Students has 2 policies in place:
- No Place No Pay
- No Visa No Pay
If a student did not obtain the results needed to attend the university of their choice in the UK, the student needs to provide the copy of the UK university rejection letter, or the exam results showing they didn’t reach the grades needed for their university in the UK.
These documents need to be sent within 7 days of receiving them. The documents must show the student’s name and the date at which it was sent to them.
(If IELTS results are received in June and Unite is informed in August that the student wants to cancel, we will not be able to refund the £250 to the student).
If a student fails to obtain a visa to come to the UK, the rejection letter must be sent within 7 days of receiving it.
The cut-off date on our website for these 2 policies (No place, no pay and no visa no pay) is on the 23rd August. However, this year, we have been able to accept some cancellations and to refund the £250 to students after this date, on a case by case basis. This only applied to students who received their results late in August.
If a student wants to cancel a booking for any other reason (they changed their mind, they found alternative accommodation etc), the student will need to find a replacement or he will remain liable for the whole rent.
You can help the student to find a replacement to take over their room. Once a replacement is found, we will cancel the booking for the original student and process the booking for the replacement student.
If the booking for the replacement student doesn’t go to “complete” status, the original student remains liable for the rent.
