For more information and bookings:
The largest student population in Europe lives in Manchester so the city offers a variety of types of accommodation at different price levels. The housing market gets very busy in September / October so look and book early if you can, however we strongly advise you not to sign a contract or pay any money until you have visited the property.
If you can visit the city now to secure your accommodation that is recommended; if you will need to look for accommodation when you arrive, try to allow some time before the academic year starts and book a hotel or hostel ahead of time where you can stay while you are looking.
To help you find safe, secure and legal housing the University has a relationship with Manchester Student Homes, they accredits accommodation for students which meets their code of standards, and offers a variety of information and advice services including contract-checking, advice and advocacy and support.
