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.

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

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.
