The 25th anniversary celebrations went down a treat, with familiar faces descending on Coniston to relive memories and catch up.

Most of you are aware of the refurbishment of Coniston Hall which took place a number of years ago now. We are continuing to raise funds for owning charity AET so that they can continue paying off the refurbishment costs. We know that Coniston is a great place, and to help keep it that way we invite you to donate here. Note that if you are a UK taxpayer, the Gift Aid option offers a simple way to increase the value of your gift to Coniston Hall by allowing the charity to reclaim the tax on your gift.

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.

Coniston is very lively and friendly, it feels like a second family away from home. The hall offers a wide range of activities that leave no room for being lonely or homesick.The environment leads one to interact with other students from different countries. The meals are fantastic, the rooms are very comfortable (cleaning is done daily),the study atmosphere perfect. Definitely your money’s worth!

Florence Gatome, M.Sc.Development and Finance, University of Manchester

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
