Academy Apartments has been chosen by UA92 as its preferred PBSA provider.

Academy Apartments, developed by Beech Holdings and managed by sister company Manchester Apartments, contains 90 studio and one-bedroomed units for students and graduates that has historically achieved 100% occupancy rate since completion in 2020.  

The UA92 campus is based in Old Trafford Manchester and has a new 36,000 sq ft Business School due to open in the city centre later this year. UA92 has agreed a long-term partnership with Manchester Apartments to house its growing student population citing the quality of product and excellent level of service provided. 

With an original GDV of £14m, the development offers residents fully inclusive bills, hyper-fast wifi, sustainable heating and apartments fully furnished with top-brand appliances.  

“This partnership demonstrates the success of this building and level of service my team provides. We’ve never had any occupancy gaps at Academy Apartments and UA92 has recognised this and put its confidence in us. Over the last few years of managing this building, we’ve had such great feedback from tenants and equally importantly, their parents who are confident of their children’s safety and comfort.”

Jonathan Griffiths, Director, Manchester Apartments

Academy Apartments has one of the largest selections of quality apartments to rent in Manchester for students, graduates and young professionals.

Each apartment has been designed with young people in mind and offers affordable accommodation with a luxury feel – and is offered exclusively to UA92 students. With the highest levels of service for tenants, the business prides itself on responding to any tenants’ enquiries within 24 hours.

“We’ve worked alongside Manchester Apartments since they developed this building and the company’s willingness to genuinely listen to tenants is top of the agenda. That’s why we now want to guarantee our students get this site before anyone else. The apartments were developed with them in mind, giving them what they really want from their home during their studies. It helps that the apartments are also 30 seconds away from campus!”

Gareth Smith, Executive Director of Student Life and Strategy, UA92
