Accommodation worries for next year? Help is on hand

We understand that where you’ll live next year and the people you live with is a big deal. 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’s still plenty of University Approved accommodation available with Manchester Student Homes. Don’t feel panicked, it’s best to take some time to have a think about things like where you want to live, how much you want to spend and how far you’re willing to commute to university. If you’re unsure, take a look at our ultimate guide to finding accommodation, or see what our content ambassadors Rhys, Lena and Lauren have to say about their accommodation searches.

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

Date:                     Tuesday 11th February

Time:                    2:30 – 4:30pm

Location:             MSH POD, the Student’s Union, Oxford Road

You can follow the event on Facebook. The Manchester Student Homes Team will also be there to help you (and hopefully your 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 offers free housing advice as well as a free contract checking service for students to make sure you understand what your contract 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 contract checked.
