The largest city in the North of England, Manchester offers students the vibrancy of modern urban living with world-class entertainment, enviable retail options, buzzing bars and clubs, and plenty of green spaces to refresh outside of your Manchester student house. Students from The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Royal Northern College of Music number over 75,000, making the city’s student community vast and lively. Victorian red-brick buildings meet pearly glass lobbies along Salford Quays, perfectly capturing the heritage and blend of old and new felt through the city streets. Manchester student houses are equally as diverse, ranging from homely terraced houses to modern complexed. After exploring the many streets and retail, food and street establishments that occupy them, make sure to enjoy the spectacle that is watching a football match at Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium, or just sit back and relax in your student house. We highly recommend bookings viewings for Manchester student houses in November, with a lot of the student accommodation in the city being booked before the Christmas break.
All three universities are just south of the city centre, so most student houses are located here. Student houses in Fallowfield are most popular, along with the Curry Mile. Over 50% of residents in these two parts of the city study at one of the three major universities. Click here for more guidance on where to live in Manchester as a student.
