ResLife at Manchester

Who are we?

ResLife's focus is all about you. The ResLife team are here to ensure that you get all the support and guidance you need throughout your stay in our Halls of Residence. Moving to somewhere new and starting university can be a daunting experience for many, but ResLife are here to make your transition into university life as smooth as possible and are your first port of call in halls for any problems you may have. Whether you encounter an issue which relates to your accommodation, your academics, your safety or your personal life, ResLife are here to point you in the right direction of where you can get support and are always keen to be a helping hand.

The ResLife team live onsite in halls. Each hall has their own ResLife Officer, as well as several ResLife Advisors, who are usually assigned a certain block or number of flats to support. University staff and postgraduate students make up the team, therefore they understand the demands of university life and can empathise with most problems students in halls may face.

As well as being on call for any issues or incidents, your ResLife Advisors will hold regular flat meetings to ensure that everyone is happy and involved in the residential experience.

Make sure to say hi! They're a friendly bunch and you'll be seeing them around your hall most days.
