All your hard work has paid off and you are now about to begin an exciting new chapter in your life. As an undergraduate, this will likely be your very first time living away from home. There’s lots to consider when moving out and it can be a challenging time for some. Here are answers to some of the questions you probably have circling around your head.
What Will My Room Be Like?
Typically, halls of residence rooms come equipped with a single bed, desk, and some storage. The rooms can vary in size depending on your chosen student halls. You will likely have a communal bathroom or an en-suite, again depending on your choice of halls.
What Should You Bring With You?
You should firstly check what your student halls already comes with, that way you can make a list of what’s needed. Many student halls already come equipped with kettles, microwaves, irons etc… so you are likely to save money on needing to purchase any of those items. It’s worth bringing a few items that provide you with good memories so that you always have something to remind you of your loved ones.
It can be daunting for some but with many halls of residence you don’t get to choose who you live with. The average halls of residence will be the home to a few hundred students so there will be lots of people around in the same situation as you are. You will soon get to know your flatmates and it might be helpful to suggest going out somewhere early on so that you can soon get to know each other.
Internet Access and TV
Most student halls will provide you with internet access, this is usually included in your weekly bill. You shouldn’t need worry about any unexpected bills. If there is anything you are unsure of then always check with your accommodation directly to find out.

Where do you want to go?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
