    Apparently loads of people do this. My friend (a second year) goes to the met, and lives with someone from Uni of Manchester and Salford and apparently in their first year the guy from Salford spent most of his time in Manchester and was hardly ever in his Salford accommodation because he preferred living in Manchester much more.

    from the salford accomidation website:

    We place nursing students together as study and work patterns usually involve shifts and longer contracts. Most nursing students require a 52 week contract. There are a small number of courses starting in March – if we have rooms available at that time we will pleased to offer you accommodation.*

    if all your flatmates are nurses then then there mire likely to keep the noise down and be considerate of the hours your working think they put the nurses in the irwell flats. could always ask glfor quiet accomidation if you think its going to be a concern
    I understand that, but, I don't want to live with other Nurses. I don't want to be going back to the flat and talking about my course all the time. I was wondering whether I have to live in the specified nursing accommodation or can I live elsewhere? And if I can, would living in Castle Irwell be a good idea?

    I think they put nurses in with each other because of the contract lengh aswell. Aslong as you dont need the longer contract lengh i dont see why they wouldnt allow you to stayin the normal accom. (if you need the contract lengh IQ do 50 week contracts but it will probably be dead after the non nurses have gone) allot ofpele say irwells dead noisy other people say its fine think it depends what you want, id say it will defo be noisy at the weekend, could do their quiet accom in irwell if you were worried about sleeping but want the livliest when it suits you?

    I had an unconditional through yesterday to study Geography at Salford, I'm currently studying Renewable Energy at Glyndwr University (I bet you've never heard of it either) and I'm fed up of living in a quiet town and doing a course that I'm not really enjoying. I'm so excited to live in Manchester as I love it there, I just hope that the university lives upto my expectations too!
    I'm looking at living in IQ as it looks very similar to my current halls and is £10 a week cheaper too.

    Feel free to add me on facebook, would be good to get to know some people before I transfer!

    Hello everyone!
    Just firmed my offer with Salford, hoping to do Multimedia and Internet technology.
    I went up to the uni on the 28th to check it out and I was realy impressed (Although the weather helped ;P).
    Hoping to be staying in JL/EC as they seem to be close enough to the Newton building and Media City.
    Anyone else studying MIT?

    I've put Salford as my insurance. Unsure of what to put as my accommodation preferences. There was a guide around here somewhere... Anyone know which thread it's in?

    Edit: Found it, it was on the first page of this thread :facepalm:

    What have people picked for their accommodation? I noticed that there are 6 halls but there are only prices for 4 of them on the accom. website?

    Which accomodation is closest to the music campus? I think it's the adelphi building or something.

    The ones shown on the price list is the ones you can apply through the website for.

    Have you checked out the other private accommodations? I suggest that you should visit them first before booking it.
