Accommodation


Why us?

Where you live at university can have a big impact on your student experience. A positive environment will influence your well-being and state of mind, which in turn will enable your social and academic life to flourish.

We aim to facilitate such an environment, and we believe the benefits of choosing Manchester University accommodation include:-

  • The variety of hall options: you have a choice of catered or self-catered, single or mixed sex halls and flats. There is also the option of ensuite, standard or standard with wash basin rooms; a limited amount of family accommodation is also available.
  • An extensive range of facilities across the halls: computer clusters on site, sports facilities, music rooms, launderettes, libraries, on-site bars and Junior Common Rooms and Residents Associations organising sports and social events throughout the year.
  • The student experience: life in halls offers the opportunity to encounter people from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, to develop social skills and widen intellectual horizons; more particularly, it faciliatates learning outside the academic environment.
  • An in-house teams of Residential Life Officers (RLOs) and Residential Life Advisors (RLAs), on-call in each residence to provide welfare support and guidance whenever required.
  • Provision for special requirements: many halls have adapted rooms and facilities for students with disabilities; catered halls can offer special diets; assistance for other medical conditions is also available.
  • All-inclusive hall fees: hall fees include utility bills, internet (wifi/cable connection) and contents insurance. Catered halls provide two meals a day Monday to Friday and some offer weekend catering too.
  • A high level of security: the majority of halls have swipe card access systems and each campus has a comprehensive CCTV network and 24-hour security.
  • Provision for special requirements: many halls have adapted rooms and facilities for students with disabilities; catered halls can offer special diets; assistance for other medical conditions is also available. Further information is obtainable from the Accommodation Office's Disability Co-ordinator.
  • Excellent transport links: our halls lie on one of the busiest bus routes in Western Europe, with buses at least every 2 minutes during the daytime, and services departing almost 24/7. Cheap annual bus passes are also available specifically for students. Cycling is also a popular mode of transport, and there are quiet and off road cycle routes between halls and the University's main campus, and 'Dutch-style' cycle lanes on Oxford Road, with secure bike storage in most halls and on campus.
