Uni life can become full on at the speed of light. You leave home and move into your new accommodation, have to sort out all of your belongings and make your room feel homely, then freshers week hits and along comes a week long drink and dance fest. And to top it all off, after all that carnage, you actually have to start studying and attending lectures.
Then come the coursework, dissertations and work placements and of course, while all of this is going on you are still managing to turn up to house parties and nights out because, well… FOMO!
Sometimes you will need to take a break and we’re not talking sitting in your jogging bottoms scrolling Instagram for hours on end here, oh no. Actual chill time can do your health and wellbeing the boost it may so desperately need at what can be an incredibly stressful and busy time.
If you don’t have the luxury of a bath, take a long shower. Try a shower gel/bath soak filled with lavender for all the sleepy vibes.
Put on some soothing music and your comfiest pj’s/loungewear and light a candle. If you’re not allowed candles, try fairy lights or a lamp. Get out your favourite book, Crochet or whatever chilled activity you like and spend some time away from everything else. No distractions!
I’m afraid this also means turning off your phone. Don’t be tempted to just ‘check’ facebook. We all know you will be knee deep in your best friends, cousins, boyfriends, brothers pictures from school in no time at all.

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.
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.
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.
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.
