Going to university is one of the most exciting moments in life as it’s often your first time away from home and a first taste of adult life.

Now you’re becoming a Salford student, you can find the type of student accommodation that suits your requirements best. It’s important to remember that where you choose to live will have a big impact on your university life, as many students make their best friends in their first year accommodation. So, what different types of Salford University student accommodation options are there available?
Private Halls – Private accommodation for students is purpose-built, so everything has been made to meet the needs of its residents. You’ll find a private bedroom with shared communal spaces, providing a great balance between social living and privacy. This is usually the most affordable option and isn’t university affiliated meaning you have more options about what size flat you want to live in i.e. studio apartment, 2 bed or a 6 bedroom flat.
University halls – You’ve probably heard of this one before. Expect to be centrally located, and they are often the cheapest option, but be prepared to live with lots of other students and you may not get a choice of location.
Private Renting – The more expensive option of student accomodation that excludes bills and internet access. If you are a mature student, or wish to skip the student halls experience altogether, renting private accommodation could be the way forward. These rental properties tend to be further away from the university, and you’ll need to manage the property and utilities yourself.
Making the right choices for student accommodation when heading to Salford University is very important, and the whole process should be as simple and stress free as possible. Private student accommodation offers the solution to this.
Location – Bramall Court was specially chosen for its location, just a five minute walk from the University of Salford’s Adelphi campus, with easy public transport links into Manchester City Centre too.
Affordability – We know cost is a big factor when it comes to choosing student accommodation, and it shouldn’t break the bank, which is why bills and internet costs are included. No need to worry about nasty shocks at the end of the month
Experts to take care of you – The last thing you want to worry about when you’re concentrating on studying and socialising is a leaky tap or dodgy boiler. Private accommodation providers have specialists on hand to fix any problems you may face – they won’t do your washing for you though!
Lots to choose from – Rather than one size fits all, private accommodation suits a wide range of student’s needs, whether you want a one-bed apartment with an en suite or studio to a cluster flat for a group of friends.
Perks and included extras – Private accommodation also comes with some free perks, like extra fast wifi as standard, furnished rooms and organised events by the residence teams.
