I've been in the UK since 2017, and came to live at True Salford this year (2023). Honestly, I'll shout out loud that no other place has been as wonderful as living here. What initially sold this place to me was the 24/7 security, on-site gym, lounges, activities for social butterflies, and quiet areas for the introverts. But as I actually started living here, I found this place meant so much more. With a hectic student-work life, I come back to a team at the reception welcoming me with the brightest smiles. They genuinely care for the residents, and they go out of their way to support us! Thank you lovely team, for making my days better with your care and smiles!

Living at true student has changed my University experience for the better. It’s a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment, and there’s always fun activities to attend. Their website describes all the benefits of living here, and every single one is true (pun intended).

My stay at true Salford has been undeniably the best, I love the events, the staff here as actually the best. The respect, love and security is top tier; I never thought I’d be able to bond and have interaction with staffs ever in my life. I love the fact you get a say in the events they plan out whether it’s inside the accommodation or outside the accommodation and you can plan an event, tell me what other accommodations (public/private) do any of that sort. So if you’re ever looking for a private accommodation. I believe you should apply and never let it go past your mind.
