It’s a diverse city with lots of things to see and do. It’s got a great variety of areas, e.g the northern quarter which I would recommend. It has some cheap student bars which are good. The Trafford centre is amazing however it is a bit out of the way and you can’t quickly get there from the city centre. Salford quays and castle field and deansgate are also nice areas. There is quite a lot of crime in Manchester compared to other major cities but it doesn’t really feel less safe. Piccadilly gardens is a nice area and has lots of surrounding shops and restaurants. There is a lot of nightlife in Manchester with a variety of clubs to suit everyone

Manchester is an amazing vibrant city with something for everyone. There are so many nightclubs with music for everyone, whether it be 42s for the indie genre or Antwerp Mansion for techno and drum&bass. The shopping is endless as well from well known brands such as New Look and Topshop being in the Arndale Centre or more alternative brands in Afflecks in the Northern Quarter. The Northern Quarter is also a great place to bag yourself some cheap vintage clothing. Overall, whoever you are, Manchester will have something for you to enjoy.

For students the city is fantastic, there's so much to do and you'll never be bored. The transport system is pretty good and cabs aren't too expensive. You get all the amenities of a big city with Northern prices - especially for alcohol. Nights out are pretty cheap. Overall the people are lovely and it's just a great place to be.

Right in the city centre, surrounded by hundreds of bars, restaurants, shops and any other entertainment you could think of, all accessible by either a short walk or the £1 Megabus. Or maybe you just want to chill out in All Saints' little park or Piccadilly gardens. Everything's there, it's up to you to decide what you want to do!

Sometimes food shopping gets expensive as Tesco is always around the corner but if you find a Lidl or Aldi then it's really cheap, overall the university is a fantastic place

Brilliant city, get everything a city can offer but also very cheap. Whether you’re at UoM or MMU you’ll have a great university experience especially freshers. DO NOT MISS IT. And try as hard as you can to make sure you’re in halls in first year or you won’t really live the first year experience but it is also okay if you’re not, you’ll still have tonnes of fun

So many bars, and places to eat. I love how you can easily join clubs, and meet new people and people come from all over which is great to have friends from all over the country. And being able to live just outside the city centre in affordable housing is great too. I love it

It’s the best place for everything! Anything you think you want to do you can do in Manchester! If you live in fallowfield then it’s the perfect place for a student you can pre at the tower then head to the northern quarter or factory/fifth/ 42s which is personally my favourite. It’s all such good value for money and is my favourite city!

The University of Manchester is very close to the city centre and also to the halls of accommodation. The area around the uni is full of bars and pubs for the drinkers and fast-food restaurants for the eaters!

I think Manchester is in a great location. It has great links to the peak district and close by to other cities such as Liverpool and Sheffield. Strong rail links with London and Edinburgh are something I have taken advantage of since living in Manchester. The city itself is very accessible although my only critism would be that the tram that Manchester boasts about doesnt go to student areas which is a great shame!

A lot packed in Manchester. Cool seasonal things, like the christmas market and options of different nights out, lots of bands include Manchester on their tours - and nightbuses to get home after.
