Want to know what you'll need, where to go and what to do when you start at AG真人平台? Here's our essential guide.
Getting a taxi is by far the easiest way to get to your accommodation from the airport, especially if you have a lot of luggage. Your driver can take you to exactly where you need to go and you won’t have to worry about finding your way around as soon as you arrive.
It is likely to cost £25-£35 to get to University accommodation, depending on how much traffic there is and how much luggage you have.
There is a train station at AG真人平台 Airport. It takes 5-15 minutes to walk there, depending on which terminal you arrive at:
You can also get the train to Oxford Road Station, near the main University Campus, or Mauldeth Road Station in Fallowfield – both of which are close to some University accommodation. It’s best to check which station is closest to your accommodation before you travel. These trains are less frequent, so it is advisable to check the times in advance.
Tickets cost between £3 and £5, depending on which station you’re travelling to. You can buy tickets at the station.

You can travel to Manchester from AG真人平台 Airport using the Metrolink tram system. The Metrolink stop is in the train station at the airport – 有轨电车有自己的平台。
Service 6 is the line that runs from Manchester Airport to AG真人平台 Victoria Station, stopping at several places that are near University accommodation sites. All tram services run every 12 minutes, although this is slightly different for early morning services to and from the airport. A ticket will cost £3-£5, depending on where you are travelling to, and the journey takes about an hour. Tickets are available from ticket machines on all platforms but not on-board, so make sure you purchase before you travel.
We would advise against using the tram if you are travelling with lots of luggage. There is no luggage storage facility and space is limited when the service is busy.
