Watch: Welcome to Westpoint - Home to UA92 Students!

Back in December we took a trip to our Westpoint development to chat to three current University Academy 92 (UA92) students living at Westpoint. We discussed all things Manchester, from football to Metrolink fines, our residents filled us in on what it’s like to live at Westpoint as a student, and what it’s like to be in the first ever intake of students for UA92.


First launching in late 2018, Westpoint is one of Manchester Apartments’ most impressive developments to date, popular with both students and professionals alike. Westpoint is for people seeking practical living solutions who want to live in close proximity to all of Manchester’s amenities. The apartments are built to a high standard, with smart technologies and space-saving features. Westpoint also boasts an on-site gym, shared social space for revision and socialising and regular residents’ events. Westpoint is only a 2-minute walk to closest tram stop, making travel into and around Manchester very easy for Westpoint residents.

Manchester United 1992 royalty Ryan Giggs, Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt are the driving force behind UA92. The objective is for UA92 to bring innovative skills to the communities of Trafford and Stretford and the other boroughs across Greater Manchester. The degrees obtained will be awarded by Lancaster University, consistently ranked in the top ten university rankings, and currently the Sunday Times’ ‘University of the Year’.

UA92 offers a refreshing take on the ‘normal’ student life. Focusing hard on its degree opportunities with the backing of Lancaster University, UA92 gives students and future employers the opportunity to hire graduates with relevant work experience, benefiting both the academic and business worlds. 

Academy Apartments

This year, Talbot Road will be home to the second development from Manchester Apartments to open in Trafford, marking our part of the significant Trafford Regeneration scheme. Trafford’s regeneration scheme is focused on boosting retail, leisure, education and housing whilst tapping into the area’s two legendary sporting arenas. A huge part of the regeneration project is driven by UA92. We’re pleased to be providing another accommodation option to the students of UA92. Academy Apartments, launching in September 2020, comprises of 90 studio and 1-bedroom apartments and is situated just across the road from UA92. The development is also set to be one of the city’s most energy efficient developments, thanks to the use of low-carbon technologies. Every apartment will be built to Manchester Apartments’ typically high standard, with practicality and functionality in mind – only using top brands and the highest standard of finish.
