What Uni? Student Choice Awards 2020


Manchester has an enormous student population (the largest in Europe in fact), and there is plenty of accommodation aimed at the student market. Whether you are looking for shared housing or purpose built student apartments, we work in partnership with a number of companies to get you the best deals.


How has COVID-19 affected accommodation for September?

We understand that you will have many questions about your accommodation for the next academic year.

Everyone will be in a unique situation and so, although we will not be able to provide all of the answers for your questions, we would like to offer some guidance.

There is no right answer, only what is right for you. Speak to your friends and family and make the decision which is best for you.

We recommend you speak directly to the accommodation provider you are considering and ask them all the questions you can about the current situation – bear in mind that they may not have all the answers at this stage!

Please see link to Covid FAQ for our full guidance.
