Students live with other UM students in residence halls. Each has a single room that is part of a 'flat' of six or seven other singles with a shared sitting room, kitchen, and bathrooms. Students purchase and prepare their own meals. Visitors to the University are occasionally housed in suite rooms before UM students arrive.

Calendar and Deadlines

Applications are on the Colgate University Off-Campus Study/International Programs study groups' website and are submitted online. Only finalists in the selection process will be interviewed.

Passports and Visas
You must confirm that your passport is valid through June 2016. All students participating on the Manchester Study Group will be required to obtain a U.K. student visa. With participation on this study group comes the responsibility of understanding and complying with U.K. government visa requirements. If you will not be traveling on a U.S. passport it is imperative that you contact an adviser in Off-Campus Study/International Programs, 101 Lathrop, and International Student Services, 103C Lathrop Hall, to learn as much as you can about the regulations. For some students there are significant visa requirements to be met that take time, advance planning, and incur extra costs.
