Staying in Manchester

Travelling abroad or from your home town to Manchester and living at an accommodation during the term time is a new experience many students deal with, especially the international students. As the course start date nears, we are in a rush to prepare all the right sets of clothes, travel documents, and other essential items. Though managing and booking housing at Manchester for your stay during the course is at the top of our checklist.

Gladly, the University of Manchester provides one of the best accommodation facilities for students with all basic amenities and support. Their housing properties are located at different places, near to different university campuses, with accessibility to bus stops, supermarkets, and restaurants. UoM accommodations are situated at Victoria Park, Fallowfield, and City campus. Within these areas are located different halls of residence such as George Kenyon hall, Ashburne hall, and Brook hall. All of these student properties are budget-friendly and come with lots and lots of student activities to make the most of your student life, providing opportunities for socializing, networking, and making new friends from across the globe. The halls are available as private (en-suite), shared, and also suitable for families (couples)- The Hormniman House. There are also options available for students to select from catered and self-catered types of accommodation. The University residencies are partnered with ResLife, which organises a range of frequent events and activities to keep students engage and have fun while they are at UoM. The only con of these accommodations is that they get booked very quickly, so you have to make a swift decision on choosing the hall for your residence and apply therein in advance, just to avoid the hustle later. Since UoM halls have a range of flexible prices per week and payments can be made in instalments, they are suitable for students to finance their living expenses as well.

Apart from this, there are many other student housings available at UoM that are managed by other private agencies. These student accommodations are available as en-suite, private (studio apartments), and shared. They are located at different places around the UoM ranging at different prices per week. The properties also meet student budgets and most of them are near university campuses, city-centre, and supermarkets. Some famous student accommodations among students are Vita Student living, Ropemaker court, Dwell, and iQ student accommodation. There are also some student housing agencies available that can assist students in booking their residencies with ease, such as Unilodgers, Amber students, and There are many other private properties also available for students in the form of a flat, owned by private landlords, these are also some affordable, well maintained, and located near to campuses. Such properties can be looked at via the SpareRoom site.

While there are many options for staying at Manchester suiting to our lifestyle and routine, I would really recommend booking these properties in advance especially the student accommodations if you are really looking for some good and active student life, and all reviews and information are available online are satisfactory. As they get booked out fast, hence do not leave them to the last.
