Residential Advisors

Residential Advisors will run regular events in your accommodation to help you settle in.

The accommodation at Manchester Metropolitan University offers comfortable flats and townhouses in which students from varying backgrounds and studying a variety of courses live in a mutually-supportive environment.

Your accommodation will allow you the opportunity to develop a healthy balance between your academic studies, making friends and engaging with societies and events within the university and around Manchester. Students continue to inform us that their residential student experience is just as important as your academic pursuits. To ensure your experience is every bit as enriching as it should be, we offer support and advice through our Residential Life team.

Residential Advisors


Residential Advisors are an in-house team of second year, third year and postgraduate students who live in student accommodation.  As part of this role, the RAs will provide events which give you the chance to meet students from across your Student Living complex and assist in creating a sense of belonging within your accommodation. The RAs deliver and promote events, and run campaigns throughout the year.

The RAs deliver a varied weekly event programme which includes events such as a quiz, table tennis, games nights and a movie night, so you can meet new friends and socialise.

The role of the RA through events and offering a helping hand in meeting fellow students, will support an excellent student residential experience and a sense of belonging while living within Manchester Met accommodation. Who knows you may wish to become a Residential Advisor yourself in the future.
