Or maybe you have found a group but you don’t quite know what your options are? This is a short overview of the type of student accommodation available to students in Salford and Manchester to help you find the perfect home.


Halls of Residence

Halls of residence are especially great for Freshers and International students coming to Manchester and Salford because it gives you a good opportunity to make friends before moving into a student house or a student flat in your second year of University. They often come with all bills inclusive, meaning hassle-free living in your new environment.

For students in Manchester and Salford there is a large variety of student halls with different prices ranging from £75 per week up to £199 for a self-contained studio flat in halls of residence to meet different budgets and different needs.

House Share

This is the most popular type of accommodation for students in Manchester and Salford after their first year in University. The size of the houses can vary from 3 bedrooms up until 12 bedrooms, so there is something for everyone. It is a great option for you if you have found a group of friends that you would like to share a house with.

Again the prices can vary greatly from anything between £50 per person per week up to £125 per person per week depending on location, size, style of property and whether the landlord offers an all-bills-inclusive package.

Flat Share

Flat shares are great for smaller groups of students, usually not more than 3, who are looking for more privacy. This option tends to be more expensive though compared to sharing a student house and it may be more suitable for students in their final years of their studies.
