Whole of Oxford Court got internally refitted and refurbished in the summer of 2016. Some blocks are only 2 people flats and some are max 4 people. The 2 people flats are with share kitchen and shared bathroom which are also new. The 4 people flat are ensuite with a shared kitchen. More or less a double bed and spacious room. The wifi is also really good. Oxford Court is a 5 minute walk from the MMU buildings. There is also secured car parking in the centre of the blocks. Having visited various student accomodation so can say that Oxford Court or Birley fields are the nicest accommodations on offer, however they are pretty expensive. However Oxford Court is generally not as lively as other student halls. You can also wash and dry you're clothes on site which costs about £5 in total.

Made such a mistake wish I had chosen a privately run halls like MSV instead, so many issues with the buildings, constantly in need of repairs, in my room the toilet had to be replaced, floorboards lifted and heater fixed. Reception is poor too with post often missed and no system to inform you of post. Walls are so paper thin I can hear my flat mates full conversations and phone alarms. So unsocial don't go to these halls to make friends or have parties as security are so strict every party gets shut down even if the music is low.

Well, if I can warn future students not to come here i'm going to try my best. From day one (17/09/16) multiple rooms in oxford court have had Broken showers, leaking ceilings, leaking walls, broken taps, faulty taps, faulty hobs, windows that are stuck shut, windows that are stuck open and wont open, AND MORE. For £139 this is f***ing terrible. Not to mention the internet is advertised at 100mps, when my connection is set up, it runs at 1mps, thats 99% SLOWER than whats advertised so please dont believe what they say the internet is like. Internet also cuts off multiple times a day. The way they organise post is f***ng terrible and it can take 5-10 minutes for them to find something that you know has arrived. Please do yourself a favour and whatever you do, DO NOT choose oxford court.

Rooms are great, very big with an en-suite. The location for me is perfect, it take's me about 3 minutes to get from my room to class. Security are quite lenient compared to other halls like Cambridge where they are very strict and will almost always shut down any gatherings never mind parties. As mentioned by others in a sense it does lack the social vibrancy that halls like Cambridge have, but each flat is only four people. It really depends on the block, some blocks are very social and always have music blaring others are very bland and quiet so its really about the people in the block. Biggest issue was mice, we had mice like many other flats and security claimed their was nothing they could do. A few traps atleast would have been nice. Internet, like most all saints halls is terrible, you'll get 10 mins usage before having to disconnect and reconnect.

Lacks a social and 'party' vibe compared to other halls like Briarfields and Cambridge. But the people you meet make up for this! Location isn't entirely safe to be in, if the halls were located nearer areas like Piccadily and Deansgate the halls experience would be perfect.

The bedroom is quite big, plenty of room. Bathroom is rather small but manageable for one person if you prefer to have your own bathroom. The living room/kitchen is a reasonable size and a nice enough area for what you need it for. Oxford court have four people in each flat which is alright but i wouldn't recommend it if you prefer a party atmosphere or more people to live with.

It might have been central, but I was with awful, pretentious people and didn't really have any way to deal with it. Also, I had a few problems with my room. A door fell off my wardrobe (half on half off, top across ways door which was quite dangerous as if the other side broke, it could have fallen on me) took a few days before anyone came out, no warning and they didn't fix it, just took off the door. Another room issue was that I had a leak in my bathroom. I logged the problem 3 times and nobody did anything about it until there was a puddle in my bedroom. Which they told me was toilet water. Rank. I wouldn't recommend it, it was a big part of the reason I dropped out.
