Top quality halls, very modern. There's a new cafe, and the sports park is 100m away. Bus to uni takes 15 mins, and to town about 25. Make sure you're flat is only 1st year students.

The room is definitely worth the money. Really nice location and good if you want to actually have separation from being in a learning environment 24/7. Common rooms are not all that brilliant, however.

Lovely rooms and decent kitchen size however not all flats are very sociable. Thankfully lots of friends in the building and pres are always a lot of fun! Love the proximity to the sports park and tesco and the walk to campus really isn't bad!

Had problems with Internet connection (the issue woth wore gettinh into my room) which couldn't get fixed for the whole year. The battery was too far from the desk which wasnt great in winter when freezing.... The rest is absolutely fine - the environment is rather new and comfortable! :)

Band E room - very comfortable and spacious. The 5-room hall meant I didn't have to worry about too much noise, many strangers, or much mess. Returning to a comfortable and clean room meant I didn't have the distraction many other students had. Although a fair distance from the campus, the location, with a view of fields, meant there was little sound pollution, and was a rather tranquil place to spend my first year.

Band D room, shared kitchen with 6 people, en suite with a single bed, large kitchen space. Area around manor park is amazing dispite being off campus (however is only a 20-30minute walk) but is just across the road from tescos. Also connected to surrey sports park via a 5 minute walk. The area looks updated and clean with a road system worked around the building. Buses are readily available to go into town and uni.

Great bedrooms and kitchen. Cooker oven is slow so don't start cooking at 10pm as you'll be there till midnight. 5min walk to the gym or a short walk/bus to the main campus, with the laundry room just around the corner from your flat. Heart and soul is a great place to eat or socialise.

Manor Park rooms are expensive, but are much nicer than on campus accommodation. The biggest drawback is the distance, but if you plan to cycle this isn't too bad. It's a 20 minute walk otherwise.

Very convenient for sports park but a bit far from university and town. The bedrooms are comfortable to live in and the campus is quite modern. There aren't many common rooms and they aren't very equipped. They have TVs and maybe table tennis in a few.

Went for band D to be safe but would have been happier in band C as more social and would have saved money. Band D was too civilised to be a proper uni experience

The rooms/kitchens themselves are really quite good, but it's quite far from town/campus, and there are only two small common rooms for a huge housing estate. Heart and soul is okay, but for the only place to eat/drink on site it closes early and it's expensive.

Nice facilities compared to Stag Hill. However, in terms of social bonding / social rooms there isn't much opportunity and people have to go above and beyond to make an effort.

Its so far away from University, the Student Union, and town. And the transportation to and from these places sucks. But overall, Manor Park as a residence hall is new- but the lighting in the room is awful. Its only one lamp.

Buss pass solves the issue of the walk to uni, however the buses are so unteliable, but being further out means that its harder to be socially involved, especially when your friends are living on campus! However the rooms are much nicer than on campus and the sports park and tesco are right next door!

Some student would complain that Manor Park is 'far away' from the campus and all the student on Manor Park form a little 'bubble'. But I honestly think it was amazing. All the accommodation vary from Band D to Band F (Band A being the cheapest and Band F most expensive). When I lived there I was paying £121.50 for a Band D, which included an eu suite, cleaners cleaning your kitchen once a week, and bins being taken out for you every day! I was very lucky to live in one of the brand new accommodation which they build the summer before I arrived. The rooms were amazing - good size, lovely mutual colours (mostly cream). However this isn't the case in all of the blocks at Manor Park. The walk to campus is NOT long at all (around 15-20 minutes), and if walking doesn't appeal to you, then there are buses running every 10-15 minutes from Manor Park straight to Campus and Guildford town centre. The big Tesco, Surrey Sports Park and the Hospital are all around 5 minutes walk from Manor Park!

Living at manor park has been brilliant, the rooms are so spacious compared to rooms on campus and the kitchen is huge. Our bathrooms have proper showers not wet rooms so it's very clean and new! The only downside is being 20 minutes walk away from campus but a bus pass solves that problem easily and it's worth the trek for the much higher standard of accomodation!
