The University of Manchester has the largest number of places in university-owned accommodation in the UK, with more than 9,000 places in halls of residence - and all offer a high standard of living.

Postgraduate accommodation

The University of Manchester offers a greater number of university-owned postgraduate accommodation than any other university in the UK. A number of residences are reserved exclusively for postgraduates, and in other residences every effort is made to house postgraduate students together.

International guarantee

Full-time international postgraduates coming to the University alone are guaranteed a place in university-owned accommodation for the duration of their course. To be eligible for a place, you must ensure your application for accommodation is submitted and you have firmly accepted a place by August 31.

UK/EU postgraduates

Unfortunately, UK/EU postgraduates are not guaranteed placement, but in practice, a good proportion of postgraduate students are accommodated, including some with families.

If you are a UK or EU postgraduate and interested in living in University accommodation you need to complete and return an application form to the Accommodation Office as soon as you have accepted the offer of a place.

In addition to the University's halls of residence, Manchester has a sizeable stock of private accommodation for rent. Owned jointly by the Manchester universities, this is the city's only housing bureau that advertises University-approved accommodation.
