About the hall

PLEASE NOTE Opal Hall is a "High Demand" Hall, so not every applicant is guaranteed to be successful.

Opal Hall is a modern, self catered, en-suite postgraduate residence. It close to the main campus and the City Centre.

Accommodation is provided by flats of 6-8 study bedrooms, each with fully equipped kitchen/common room with microwave, cooker, and fridge freezer. There is a launderette on site and all communal areas are non-smoking. Ethernet link in all study bedrooms.

Opal Hall benefits from a strong Pastoral presence which helps encourage a friendly atmosphere and vital support.

The active Residents' Association help to create a community spirit through the organization of social functions throughout the year.

Within two minutes walk of the Sugden Sports Centre and the Manchester Aquatics Centre.

Opal Hall is owned by Greystar and is leased from them by the University of Manchester. Residents in halls leased by the University of Manchester enjoy the same terms and conditions in the licence agreement as residents living in halls wholly owned by the University and benefit from University provided on-site residential pastoral care teams.

Please note that we charge for lost keys - £30 for room keys, £10 for mailbox keys and £10 for swipe cards - so please look after them.

Internet and WiFi

In some communal areas in University of Manchester halls of residence there are University access points for wireless. These will always show up as University when your computer scans for local wifi. You can use these to connect to the Internet. Students are prohibited from setting up their own wireless access points in hall. Please note wifi access does not generally extend to bedrooms. However all bedrooms do have wired access to the Ethernet - for more information on this service consult the HORNET pages.
