Absolute tinnies, Best accommodation for socialising all in all, you meet tonnes of great people and have countless amazing experiences if you put yourself out there. Facilities are great and the cleaners are sound, sometimes the RAs are too. Only downside is the awful washing machines and dryers (all accoms have the same though) and the sofas aren't that comfy. If you are looking for a crazy good social experience and an amazing first year (before all the real work starts) then please do not look any further than big Melville grove. Sensational.

Q
How are the fridge/freeer and cupboard space allocated at Melville?
By member751228 On 19th September 20
Everyone gets their own cupboards and drawers in the kitchen. kitchen cupboards have a spot to put a lock if you need. Fridge space allocation is up to you and your flat mates to decide, I had two fridges for 7 people in my house

Melville Grove is a good location and about the best value you're going to get through Uni accomodation realistically. It's so loud at night time, especially if your window faces Vine Court. You can hear next door's music at 3am. I'd recommend getting a double room if you don't fancy living in a shoebox.

In my opinion, Melville Grove is by far the BEST 1st year accommodation that the University offers; I had the best time living in these halls and met some amazing people thanks to just how social it is - definitely one of the most social accommodations. However, if you sometimes want a break some time to yourself that is also possible; thanks to the layout and sturdy thick walls you can spend time in your room and not be too disturbed by people being loud in the kitchen etc. The shared bathrooms really is not an issue to worry about; there are two to each house and it's honestly fine. They get cleaned thoroughly 2-3 times a week so they are never grim; in 2nd and 3rd year you will most likely be sharing so might as well get used to it! Finally, having done a year out, I was worried I would be a year older than everyone else but as Melville is so popular the majority of students who get placed there are also gap year students as they can apply earlier so get priority.

Covid-19: The accommodation team very kindly released us from our contracts if we opted to move out early so we didn't have to pay past 31st March 2020 thus saving us a lot of money. If you chose to stay the accommodation team continued to offer services to support those self-isolating in their halls.

Excellent accommodation very homely & big houses but the walls are paper thin, you can hear everything that's going on in the house if you're in your room, can be very frustrating

I'm so grateful that I could be in Melville in first year. I think they are one of the best halls for socialising. You get to know so many different houses just by sitting outside during freshers because everyone congregates outside. The RA's are dead relaxed and so you never get done for having loud predrinks or anything, but in Crown the pres always get shut down at 11. The halls are new and modern, and so are up to Crown Places standards now. The was the layout works means that 7 people share a house, with a big kitchen (2 ovens/stoves, microwave, kettle, toaster, 3 fridges and a freezer) and 2 bathrooms. The shared bathroom thing really shouldn't put you off, they're bigger than the single bathrooms that you would have in other halls, and they get cleaned for you so they're not grim at all. You have to share at home anyway so its not a big change.

The whole hall has been refurbished and is better than carnatic/ greenbank and Crown place option. All the halls in Liverpool are corridor based in where someone is living either side of you, above and below. Melville grove is like a house that you share with 7 other people. There are two bathroom and a common kitchen where you have your own lockable storage space. The room size is also bigger than crown place and vine court but most importantly for me is the fact that its not as noisy as other halls and its very very close to lecture halls, unlike carnatic and greenbank where you have to take a 30 minute bus ride.

The halls are dirty, very old and unkempt. Really poor value for £95 per week! A more convenient and cheaper version than Carnatic/Greenbank, but quite honestly, if I'd been offered a room in Crown Place I would have taken it. Apply early for Crown Place.
