So whether you choose Manchester or Cheshire, you can find quality, affordable student homes – halls, flats and shared houses. The University runs 19 halls of residence, with a range of comforts and services including en-suite bathrooms, catering and internet access. Some specifically cater for postgraduates. Private rented accommodation is also available through the University.
‘If you are looking for excellent location, good services and impressive facilities, Mill Point has it all! I’m very happy that last year I made a good decision to stay there for my study’
– Joyce Jingting Deng, MA in Public Relations
All the university halls of residence have internet access through a broadband connection and a helpdesk support team. We can provide purpose-built rooms suitable for students with mobility difficulties and most halls offer rooms which have been specially adapted for students with sensory impairments. You are also welcome to come and visit the accommodation to check the facilities and discuss your particular needs.
However not all students wish to live in halls of residence. More and more postgraduates are choosing to go into privately owned houses and the University can provide help, advice and information to give you the right options to suit your needs. Our accommodation officers can provide help in finding accommodation of all types, including family flats, studio flats and shared student houses for independent living. The accommodation officers can also provide contact details for private landlords, many of whom follow a code of practice agreed with the University.
The University is also a joint owner of Manchester Student Homes, a web-based accommodation service for students based at our Manchester campuses. Their website has details of many Manchester properties.
‘Manchester is the country’s top university destination. Three separate surveys have placed the city at the top of the class for students because the city is exciting, offers good accommodation and amenities and boasts friendly campus environments’
