About The Toybox

Birmingham is a historic English city with a long and illustrious history dating back to the Stone Age. Its name comes from the Old English word "Beormingahm," which means "home of the Beormingas" and refers to a tribe who lived there during the early Anglo-Saxon period.

The Toybox Homes For Students is a student housing in Birmingham that offers Studio and Ensuite room types. The Studios come in four styles: Classic Studio, Premium Studio, Premium Accessible Studio, and High Floor Premium Studio. As for the Ensuites, they come in six styles: Premium 3 Bed Ensuite, Premium Accessible Ensuite, Classic 3 Bed Ensuite, Classic 5 Bed Ensuite, High Floor Classic 3 Bed Ensuite, and High Floor Premium 3 Bed Ensuite. The rooms are spacious and feature double beds, ensuite bathrooms, plenty of storage, a study desk and chair, and high-quality furnishing.

The Toybox Homes For Students has a perfect location being on Bishopsgate Street, just a nine-minute walk from Birmingham city centre. It is surrounded by many great locations and exciting entertainment venues. Furthermore, there are lots of nice places to dine. If you want to grab a quick bite, The Meat Shack is a short walk from the property and it offers juicy burgers plus drinks in a cozy setting. If you’re an Italian food enthusiast, Del Villaggio - Broad St eatery is a few minutes away from the residence and it serves classic tasty Italian dishes in a simple atmosphere.

When you need to do some grocery shopping, Tesco Express is just a five-minute walk from the building and it has a wide selection of products at good prices to cater to your needs. After a long day on campus, we recommend you take a refreshing walk at Sunset Park just across the street. It has greenery, benches, and walking trails. During the weekend, you may go on a night out with your friends and watch the latest box office movies at Cineworld Cinema - Birmingham Broad Street. If not, we suggest you visit Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and explore the history of the city and have a one-of-a-kind aesthetic experience.

Cancellation Policy

Can I cancel my booking?

If you accept an offer of accommodation online or by signing a Tenancy Agreement, and then decide you wish to cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period, the following applies:

  • You remain liable for the weekly rent (for each and every week or part week) until you are able to find another tenant that is acceptable to Homes for Students (it is your responsibility to find another tenant) and we are able to re-let the room
  • If we are able to re-let the room we will release you from the agreement upon payment of a £250 release fee which we will recover by retaining your deposit (which will not, therefore, be returned). If you have paid a different amount as a deposit (such as £150) then this is the amount that will be retained.

1st Year Applicants Only

If you are a prospective student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution, you may be eligible to be released from this agreement.

To apply to be released from the agreement you will need to provide:

  • Written confirmation that you wish to cancel your reservation.
  • Supporting evidence from the University or UCAS.

Special conditions

You can terminate your tenancy agreement if you have an existing medical condition and this is recorded on your application prior to a room offer being made. We will require medical proof with your application and you will be liable for a minimum of 4 weeks’ rent or to the end of the current rent period, whichever is longer.

The Chinese lady Sandy at the front desk was very enthusiastic. When I came to the apartment on the first day, I saw her smile like a sunflower. Very warm. The young lady is very beautiful and will help us in time when we encounter difficulties. When we sent a message to ask her a question, she also responded quickly to us. It's great. The service of this apartment is really good. There is also tall maintenance worker who are also very enthusiastic. So good!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Toybox! The staff went out of their way to be friendly, everywhere I looked there was a smile, and Sandy at the front desk has fantastic taste in hats :) The study rooms were both comfortable and quiet, and the gym had everything you could need.
