Recently the University of Manchester has revealed its plans to redevelop the Fallowfield Campus and is moving to the next phase by allowing students, residents, staff and local groups to provide their feedback about the development strategy shared.
The university had earlier revealed that it is planning to modernise and redesign the Fallowfield Campus accommodation with 3,300 new bedrooms in place of the existing bedrooms. The plan is to optimise the space and inculcate better facilities for the students.
According to the statistics of this plan, after the redevelopment of the campus, there would be 5,400 beds at the campus. This accounts for around 950 more beds on the premises. In this way, the University of Manchester will be able to invite more students to its campus accommodation than ever.
The Student’s Opinion
Every time a university introduces new facilities or redevelops the existing ones, it is for the benefit of the students. This step will also provide students with better choices and wider opportunities for choosing student accommodation at Manchester University.
Taking a step further, the University of Manchester has also invited students, residents, staff and local groups to share their opinions about the plan, provide feedback and share their necessities.
On the 14th of June 2023, opinions on the matter were taken at the Uttley House, Fallowfield Campus and on the next day the remaining participants were consulted over a webinar. After the discussions and amendments to the plan, it is submitted to the Manchester City Council for approval.

What Developments are expected through this plan?
The redevelopment plan will be executed in multiple stages, working on one area at a time. The major developments are planned around the Fallowfield Campus. Areas like Owens Park, Oak House and Woolton Hall will be included in the redesigning.
This summer, the Oak House redevelopment can be expected to start and as per plans by the academic year of 2023-2024, the student reception will be shifted. The existing halls will not be affected by the redevelopment and the students already living in the campus area can continue to live comfortably.
These developments will not only allow increased occupancy at the Fallowfield Campus but will also provide better and more modern living facilities to the students by optimizing the area in a better way.
