How we select locations

We select each property on the basis of convenience, facilities, standard of accommodation, and affordability, always with you – the student – in mind.

We only choose locations that are close to campuses or faculty buildings – places with good choices of amenities and easy access to public transport.

And we provide a range of accommodation to suit every student: from fully-furnished one-bed apartments, to spacious studios and cluster flats that are ideal for groups of friends.


The whole point of being a student is being able to study. That’s why all our buildings have 100Mb/s Wi-Fi as standard – handy for your social media updates, your Netflix binges, and you shopping too!

Our accommodation is fully managed, so you won’t have to deal with utility bills or spend hours getting connected to gas, electricity, or broadband. It’s all sorted. Less hassle, more time to focus on your work and your play.

Property Experts

The one thing you need when you’re studying hard is a service you can trust. No worries. What you don’t want is the pain of fixing a dodgy boiler, a leaky tap, or a flickering light.

That’s why Mears Student Life is such a safe bet. Property maintenance and facilities management is how we made our name. We’ve been working with local authorities, private landlords, and educational establishments for over 30 years.

All of our student accommodation is served by fully-qualified engineers and technicians. When things go wrong, we get it fixed. Fast.

Jump on in

Start searching now. Just register your details and get going. You’ll find somewhere fast. It’ll be everything you need for the next year, the next three years, or however long you need. It’ll be exceptional value, too, because we know money doesn’t grow on trees. We want you to be studying in comfort, in safety, and in a little bit of style.

We want you to be able to enjoy this precious time. All we ask is that you look after your new home and respect the people around you, whether they are fellow students, educational staff, or joe public.


Fully Furnished

Your apartment/room will come fully furnished to a high standard, all ready for you to move in. No moving-van headaches for you.

Fully Managed

We'll take care of all the day-to-day maintenance, cleaning, and general problem-solving within the building for you. Just give us a shout.

All Bills Included

You'll have enough to concentrate on once you start your studies, so we'll take care of the boring stuff. Your monthly rent will include all utilities.

High-Speed Broadband

Whether it's a big pending assignment or just a Netflix-and-chill session, you'll have all the megabytes you could ever want.

Prime Location

Uni is about much more than just going to lectures and studying in the uni library. When you live with us, you'll be near all the extra-curricular fun.

Building security and standards

Either a building is up to scratch or it isn’t. We never compromise on your safety. We run thorough safety-regulations compliance checks on every single property. All buildings meet the standards that are required by the Accreditation Network UK (ANUK).

Security is a priority too. Common parts and entry points are monitored by CCTV, and members of our team are always on-site during the day. You can also call us 24/7 for any after-hours queries.

Where are we?

Our Locations


Bramall Court is our student residence in Salford, just outside Manchester city centre. The University of Salford’s Adelphi campus is a five-minute walk from our front door, and the main campus is around a 12-minute walk. Our building is a 15-floor development with 346 bed spaces in total.

You have three options when it comes to choosing your room: standard, large, or extra large. You’ll be in a shared apartment with between two and four bedrooms – ideal for socialising and making friends, but also with enough privacy to chill out and study on your own whenever you want or need to. As well as the co-living spaces with your shared apartment, you’ll also have access to a laundry room and a communal lounge. Other perks include a 24-hour security service, plus a resident’s parking permit if you have a car.

Don’t let the name fool you: inside you’ll find modern, cleanly decorated spaces that are ideal for student living, with different options to suit different tastes and needs. In summer 2017, we completed a £3 million refurbishment project to breathe new life into this lovely listed building, with 409 rooms for you to choose from.

Outside of your apartment, you’ll have access to communal facilities: a bright and spacious common room with a big TV, comfy seats, vending machines, and even a full-size pool table and ping-pong tables. The Old Mill is in Dundee City Centre, putting you within a six- or seven-minute walk from the University of Dundee and Abertay University campuses, and around the same distance from the shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, coffee shops, and live music venues.
