Student life

Manchester is one of the UK’s best cities for students. It is a diverse and thriving city, blending a rich industrial past with a trailblazing future. There are people of all ages and all cultures building their lives here. But at its heart, the city retains a proud and distinctly Mancunian identity. The different districts of the city are like discrete villages, easy to get around, and within walking distance of each other. Each part of town has its own character, ambience and particular tribes. Manchester is a truly exhilarating place to come and learn – no wonder so many people stay here after they’ve finished studying.

Campus life

Our campus is designed around our students’ experience, providing them with some of the best learning and teaching facilities in the UK. The University is just a five-minute walk away from Manchester Oxford Road Railway Station. Everything in the city centre is within walking distance; from shops and restaurants to bars, train stations and local attractions, they are all close to one another. You can very easily navigate the city on foot, but if you want to give your feet a rest, there is no shortage of regular buses, taxis and trams.


We’ve created outstanding academic facilities with stylish lecture theatres, seminar rooms and study zones, equipped with the latest technology and specialist equipment to ensure that you get the most out of your studies.

Our five-storey library is open 24 hours a day during term time and there are touchdown zones all over campus, with PC access and free Wi-Fi throughout. We have several fantastic sport facilities right on our doorstep, offering a great range of health and fitness activities and exclusive membership deals for students of the University. To help our students keep healthy or get started in sport we have a health and wellbeing programme and a supportive environment to try activities for free on a drop-in basis.



We offer apartments, environmentally sustainable eco-townhouses and en-suite rooms, as well as budget options. Our student accommodation is conveniently located, either on campus or nearby, so that students are close to the buildings they are taught in as well as the library, Students’ Union and a range of food outlets. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, have access to a shared kitchen and laundry facilities and prices include insurance. All of our student rooms are in buildings with a 24-hour security presence, so that students can feel safe at home. Staff are on hand during the day to help students with queries, and all accommodation has a residential life team to provide support to you in the evenings and at weekends.



More than 70 professional, regulatory and statutory bodies work in partnership with the University to provide accreditation, approval and recognition of our degree programmes, ensuring that they are the right kind of courses for both the private and public sectors. We regularly review our courses, placing employability at the very heart of our curriculum.
