Accommodation for students with families

We can help international students with families in their search for accommodation close to the University campus.

We have a very limited supply of accommodation specifically for students with families, and demand exceeds supply, so this type of accommodation cannot be guaranteed.

Email us at accommodation@manchester.ac.uk and we’ll try and help.

Non-University accommodation

Areas surrounding the University provide many rental opportunities, which offer a variety of accommodation options.

We also have our own service called Manchester Student Homes, which is based on campus to help and advise you on finding private accommodation.

Choosing the right location

We advise new students with children to travel to Manchester alone, in advance of starting their courses, to secure accommodation, before bringing their families to join them.

Deciding where to live may be affected by a range of factors including the proximity to schools and other family-focused services. 

Many current students with families are happy to pass on their knowledge to new arrivals, while other more formal support is available through the International Office, the Accommodation Office and the International Society.

You can find more information for students with children on the My Manchester website.
