Wherever you live, your accommodation is one of the most important parts of your life as a student and you should feel happy and safe where you live.

Many students will live in University halls during their first year, but may wish to consider the private rented sector for successive years. Taking on a tenancy agreement, choosing potential housemates, and picking a property you'll live in for a year are big decisions, and we want you to feel supported to make these decisions comfortably.

The University has an arrangement with Manchester Student Homes, an organisation offering free, expert advice to students in Manchester and Salford. The organisation is owned and managed by the universities in Manchester and works in students' interests. As well as offering advice, Manchester Student Homes ensure that landlords wishing to rent to students are fully accredited, meaning they have to comply with strict requirements.

You can access their services, including searching for properties, on their website.
