iQ’s Student Quarter is gated Salford student accommodation on the River Irwell. The community is perfect for students of the University of Salford, whose main campus is just a 15 minute walk away. With Manchester city centre not far away, either, Student Quarter can also be a good choice for students of the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Four classes of en suite rooms are available for residents of Student Quarter, starting from just £104pw. The Bronze En Suite is the lowest price room available and features a single bed, private en suite shower room, a study area, and storage for your belongings. The Silver En Suite offers similar features, but with slightly more space and a small double bed. Both room types feature communal kitchen and living areas shared between 3 – 6 people.

The Gold En Suite, starting from £139pw, offers a bedroom with more space than the Bronze and Silver packages. You’ll have a full-sized double bed and comfy seating on top of all the features from the previous rooms. The same goes for the Platinum En Suite, again offering a 2-seater sofa and slightly more private living space than the last. Both these room types have shared kitchen and living areas between 3 – 5 residents.

All rooms at Salford’s Student Quarter include bills, WiFi, and contents insurance within the price of the rent. You’ll be staying in a great location close to both Salford and Manchester city centres. Plus, the accommodation itself has lots of great facilities at your disposal, including laundry facilities, onsite parking, and a variety of communal areas.
