Opening in September 2020, River Street Tower is located within the First Street area of Manchester which has emerged as one of Manchester’s most vibrant new neighbourhoods.

The area has a blend of culture, leisure and retail and is home to many students. Just around the corner is HOME, a centre for international art, theatre and film and it is less than 10 minutes’ walk to Oxford road and just over 15 minutes’ walk to the University of Manchester. River Street Tower is a great location to choose for your studies in this great city.

If you are planning to arrive into Manchester via the airport, River Street tower is just 15 minutes by taxi and 5-minutes from Manchester Piccadilly train station.

There is a wide choice of accommodation on offer, ranging from en-suite rooms in shared flats to self-contained studios’. All beautifully fitted to a high standard with custom made furniture.  Whichever room type you choose, you can live in style and be part of the community with fantastic social spaces including a ‘dine-in’ area, cinema room, games room, common room and gym.
