I have just finished a year living here, overall I have had a positive experience. The staff for the most part are friendly and being an ensuite flat of only 4 people was exactly what I was looking for. The most disappointing thing about the halls though is that there is no social space meaning its harder to meet people. When issues occurred in the flat they were usually fixed quickly. Laundry is run by circuit which is expensive and unreliable. Machines were often broken and when there's only 5 to begin with for the whole of halls this can often lead to long waits for a washer. Overall the location was probably the biggest benefit as it is within 5 minutes of most university buildings but it is expensive however if you want to live with a small number of people close to campus it is probably your best option.
My accommodation has been one of the only positives about my uni experience so far, Oxford Court is slightly pricey but the rooms are lovely. As a student nurse I looked for one of the quieter accommodations and with only 4 people per flat this was the best option. I'm glad I chose this accommodation as all the staff there are absolutely brilliant- from reception, maintenance and security they have all been extremely helpful, friendly and supportive. I have had some minor issues within the flat (broken kettle, toilet handle breaking etc.) maintenance were always super quick to respond and resolve the problem. The bedroom could maybe do with a bit more storage space but I think that would be the case in any accommodation. Overall, I highly recommend this accommodation if you're looking for somewhere quieter to live. The location is great- especially for health and social care students as it's less than 5 minutes away. The only downside is it's somewhat pricey, but it's worth it.
Oxford Court is a brilliant space but not really worth the price. Sharing with only three other people is great if you’re more introverted but Oxford Court is not for you if you’re interested in more of a social, ‘classic uni’ vibe. Having an en-suite bathroom is a godsend however and i’d say this is its main selling point. The on-site maintenance team is great and so friendly however the out-of-hours team are next to useless. On one occasion our hob stopped working and they tried to argue with me and blame my pans which I had been using perfectly fine for months before. It seemed like they weren’t even trained. To sum up, I wouldn’t recommend Oxford Court as it’s the most expensive accommodation, and for what you’re getting it’s not really worth it.
Oxford Court is good accommodation but a little expensive. I would suggest it to anyone. It is en-suite and near Manchester Metropolitan University. Fire alarm doesnt goes off all the time and this is an important advantage! However it lacks social spaces. It is definetely better than Cambridge Halls where many people live together in bad conditions (windows do not close properly, no heating, too much noise from outside, fire alarm goes off almost every day, really bad Wifi)
These halls were incredible, a two-minute walk from most of the buildings on campus, a fifteen-minute walk from the city centre. Ensuites to give a lot more privacy than other accommodations but also a kitchen/communal space to chill with your flatmates.
Hi, we are indeed very fortunate to have a campus with all the facilities close at hand. The balance of life in the accomodation aims to have something to meet everyones needs. It is good to see that you are enjoying your experience and making friends for life.

Modern 3/4 rooms with en suite and kitchens. Located near to the university. Was lucky enough to be housed with sociable flatmates however know people who didn’t get as lucky. If your wanting a sociable experience I would consider halls such as Birley or Cavendish but if you are someone who prefers comfort then Oxford Court may be the halls for you. Maintenance have been quick to act upon any issues and the receptionists are equally helpful. Overall I have had a positive experience staying in these halls and would recommend to anyone considering staying here in the future.
For the price I pay it is not worth it! Not very social at all and the layout of the whole flat is bad. Security let themselves in whenever they want and they don’t fix/solve problems the best. As the electrics in the flat got turned off all night one time and we had to throw all the food and had to try and find accomodation else where luckily my boyfriend lives close so I could stay there otherwise I don’t know what I would have done that night. I’d say birley is more social id go there if I was finding accomodation in first year.
The size of the room is good, the en-suite bathroom is quite small but it's only for you so I guess it's okay. The internet is very s***, I paid for an upgrade but it actually doesn't matter at all as everyone gets the same speed..which is s***. This halls is not very partying and noisy, which is good for people who wants to sleep. The maintenance have fixed anything that needed to get fixed in my flat. The kitchen is very big and well designed, however depending on your flatmates, it can get super messy and smelly...The cleaning staff normally cleans the stairs once a week but it is not cleaned very well... I find this hall very good and a good value of money even if it's pretty dirty and smelly (but that's on your flatmates).
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.
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.
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****** 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****** 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.
