Student Life

Residential Life



Manchester University was established as a residential college, emphasizing and valuing the total educational experience gained from living in the halls. We encourage all students to get involved in campus life, clubs and organizations. College is like anything else in life; the more you put into it the more you get out of it. Our most successful and satisfied students are those that have engaged in a well rounded college experience. This site has been designed to provide you with some basic information regarding our residence halls, activities, and job opportunities.

The Manchester University Department of Residential Life is committed to fostering a safe, comfortable living/learning environment which supports academic as well as social and community development. The department also supports growth and development through campus and hall involvement, celebrating diversity, and providing the opportunity for responsible decision making.
