Accommodation worries for next year? Help is on hand

We get that where you’ll live next year and who with is a big deal,  but no matter where you are in the process of choosing your accommodation for next year, Manchester Student Homes are on hand to help.

Still looking for accommodation or looking for housemates?

Don’t worry; there is still plenty of University Approved accommodation available with Manchester Student Homes. Don’t feel panicked, remember to have a think about things like where you want to live, how much you want to spend, how far are you willing to commute? Take a look at our Guide to finding accommodation, or see what our content ambassadors Rhys and Lena have to say about their accommodation searches.

One thing to consider is that larger accommodation is on average more affordable. So if you’re thinking you might like some extra housemates come along to the Manchester Student Homes Find a Housemate event. It will be a great opportunity to meet other students who are also looking for housemates.

Date:                     Tuesday 26th February

Time:                    2.45pm – 5pm

Location:             The Atrium, 1st Floor, University Place, Oxford Road

Follow the event on Facebook. The Manchester Student Homes Team will also be there to help you (and hopefully you’re new housemates!) find your ideal home for next year.

Sorted your accommodation? Make sure you know what you’re signing up for

Once you’ve found the house of your dreams make sure you have a good read of your contract. Manchester Student Homes offer a free contract checking service for students to make sure you understand what your contact means and to make sure everything is above board and legit.

You can call into the office in Fallowfield Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm or email manchesterstudenthomes@manchester.ac.uk. Just a couple of things to help make sure they can check your contract effectively:

  • Make sure you have read the contract and write down any questions you have.
  • If you need a guarantor, please bring your form with you/include it in the email.

Remember, don’t sign or hand over any money before you have had your contact checked.
