Parents and carers may also want to book onto a guided visit while their son or daughter is attending post-application interviews or visit days – some may have already been invited to one by the academic School that their son or daughter has applied to. On these days parents and carers will be reunited with their son or daughter after the event at approximately 4pm.

You can reserve a place on a guided visit by completing the guided visit booking form.

If you would like to book onto one of these tours, please complete the guided visit booking form indicating that you would like to attend an accommodation tour. Please note that we have a cap on the number of visitors who can sign up, in order to keep tour groups to a manageable size. If you cannot see the date you require, this will be because it is fully booked.

For more information about accommodation tours, please email tours@manchester.ac.uk.

Alternatively, the Accommodation Office holds an Open House Event every year to show visitors our halls of residence.
