Relocating to Manchester

If you need to move home in order to take up a position at The University of Manchester, our dedicated relocation service is here to help you.

We know that uprooting family, pets and possessions to a new home, area and schools, perhaps even a new country, can be a daunting prospect. Thankfully, it can also be hugely exciting and rewarding – especially when you’re coming to the thriving, friendly and cosmopolitan city of Manchester.

To reduce the pressures of moving, we offer a professional relocation service to eligible new staff members at the University. With a range of services and support to choose from, you can tailor your relocation package to meet your needs.


You may be eligible for our relocation service if you are:

  • appointed to a post at grade six or above, for a period of two years or more;
  • currently based more than 40 miles (65 km) away from Manchester;
  • relocating your main residence to the area.

If you are eligible, we will confirm this in our offer of employment and provide full details of how we can help you relocate to Manchester.
