There is pretty much an app for everything these days so why not use them to your advantage? Whether it’s for taking notes, keeping fit or stopping you texting THAT ex, there is an app for you to make university life easier.
A meditation and mindfulness app that is said to help reduce stress and anxiety. They say ‘ meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better. Headspace is meditation made simple. We’ll teach you the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness in just a few minutes a day’
You can get a 10-day free trial to see if you really benefit from it.
Find My iPhone
A pretty self-explanatory app. It can locate your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or your MAC on a map. If you lose your phone on a night out you can remotely lock it with a passcode which will put a custom message on the lock screen.
If you just lose it in your student digs and can’t for the life of you find it, You can play an alarm for two minutes at full volume (even if your device is actually on silent)
This is a free app for housemates to keep track of money when splitting bills, rent, food and even nights out. Everybody will be billed for their share and it will be sent directly to the provider.
It’s a great way to give you peace of mind instead of trying to chase money.
An app we think everybody should have as standard anyway. You simply add friends and family from your contact list so they can see your location and status in real time. You can let them know if you feel nervous while out and about at any point and there is also an ‘alert your local’ police feature if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.
Another one we think should be standard on students phones. We’ve all been guilty of drunk dialing, well now you can be safe from that ‘morning after the night before’ dread.
The drunk mode app has 5 features…
Stop Drunk Dialing – The call-blocker hides select phone contacts when you want to get drunk so you can’t contact these selected numbers for up to 12 hours.
Find My Drunk – The friend finder allows you to track your drunk friends via GPS so you don’t lose them when you are out partying.
Breadcrumbs – Shows you where you went last night after that crazy party or bar crawl.
Find A Safe Ride Home – Quickly find a ride home or walking directions to your friends locations.
Hotspots – Find the best parties around you in select cities & colleges with our heat maps that display in real time how busy an area is and the girl to guy ratio.
Live/real time transporting updates every minute to keep you up to date when travelling from A to B.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
