New here or from here, living in Union is the easiest way to make the most of Manchester. It’s a door to friendships and fresh ideas. A room, ensuite, bills included. And a ready-made crowd to grab every opportunity with. If you are new here, it won’t feel like it for long.

Our location

We love Manchester

So close to the core of Manchester you can hear its heartbeat. Be one of the souls living here that really makes it tick. Life at Union means never having to announce that you’re off into town. You’re already part of it. Slap bang in the city centre with anything and everything you need moments away. Deansgate. Spinningfields. Castlefield. You’ve got it all a few mins from your front door. We live in the heart of Manchester. And we live together.

St. Johns & Our Neighbourhood

St John's & Enterprise City

St. John's & Enterprise City

Once home to Granada Studios, a new wave of creativity has taken over Manchester, and it goes by the name St John’s. Home to Factory International, Enterprise City, Soho House and Union. A buzzing new area full of character, opportunity, and most of all soul. Nip to Everyman around the corner. Eat and drink the night away up the road in Spinningfields. Discover your new fave Sunday brunch spot in the Northern Quarter. The opportunities are endless.

Spinningfields Reel


It’s all going on. Tuesday lunchtime or Saturday night. Spinningfields is properly alive. First dates and last orders. A bougie meal out, because why not? It’s just round the corner. Literally.

Deansgate Reel


Those buildings you know from the skyline. Legendary shops, bars and restaurants. A world famous neo-Gothic library. All on this iconic mile long street. Deansgate is one-of-a-kind, and right on your doorstep.

Northern Quarter

Northern Quarter

The Northern Quarter is two secs from Piccadilly. Street art, indie shops, the coolest cafes and bags of charm. It’s absolutely unique but totally down-to-earth.

Life here at Union

Union Editorial


What is coliving?

There’s no myth-busting to do here. Coliving is just people living together. But here at Union, we do things differently. We’ve mixed rent-by-the-room, flatmate matching, and flexible stays to give you freedom. Whether you’re here for a short time or long, we’re all about making city-centre living easy.

Forget everything you know about sharing apartments. At Union, you rent by the room which means you’re only responsible for your room’s rent. If a flatmate leaves, it’s our problem not yours. We’ll find you a new flatmate who you’re likely to get on with (unless you already have a friend who wants to move in, that’s cool too).

Flatmate matching makes meeting new people to live with simple. Whether you’re heading to Union solo or with friends, we’ll help you find new mates. Tell us what you’re into and we’ll find you an apartment with people you’re likely to get on with.

Of course. Our booking team can show you around, just get in touch and we’ll sort a good time with you.

Booking a room is easy. Find a room or get in touch through our website and one of our booking team will be in touch to get things moving.
