I chose here for my first year because it was the cheapest and closest and i’m pretty much glad i did. Security/Reception is 24 hour and right outside Cambridge North and they’re all really friendly. Cleaners come once a week and ours always did a good job. If you’re happy in a little box room you’ll be happy with your room at Cambridge. I made mine my own by adding posters and fairy lights. Living with 9 other people is fun, always in the kitchen having a laugh. Only negative things are the showers, one is a bit too hot and one is a bit too cold but you can live with it. Toilets aren’t the nicest but that’s only because they’re basic. If you have clean flatmates then it’ll be fine! Cambridge is definitely up there for the social side of uni. During Freshers week it was a bit tooo noisy but obviously that dies down. If you’re looking for something quieter go further away. If you’re looking for something pretty much the same but more modern then go for Cavendish. Overall, i LOVED cambr.

If someone says ‘security are irritating’, in all likelihood it’s probably because they themselves were not decent people. Security and management have always been sound people in my experience. As long as you don’t smoke in the kitchen or light a joint in their face, you’ll be fine. Never should you limit yourself to the people within your flat, but it is important to try and get on with them as they will influence your halls experience. The ‘you won’t like everyone’ phrase I was told so often prior to starting in Manchester however was simply not true in my case. Though it is largely luck of the draw who you end up with, being in a flat of ten increases the likelihood of getting on with someone. Conversely, I am now living in a Cambridge North flat of 10 with the girl I’m dating and some of my best mates. Life’s pretty good with this and the burger van down the road. The only downside I can find with Cambridge Halls is the occasional noise but I find even that to be irregular.

Awful Uni accommodation, full of drug users and the University doesn't care. Usually a freshers accommodation and it shows. Great if you like a loud environment with security who seem to be on a power trip unless something actually happens. If there is an incident then security don't seem to bother too much. Manager is sarcastic and very rude when addressing issues and seems to pass of poor behaviour down to "that's part of student life." unfortunately I don't quite think that a student defecating on the kitchen floor is part of student life. The price for what you get is rather poor and you can find much better accommodation for the same price if you shop around. The rooms are the same size as prison cells with the same amenities.

Very noisy at night, you will 100% be put with people who will not wash up so be prepared for a messy kitchen, especially living with 10 people. Stairwell always smells. But great for social people who like to make lots of friends from different flats. Always some form of flat party going on. Don't live on the bottom floor by the doors, they are very noisy. Also with bedrooms facing out to the courtyard they can get very noisy from 10pm - 4am. Extremely close to MMU.

It's the cheapest of the MMU accom but I'd say for what you get it is expensive. Kitchen is always filthy, even when the surfaces are clear they don't get cleaned. Shower is horrible and sharing a bathroom was never something that would have bothered me. Gets clogged with hair and really grimy, say they get cleaned twice a week but ours must have been done about twice every 3 months! The common room is literally a kitchen dining table which makes it more difficult to chill with your flatmates like I know other flats do because it's so uncomfortable you all just go in your own rooms. If you're looking for cheapness I'd go Daisy Bank because you get a lounge with sofa and an ensuite and the distance you have to travel is a small consolation. But, if you can afford it go Briarfields or Birley because in my opinion it's worth the extra £15-£20 a week. The main reason I was attracted to this accom was the "party" factor but the other halls from what I've heard go for it just as much.

Wifi is non existent, really expensive, hall management are awful, rude and try to scam you out of money through fines, cleaning is terrible and cleaner always refuses to clean because 'too messy', no common room or social spaces just a dirty kitchen, social experience is shocking as not allowed to have people stay round, used to be party halls but not anymore due to unnecessary security making you feel like you are unwelcome in your own flat which you are paying ridiculous amounts for, spoken to like a child by security, fined for everything you do, tried to fine me £50 for my room key when I left it in my room as it 'wasn't there' but I was the last one to move out and it definitely was there. Really wouldn't choose these halls, victoria halls seem a lot better as nice living area and not rude and annoying security on your case all the time.

STRICTEST HALLS EVER! If you are someone who likes drinking, socialising or partying within reason, do NOT go to these halls. These halls in the past have got a reputation for having a very social atmosphere which is a good thing if your looking for that sort of thing at uni. Whilst they may have lived up to that reputation in recent years, they are anything but now and very, very strict. After a night out, you'll be expected to go straight to bed, they will do routine checks in the kitchen area and if your playing music and drinking they'll be taking your ID number, accusing you of smoking, noise pollution etc with zero evidence and then issue you a fine. Just about making money of you rather than ensuring you have the best possible experience. Some staff almost get a kick out of doing routine checks and issuing fines. They will shut down any party or gathering very quickly. Me and two of my flat mates were quietly drinking one night and they came in and told us to get to bed.

Do not apply to these halls they are the worst in Manchester they had a name before for party halls but now there is so much security that if you have music up to load you will get a £50 fine there are people at the end of this year coming out with £900 fines its s***

Security are unnecessarily strict. They come into your flats unannounced and go through your belongings. You're no longer allowed parties and just generally poor

Hall management are awful. You're treated like a child. Wouldn't recommend living here if you like to have a bit of freedom. Security checks in your rooms etc, massive invasion of privacy. Plus, we as a flat decided we hated the curtains (they were very old and horrid to look at) so we took them down and stored them in the store room. We were told to put them back up or we would be fined, like I said, treated like a child.

Really good social halls, you can't not make friends here with 3 flats a floor, 4 floors and 10 people in each flat. The internet is s*** and security are trying to tone down the "party halls" atmosphere.

The best way to start uni at mmu is in cambridge halls! Dont let the non ensuite situation put you off its really not that bad and better for flat parties. Cambridge halls is where the party starts, because the flat sizes are usually 10 people you make plenty of friends in your flat and the surrounding flats. I have made some of my best friend from cambridge halls. There is a friendly atmosphere, it is secure with 24hr security guards and it one of the cheaper options for mmu students.
