    Can you stay in halls of residence for a just one term?
    Thank you for your message, and your interest in our University accommodation.

    We are only able to offer University accommodation from September 2018 to students attending for the full academic year (minimum of 42 week contract).

    If you are requiring accommodation from September for just 1 term, unfortunately we would not be able to offer you a room in the University halls.

    However you will still be eligible to apply for private sector accommodation and would recommend that you contact our partner student housing service Manchester Student Homes to enquire further about this. They can be contacted directly on 0161 275 7680 or [email protected] r.ac.uk

    Manchester Student Homes are co-owned by Manchester Metropolitan University and support our students with finding suitable accommodation in the private sector. They run an accreditation scheme for local landlords, letting agencies and also private halls of residence. They offer various free services to students, including contract checking and expert advice on renting private accommodation/mediation with landlords.

    Manchester Student Homes have a useful search engine on the main page of their website, which enables you to search for private student accommodation in line with your specific requirements. Hopefully you will be able to find suitable short term accommodation using the services of Manchester Student Homes.

    If you are only attending Manchester Metropolitan for the Spring term (from January 2019) then we may be able to offer you a room in the University accommodation. While we do expect to be fully booked at the start of the academic year, we typically receive cancellations over the course of the first term, and then have rooms available to offer for the Spring term. Please note that as these vacancies are as a result of cancellations, there is no guarantee where they may be – we will not be able to confirm this until nearer the time.

    I hope that this information is useful to you. If you have any further questions about University accommodation, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 0161 247 2958 or [email protected]
