Housing Advice

Manchester Student Homes is a department of The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. We work in partnership with The University of Salford and UCEN, BIMM, ICT, SFS and BPP. We are here to make sure you find good quality student accommodations.

We run a landlord accreditation scheme and can help if you have any problems with your accommodation provider or if you have any issues living off campus. Our services are free to students attending one of our institutions.
