Why choose Ashburne Hall?
Ashburne has a rich history with beautiful surrounding gardens.
You'll enjoy shared common areas, including a music room, a library and a lovely dining room where you have your meals.
In advance of new halls being built in Fallowfield, about which we have entered public consultation, we are letting you know that subject to the approval by Manchester City Council we aim to demolish the Owens Park Hall of Residence starting in late 2023 and continuing through 2024. At varying times this will create some disturbance to some areas neighbouring the site and should be borne in mind when accepting an offer for accommodation in Ashburne Hall.
