    I am hopefully starting uni at Manchester to study physics in September, but I made the mistake of never going to look at any accommodation! I'd like to live either in City or Fallowfield, but I can't figure out where's best. I'm quite quiet so i'm marginally worried about making friends, and I'd prefer self catered ensuite accommodation. Where do physics students live?! Help!


    I’m not a current student but in the exact same boat as you, and I've decided on Fallowfield. While City is far closer to the physics buildings, there are a lot of internationals and exchange students who tend to stick together and are not as openly social (at least from what I’ve read).

    Fallowfield is pretty far with a 15 min bike ride, but it’s hailed as the most social accommodation site so making friends won’t be any problem. The rent is cheap since superficially the apartments look like prison cells, and the rooms are small but it’s close to big supermarkets and the curry mile. In my physics interview/visit the guy mentioned Fallowfield a lot and said that it’s where most of the students reside.

    Pls just stay at whitworth park hall. Thank me later
