Too expensive and keeps rising every year! Should be 125 a week max! Also need more accommodation as there isn't enough!

Absolutely couldn’t be happier with my halls, I live in one of the town houses, with 12 people. Sounds crazy but everyone is lovely and the space is big enough to accommodate us all. I feel very safe and the building is lovely and modern feeling. Was worried about sharing a bathroom but honestly haven’t had a problem it’s nothing to stress about at all

Halls was great fun but rather expensive! At birley you get a massive bedroom and a really pretty 12 bedroom house basically.

They don't care about the students. My boyfriend has been trying to move out because of bullying but nothing is being done about it and I have been told that it is impossible to leave. His flatmates are all very vindictive and have been trying to break into his room, they are very rude to both me and my boyfriend(He has been trying to move out for over 4 months!)

Any problems you have 24hours a day reception open which most halls don't have. From the middle of the night to early hours of the morning they will come up and sort it out for you. Couldn't ask for a better reception

Highly overpriced, although really nice and brand new it's scary to do anything wrong because they fine you massive charges over little things. Living in a townhouse of 12 people, it's never ever clean. In our house we have to live with 'rejects' of other houses - people who didn't get along with their other housemates so they got moved to our house. These are the worst kind of people - dirty, loud, never care about anyone but themselves. And when there's 12 of us, it really matters to consider your housemates. I wouldn't recommend these halls if you care about cleanliness cause it's pretty much impossible to keep it up - only so many times you can have a go at them on the group chat, things never change and the management does absolutely nothing about it.

I stay in Birley, Warde and it is amazing! Halls aren't that cheap but staying here is worth it. We get cleaners who hoover and wipe down surfaces once a week. It's probably MMU's nicest accommodation and the most sociable. The rooms are quite small but it's exactly what you need and there is plenty of storage. The bathroom is shared between 2 people and it's tiny and basic but manageable. I would strongly recommend Birley Warde

No communication at all by the staff. If you have an issue, it will take ages to get sorted, I waited about 2 months for a chest of drawers they forgot to give me.

Still not complete fully (exterior landscaping) and still paying full prive for the accomodation. Wifi rarely works in my room. Halls are modern and spacious. Nice looking but if given a 2nd chance for freshers. I wouldnt live here.
