EXCELLENT STUDY ENVIRONMENT

Coniston has been recently refurbished and offers accommodation in individual study rooms. The bedrooms are spacious, with lots of natural light and good central heating. We also have larger en-suite rooms which are available on request. Bed linen, duvets and towels are provided and laundered as part of the service we offer.

Our computer room is open 24-hours with internet access from your own laptop or using one of our PCs.

But an environment is more than just physical facilities. Coniston is a rich mix of students from all the main universities and colleges in Manchester. Students in Coniston come from a variety of disciplines – law, arts and humanities, medicine, the sciences, business & commerce, journalism and engineering. They also come from a wide range of countries and cultures, which ensures that they can benefit greatly from broader interaction and acquire an understanding of different cultures and ways of living. Coniston Hall has both postgraduate students and students from all years at university. Having second and final year students in Coniston gives first year students the support and back-up of older students to build on their experiences.

Coniston is a wonderful place where to spend time in a comfortable, familiar and stimulating atmosphere.(I lived a cosmopolitan life sharing my academic ideas and experiences in a quiet placed close to the university). It has been my home where I had the possibility to make friends.

Thanks you so much for all of your help and advice over the course of my final year. I would not have got the 2:1 without the support of you all.

Coniston is certainly the place to come if you need a suitable place to study. Coniston brings together an atmosphere of study and an opportunity to enjoy the student lifestyle. I have always found it safe and secure. With good food provided I have been able to concentrate on my work, not worrying about buying and cooking food, which has been economic, both financially and with time.

Michelle Marshall, BA International Relations, University of Manchester

I like visiting the elderly. It is a way to combat loneliness and isolation among older people. At times 10 minutes is enough to make someone smile!

Malamati, MA student, University of Manchester

You are doing a very good job, keep it up.

Kevin, Manager Proctor’s Youth Centre in Hulme

I had the best time ever at Coniston. The people were very friendly and welcomed me in a way it felt like home. The room I stayed in was big and the meals are very good. Every day they cleaned my room. So there isn’t much to worry about and you can focus on your study. With the other girls that stayed in Coniston Hall I had lots of fun and I’ve got to know Manchester very well. I will never forget the good time I had in Coniston Hall. Thank you for the best three months ever in Manchester!

Manon Snaterse, Erasmus Student, University of Manchester

Coniston Hall is ideal for postgraduate students who are looking for a quiet place to study and feel comfortable. The beautiful garden, excellent food and spacious rooms are a big bonus. Also, if you are looking for distraction, there are always cultural activities and excursions you can join. The staff at Coniston Hall is very caring and supportive and will make you feel at home.

Coniston Hall is like no other halls of residence. It has an incredible atmosphere which encourages hard work and I believe that it has played a huge factor in improving my grades
