If you are coming to study in Manchester next semester (or this semester) you need to be looking for your Manchester student accommodation already now. Finding accommodation close to campus, especially at a price suitable for a student budget, is no easy task and the good places are taken fast. So the sooner you get it done the better place you will get.
What to avoid when searching for a studio in Manchester
The most important thing to avoid when searching for accommodation as a student is not knowing exactly what you are going to pay in total living expenses every month BEFORE you rent a room, studio or student apartment. As a student you are on a limited budget, and not being clear about how much your accommodation will cost you when all costs are counted can make your student year(s) much less comfortable.
The second most important thing to avoid when searching for your Manchester University student accommodation is a place located far away from campus. Finding the closest student accommodation to Manchester University is much more important as you think, because the daily trips with public with public transport will add up and eat what you save living outside the city centre. If you are thinking about saving on rent by living further from Manchester University, then remember to calculate that you will not only be paying for transport to class — what about social activities in the evening and on weekends, those add up too. In most cases it is worth paying a little more in rent close to campus to save public transport costs.
The last thing you definitely want to avoid is living in an older building. If you’re an international student, you might not be aware that the British winter is long and cold, so the high heating costs in the UK can be a substantial extra bill if the building you live in are not efficiently insulated. The bet option is to have a set price of heating and other utilities so you can avoid such unpleasant surprises completely.
