If you’re new to university or just returning for another year, you’ll know how many distractions day to day life can throw at you. For many of us, this means home security is at the bottom of our priority list.
Unfortunately, this means student houses can become an easy target as they’re often left insecure. For example, if you’re flat sharing, there are more electrical items to steal like laptops. Luckily, there are plenty of easy steps you can take to help deter burglars.
Firstly, it’s important to make sure everyone you’re living with is on the same page, so have a chat with your flatmates about getting in the routine of locking up. Making sure your flat is tidy and that any valuables or keys are out of sight is another good habit and if you’re planning on going away, take your valuable possessions with you and ask a neighbour or friend to collect any mail.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
