I Go to Manchester Uni, if you want the best time you have to live in fallowfield, its the student village a 20 min bus journey from uni, but everyone lives there. Its got a few pubs on campus, but also has loads of them locally too. Its main accomodation are Owens Park and Oak house. These are cheap and cheerfull, crap accomodation but are where its at. more up market accomoadtion, such as richmond park are avaliable. Check the brochure and aim for fallowfield if u want a good first year. most ppl move there in second year and get houses too. I reckon the city campus ppl have a good time too, but not like in fallowfield. If you want to be close to uni, which wasnt an issue for me becaus the bus service is amazing and cheap!! then city campus may suit.
