Moving out of halls: Your area guide

By BzBarlow 21 Nov 2017

Location, location, location... it's key when looking for a house. Manchester is a vibrant city full of students and there are plenty of areas to choose between when looking for Private Housing. 

It's not just simply about picking your favourite place though, there are things you should take into account, such as: 
 - How far you want to be away from uni? 
 - How much will it cost to commute?
