Private Halls
  • Generally offer a higher level of amenities than University Halls, at higher rents. Will be home to a more diverse mix of students and normally located close to campus.

View Private Halls in
  • A house share with a group of friends is often the lowest cost option and popular as the next step after living in Halls. Typically located in student friendly areas which require some travel to University.

View Houses in
  • A flat or apartment is similar to a house share on a smaller scale and will normally have one or two bedrooms. Ideal for smaller groups or couples.

View Flats in
  • Either a premium room in a Private Hall of Residence or a self-contained flat or apartment where all of the amenities are in one space. Typically the most expensive option.

Living in Manchester as a student

Sometimes referred to as the capital of the North West, Manchester is the second most populated area in the UK (after London).

Manchester is the third most visited place in the UK and is well-known for its architecture, culture, music, and sports clubs – what’s not to like? You may be surprised to learn, however, that it is also the place where scientists first split the atom, where the first stored-program computer was developed and where graphene was first produced.

The music scene in Manchester is strong, with the ‘Madchester’ scene being credited as launching the British indie music scene in the 1990s. Famous Manchester bands include Oasis, The Smiths, Joy Division, The Stone Roses, Elbow, M People, Simply Red and even Take That.

There are a couple of football teams based in Manchester too, you may have heard of them – Manchester United and Manchester City! It also hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2002, which has led to a thriving sports scene as well. Transport is also pretty good too, with plenty of cycle lanes, buses and trams – to make sure that you get to lectures on time!

Nightlife in Manchester is thriving too, with more than 500 licenced premises in the city centre alone – to cope with the 250000 people who tend to head there at the weekend. You won’t be short of places to wine and dine with your uni mates, or even make new friends when you’re out.

There are three Universities in Manchester, The University of Manchester and The Royal Northern College of Music. The city is also home to many students from The University of Salford.
Here you will find all types of student accommodation in Manchester including student houses, flats and student halls.
