Hall places for students currently studying at Manchester Metropolitan University are now full. If you require accommodation for the next academic year, please contact Manchester Student Homes, our free University owned housing service for students.
We guarantee to make an offer of University-approved accommodation to all full-time undergraduate students provided you:
If your application falls outside the conditions of our accommodation guarantee, whilst you are still welcome to apply, you will not be guaranteed accommodation. If we are unable to offer accommodation and / or to meet specific requests, you will be referred to Manchester Student Homes, our FREE University owned housing service for students.
Manchester Metropolitan University reserves the right to withdraw an offer of accommodation if you fail to meet admission requirements or if a programme is withdrawn.
The University has absolute discretion to make the final decision about which accommodation will be offered to individual students.
*Deadline of Thursday 16 August for international students.
**For University partner halls completes guarantor, contract and deposit process within the required time.
We try to ensure that accommodation places go to those who will get the most from the experience of living in a residential community of students. This is why we reserve the majority of places for first year students, though we also give priority to disabled students.
We do not group students on University course profile (e.g. students studying on the same course) or prioritise students for a particular hall based on the proximity of their academic building or the course they are studying.
Partner accommodation is owned and managed by other providers but can be applied for through the Manchester Met application process. This includes Cavendish Place, New Medlock House, Liberty Central or Wilmslow Park.
You must be 18 or over to enter into a contract for Manchester Met University accommodation. If you will be under 18 on or after the start of the contract you will not be eligible for our accommodation. However, help and advice is available from the Student Living team to direct you to alternatives.
Eligible care leavers will be given priority to apply for a room (a care-leaver is a person that has been in the care of the Local Authority, for example, living in foster care or at a children’s home within the last two years.).
Manchester Met is committed to equality and diversity. We give special consideration to students with disabilities and we have a number of accessible rooms to accommodate your need.
If you are a postgraduate student or are looking for accommodation to live with your family or partner, there are various options available.
The accommodation registration window open for returning students from 10am.
Registrations open for new students from 10am
