There is a great selection of student accommodation in Manchester. Student residences offer students a more independent style of living while they are studying in Manchester. Student residences offer self catering accommodation sharing living space with other students. It is a great way for students to make friends and socialise with other students both from the UK and all over the world. Student residences are often quite large buildings which offer other facilities such as well as accommodation such a laundry room, reception and security services and games rooms/social areas.
Because Manchester is lucky enough to have four world class universities the city is very orientated to student living. Student life in Manchester is great! There is plenty to do and lots of events arranged especially for students. Manchester is popular with students from all over the world so the nationality mix here is great! The cost of living in Manchester is also lower than London so it’s a great student option.
Here at IH Manchester we work with several different residences to offer our students a variety of options. Student residences offer different accommodation options, en-suite bedrooms in shared apartments being a very popular option. Students have the own private bedroom with en-suite shower room. They then share a kitchen and living space with other students in an apartment. There is usually between 3-6 bedrooms per apartments. Most residences will supply bedding and kitchen equipment, but some don’t so it is always worth checking! If a residence does not supply bedding or kitchen equipment we can arrange to have a kitchen and bedding pack delivered to the residence for the student prior to their arrival.
Student residences are only suitable for students aged 18 and over and there is often a minimum stay of at least 4 weeks.
