  1. The campus

    The campus is not traditional in that the University is based very centrally within the city of Manchester, which is commonplace when it comes to modern universities. As such you’ll be inspired by this cosmopolitan metropolis on a daily basis as you go about your studies.

    The University has been committed to development and as a result has plenty of state-of-the art facilities including plenty of new buildings for the sciences and other fields. There is a fantastic library at the University which is open to all students, containing fantastic resources – in fact; it’s one of only five National Research libraries.

    Of course, no University would be complete without a Student Union, and Manchester’s is both vibrant and full of life. You can attend everything from music gigs to comedy nights, and there’s a full programme of events throughout the year.

    The University of Manchester is devoted to its provision of excellent sports and fitness facilities, and no matter what you’re interested in, you’ll find it when you’re living here with us at your Manchester University accommodation. For example, there’s the Armitage Sports Centre, the huge Manchester Aquatics Centre and a range of other facilities to suit all tastes including sports’ societies, an Athletic Union and more.

    Our University of Manchester accommodation is close by to campus so you’ll never miss out.

  2. Undergraduate study

    Consistently placed in the rankings as one of the world’s top 50 universities, the University of Manchester is the perfect place to study for your undergraduate degree.

    The many, many courses on offer will challenge you and allow you to apply critical thinking to thinking outside of the box, which will come in super handy for your future.

    You’ll be taught by real experts in each and every discipline. Approaches to learning will be varied and will range from lectures, to seminars, through to independent study, group work and even field trips – you’ll receive a truly well-rounded education.

    In our Manchester University accommodation you’ll be in the ideal place both physically and metaphorically to ace the first steps on your journey to future success.

  3. Postgraduate study

    Postgraduates are in great hands at the University of Manchester. The University specialises in being an excellent research facility, and so if you want to go down this route, you’ve come to the right place. Of course, there are plenty of opportunities for postgraduate study here and the brilliant and experienced staff will help guide and support you with a tailored path just for you.

    Taught Masters degrees are also an option, it just really depends what you’re looking to achieve.

    Your academic record, in addition to the career support that you’ll inevitably receive will ensure that you are among the most employable postgraduates in the country, and so you’ll be more than equipped to reach your future goals.

    Our University of Manchester accommodation provides you with the right base for you to really excel and push yourself to the limits. You’ll be close to campus so you can always access the great resources, and you’ll never be too far from any assistance you might be looking for.
