Where to Stay?
An abundance of food and drink chains, high-street amenities and a vibrant nightlife, coupled with its rich sporting and musical history, has seen Manchester become a hub for young minds around the UK. It has a student population of nearly 100,000, with several prestigious higher education institutions found throughout the city. Towards the city centre, you’ll find the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), with Salford University, Royal Northern College of Music and UFCB just a short distance away.
Unite Students’ excellent student accommodation in Manchester is found at choice locations within the city centre, perfect for students studying at Manchester Universiy. Piccadilly Point and Mill Point are right next door to Manchester University’s main campus, perfect for early morning lectures. Both are walking distance from the city centre where you’ll find restaurants, bars, the Arndale shopping centre and everything you need to fall in love with your university city.
Not too far away is our Manchester Metropolitan University student accommodation, where we have seven prime locations surrounding MMU campus and the Royal Northern College of Music, offering you plenty of choice.
