Student Residence

The Essential English Centre Student Residence


Student Residence Accommodation

The Essential English Centre works with Salford Student Village, which offers quality student residence accommodation for our students.

This residence provides everything you need to make the most of your student experience. Salford Student Village can accommodate short and long-term stays, and has two, three and four-bedroom apartments for our students.  All facilities and bills are included, and it is situated just a short distance away from our school.

Staying at our student residence means you can immerse yourself into the famous Manchester student life and enjoy independent living during your studies.  You will live in a secure and safe environment, surrounded by other students (both British and international students). But don’t just take our word for it!  Read a testimonial here from a British student studying for her degree:

Upon arrival at John Lester, I was greeted by very welcoming and helpful staff that showed me what I was required to do and provided me with all the information I would need. The service hasn’t faltered, and three years down the line, I still feel very much at home.
If there are ever any problems within the flat you can notify the reception and it’ll get dealt with as soon as possible, you’ll never need to worry.
Events are planned most weeks, such as BBQ’s, movie nights, the celebration of special days, and parties which can really help you especially if you’re a first year looking to mingle and make some new friends!
All in all, I’ve had a fantastic time living at John Lester. The staff are always friendly and willing to help where they can, it helped me settle down in preparation for some hard work and overall a great university experience.
