Halls are clean and easy to assess. Great value for money and decent size. The kitchen area is quite small but I always managed with living with 6 other people. The location isn't great and social life is poor but I have a great time and made good social life with friends.

Booth halls is fine as long as you don't live with an absolute nightmare, which I do! And he's been reported many of times and staff seem to do nothing. Other than that it's clean and pretty decent.

The amount we pay for what we get is ridiculous. We're in the middle of CREWE. Hardly the bustling city. So I think it's very over priced due to location, services (cleaners) and overall halls.

It's a bit annoying it's in Crewe as there's not much to do but Liverpool and Manchester are only a 40 min train journey away!

£87 per week (going up to 90) s a bit expensive considering there are other accommodation options available in the area which have both a double bed and en suite starting from £75 per wee. The close proximity to the uni university is an advantage, however the only shop nearby is co-op which is quite expensive. Security have started to be very strict around parties which is unfair, as there is no where else nearby to party. Maintainence is slow to respond, and there is no phone signal inside the accommodation accommodation.

Way too expensive, especially seeing as it's in Crewe. The bins are too noisy in the morning, they should be in the day, seeing as people need sleep to get the best of their studies. The hall management aren't lenient enough with flat parties, we're students, of course we're going to party! Not communal enough.

booth hall is the best your going to get in Crewe but compared to the halls in central Manchester this is a pisstake. Mmu need to concentrate on Crewe just as much as Manchester

Security guards think they are the Spanish Guardia spoiling everybody's fun shutting down every party/ social and kicking out everybody who doesn't live in the halls.

I was so nervous living in halls, being far away from home and not knowing anyone, it made me doubt university altogether. But I'm so glad I did it! I have met some amazing people in my flat and on my course, it's a fantastic experience and I actually miss being in halls when I'm back home!

Halls are rubbish well out of the way and flat parties/socials get closed down by booth police when there's only like 10 people there!

It's a nice quiet hall, could have more around it for students to do, but for one person the rooms are spacious but could do with more storage space.

The halls are ok, apart from the communal area looks like a dentist waiting room. They don't have sofas and they aren't really big enough for 7 people. The table fits around 3 people round it.

OK overall but whenever a problem arose within the flat, despite numerous complaints to a number of different Hall staff nothing was done. Meaning the time spent there was pretty hellish!

Very expensive for what you get. Everything breaks even though the flat look after it well. Freezers always break and defrost causing a loss in food which is very expensive to be losing quite often. Although there are issues all in all it is an ok place to live as a student as you cant expect a lot of luxury.

Most of the time when I loved in booth halls the cleaners just sat and talked in our kitchen and didn't really bother doing any cleaning up. As for social experience, the security guards never let us be social. Compared to other universities halls of residence, these halls are very strict and even unfair. The only one time I can think of in which I appreciated from the staff was when I received some flowers unexpectedly and the kept on coming back to my flat to see if I was in to let me know (I was in lectures all day so I wasn't back till late) apparently this happened a few times during the day and then the time when I was actually back in my flat. It was really nice of them as they didn't have to do that!

While the halls are lovely and in great condition the location of them in terms of facilities are shocking. They're very close to campus, which is great, but they're a good 30/35 minute walk from the town centre. You can't help but feel a little trapped sometimes! They're ran very well though and you feel safe.
