The Student Hut has ranked Peel Park Quarter as the third best halls of residence out of almost 1,000 across the country.

The ranking was based on more than 9,000 reviews on their website.

The halls are managed by Campus Living Villages on behalf of the University of Salford and are located on the university's main Peel Campus. The accommodation is arranged in seven blocks named after famous Salford people, including painter L S Lowry and women's rights campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst.

The £81m development was opened in 2015 and includes multiple social spaces, views of the Manchester skyline, two 30-seater cinemas and a gym. It's also located just 100m from the library and sites next door to the sports centre and student union.
