Manchester Fresher's Week 2013
Welcome to Manchester! For the next few years the capital of the North will be your home from home, and although within time you will feel like you own the city, right about now you probably feel like a small fish in a very big pond. Let skiddle help you then, with our essential welcome to student life in Manchester...
With 100,000 students spread between three universities, Manchester boasts one of the largest student populations of any city in Europe. The University of Manchester, with its spectacular Vicorian neo-gothic architecture and world class facilities, is the city's main student hive, with the main campus located on Oxford Road and further buidlings in the city centre. A stone's throw away from The University of Manchester, also on Oxford Road, is MMU (Manchester Metropolitan University), while The University of Salford lies a five minute bus ride out of the other side of the city centre.
After freshers week is done be sure to visit our Manchester What's on Guide and make sure you get the most out of Manchester!
