Accommodation guarantee

The University of Manchester’s accommodation guarantee for international students sets us apart from other universities.

We guarantee a place in a University-owned (or managed) hall of residence to every international student for the full duration of their studies, provided they:

  • are coming to the University alone;
  • pay the overseas rate of tuition fees;
  • have submitted an application for accommodation by 31 August;
  • apply for accommodation in subsequent years for the full academic session, and by the February deadline;
  • have met the conditions of their offer if they are an undergraduate student, or have firmly accepted a place at the University by 31 August if they are a postgraduate student.

If you fall outside of these conditions, don’t worry; the Accommodation Office is likely to be able to find you a room, and if not, our staff will advise you on other options.

Study abroad students and exchange students

Study abroad and exchange (SAE) students who come to the University for a year as part of their degree are guaranteed a room in University-owned accommodation for their time in Manchester, provided they:

  • are coming to University alone;
  • have met the conditions of their offer;
  • are studying for the full academic session (ie September to June, or September to September);
  • have submitted an application for accommodation by 31 July.
