There’s going to be nobody there to make sure you leave for uni on time and feed you a healthy well balanced meal at least once a day. Nobody to wash your socks and check what time you will be home and ask who you are going out with. You may swiftly learn how much you take home life for granted when moving away BUT there are some bonuses to being a student.
Anyway who needs all of that when you’ve got…
A student card – Yes, this will become your best friend, your right hand man and your confidant. It will be so firmly fixed to your hand it may as well be a part of you. Student discount is available almost everywhere too so do take full advantage, it can make a huge difference to what you can get your hands on with your weekly budget.
Poundshops – There’s no time to be snobby on a student budget. Poundshops are big money savers on branded cleaning and beauty products and you will be amazed at what you can pick up for a quid.
Got a freshers fancy dress party to go to? check out your local poundshop for supplies.
The Library – This will fast become your second home to your halls and no doubt there will be a love hate relationship going on here especially around exam season.
Pasta – If you don’t know how to cook yet, you’d better learn, and fast. Pasta is usually the staple student meal.
It’s cheap and you can jazz it up in so many different ways. Spag bol, lasagne, carbonara or a quick pasta bake are all easy cook recipes and will keep you full.
Your social life – Yes of course you have to study and will have exams you need to work hard at but you will be thankful for your room mate badgering to take a break and have a night out.
Whether it’s a night out playing pub gold of just meeting up for a coffee and a chat, don’t lock yourself away you will need these little breaks.

I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
