What Are My Options?
UA92 are thrilled to be able to offer accommodation with Manchester Apartments at Academy Apartments and Westpoint. Academy Apartments is located directly opposite our campus, with Westpoint just a 10-15 minute walk away.
All living spaces at Academy Apartments and Westpoint are fully furnished and include all your utilities and Wi-Fi. Residents at Westpoint will benefit from access to a private on-site gym and communal space. In both accommodation options you will have your own private apartment with a kitchen, en-suite and shared laundry room facilities.
As well as practical, UA92 students will be grouped together at Westpoint and Academy Apartments, meaning you’ll easily get to know your fellow students.
Students are not obliged to stay at Academy Apartments or Westpoint and are free to look anywhere else. UA92 can direct you to alternative accommodation providers in the Manchester area and we’re happy to provide further information on that should you require. Just get in touch!

How Do I Apply?
The booking process is handled directly by Manchester Apartments.
To book your accommodation you’ll need your UCAS ID to hand. You can then contact Manchester Apartments directly at email@example.com (with UA92 in the subject line) or on 0161 228 6633 to begin the process. Manchester Apartments will then take you through the booking process for Academy Apartments and Westpoint.
As the accommodation agreement is between yourself and the provider, there will be a new set of terms and conditions, separate to that of UA92. You’ll only need to contact UA92 if you have any special requirements so that we can let Academy Apartments or Westpoint know.
What If I Have a Disability or Special Requirement?
We have ensured that there are rooms available that can cater for those who have a disability or certain special requirements.
Should you have other requests, such as wanting a room on a lower floor or a designated quieter room, they’ll do what they can to cater for this. We must point out that while Westpoint and Academy Apartments will try to cater for your requirements, this cannot always be guaranteed.
Where is Westpoint Located?
Westpoint is located on Chester Road. The building itself is around a 10-15 minute walk to the UA92 Campus. Within a couple of minutes walk you’ll find Trafford Bar Metrolink Station. Jump on a tram there and you’ll be at Old Trafford Metrolink Station, right next to our Campus, in less than a minute.
You can head into the City Centre on a tram in a few minutes or down to MediaCity UK in around 15 minutes. The area is well served by bus routes too and has designated cycling lanes to the campus.
There are plenty of shops nearby too, along with some great places to eat and drink.
Is there Security?
To enter the grounds of the building, you can only do so with a key fob or a door code. Only Westpoint residents will have a fob and the code. Upon entering the building itself, you’ll then need to use your fob again to get in. You’ll have keys to your own room. Each room will also have its own post box downstairs that is secured with a keyless code system.
There’s also a 24 hour Concierge Service in the lobby of the building. They’ll also take delivery of any parcels as well, so no more hunting down parcels after attempted deliveries! Westpoint also has an in-house maintenance team, so should you have something you think might need looking at, you can contact them as well.
The building is also comprehensively covered by CCTV for your safety.
Are there Laundry Facilities?
There are several laundry rooms, each with 6 washer/dryers in them. All the washer/dryers are free to use so no need to worry about having a handful of change with you every time you want to wash your clothes!
