Housing Advice

Manchester Student Homes is a department of The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. We are here to make sure you find good quality student accommodation.

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 service is completely free and is also available for students studying at The University of Salford, RNCM and The Manchester College. 

The International Friendly Standard has been created by Manchester Student Homes to recognise those landlords and private halls who provide a fair and transparent service to international students in regards to bookings and contractual terms, as well as going that extra mile in the level of service they provide to international students.
