Manchester-based lettings agency Manchester Apartments has announced that it is an accommodation provider of University Academy 92 (UA92)
Manchester Apartments and their parent company Beech Holdings have announced a collaboration with University Academy 92 (UA92), a higher education institution located in Old Trafford near the city centre. UA92 is co-funded by Lancaster University and offers a broader scope of degrees than traditional universities.
As a partner, Manchester Apartments provide accommodation for UA92 students, working alongside the Trafford Regeneration scheme. Trafford’s regeneration scheme is focused on boosting retail, leisure, education and housing whilst tapping into the area’s two legendary sporting arenas. A huge part of the regeneration project is driven by University Academy 92 (UA92).
Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt are the driving force behind UA92. The objective is for UA92 to bring innovative skills to the communities of Trafford and Stretford and the other boroughs of Greater Manchester. The degrees obtained will be awarded by Lancaster University, consistently ranked in the top ten university rankings, and currently Sunday Times’ ‘University of the Year’. Degrees studied at UA92 include media, business, sport and psychology academic undergraduate programmes.
UA92 offers a refreshing take on the ‘normal’ student life. Focusing hard on its degree opportunities with the backing of Lancaster University, UA92 gives students and future employers the opportunity to hire graduates with relevant work experience, benefiting both the academic and business worlds.
UA92 is set to be a huge asset to the local area, their main campus, previously home to Kellogg’s, will cater for up to 6,500 students, a number of these students have recently moved into Manchester Apartments’ Westpoint development.
First launching in late 2018, Westpoint is one of Manchester Apartments’ most popular developments and was created as part of the Trafford Regeneration Scheme. Manchester Apartments have worked closely with Trafford Council over the past 12 months, offering UA92 accommodation at Westpoint, helping drive the University forward.
Westpoint’s facilities enable students at UA92 to make the most of their time at university. With an on-site gym, shared social space for revision and socialising, regular events and close proximity to UA92, it’s the perfect place for students to make the most of their living experience whilst at university.
Manchester Apartments and Beech Holdings have been working closely with Trafford Council on both the Westpoint development and potential upcoming projects.
Situated just 20 metres away from UA92 is Warwick Road, home to the latest development from Manchester’s leading residential developer, Beech Holdings. Warwick Road is scheduled for completion in summer 2020. The development will consist of studio and 1-bedroom apartments. The apartments will be highly suitable for students, graduates and young professionals. The use of modern, low-carbon technologies means that the Warwick Road development will be one of the city’s most energy-efficient developments.
Jonathan Griffiths, Director of Property & Building Management at Beech Holdings, commented: “‘Working with UA92 and Trafford council has been a fantastic opportunity to put something back into the Trafford area. Our high-quality apartments offer a great living space for new students, offering social space for students to interact, hold events and communicate with their peers.
We look forward to more business relations with the university and we are excited to see this new university concept and developing area come to life!”
