very close to the city centre and to the university facilities. i’m mainly in the brooks building and it’s only about a 7 minute walk for me. the reception team are very friendly and welcoming, especially jacob. the maintenance team are quite fast too, when i have logged an issue on the app they are usually ready to solve it the next morning. the rooms are nice, reasonably sized and have a large desk with 2 plug sockets and 2 usb sockets. there are also 2 plug sockets under the bed which is good if you like to use your phone at night, and the bed has a light above it. the kitchen is large and has plenty of space for you and your flatmates to store your stuff in the cupboards. the only negative i can come up with is how the lift was broken on move in week and i had to carry all of my belongings up 5 flights of stairs as i was staying on the 5th floor. also the heating only turns on when the room is at a certain temperature, and i was cold a lot so i had to buy myself a portable heater.

Compared to other accommodations, New Medlock stands out for many reasons. Firstly, the location could not be better. Situated in the city centre and only a 2 minute walk from Oxford road, 5 minute walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk to all uni buildings. My room is modern, bright and clean. The shower is especially great! The kitchen is so nice and spacious too. Everyone at the front desk especially Jacob, Marjan, Jenna and Megan are always so friendly, helpful and make you feel really welcome. Additionally, the maintenance team fixes any problems you encounter asap. I haven’t had any problems living here and can gladly say I wouldn’t want to have spent my first year anywhere else! It’s definitely pricey but having visited most of the cheaper accommodations, I prefer New Medlock.

New Medlock House has been an excellent place to live. It’s a brilliant location just inside the city centre with everything nearby, but also just a 5 minute walk from Manchester Met buildings. It has all been refurbished so new amenities and social spaces. Everything is kept clean and maintenance staff are helpful and prompt. Rooms have everything you need with a lot of storage space. Only negative is that the lift kept breaking for a while which meant a lot of stairs for people on high floors, however it has been back working for a few months now so all problems are resolved.

moving to new medlock as a first year was probably the best decision i could have made. i would like to add a personal thanks to jake who has made me feel welcome everyday when i walk into reception, giving me a smile every day without doubt and general chats. the accommodation has some amazing facilities - my personal fave being to yoga studio they always have different things going on like coffee mornings however the only thing i would say is that i wish i was my involved with all the people on my floor rather than just my housemates !!

Since moving into New Medlock house in September 2022, I have had an amazing experience. I would like to especially mention Jake in this review as his kindness has truly helped me settle into the uni experience. All the staff at new Medlock are amazing, they are always there with a helping hand. The facilities in the accommodation are amazing and definitely worth the money. It's very central and close to the Universities and the city centre. Jake deserves a raise! Thanks to the New Medlock team.

I moved into New Medlock in September 2023 and I struggled to feel like I fit in socially and generally find my feet whilst university. This is where I wish to thank the staff especially Jacob and Izzy. Both of them have introduced me to other residents of the building of which I have formed some great friendships, Something of which of which I wish to thank them for very dearly :) I couldn't recommend a better building and team of staff. They truly show the best of Unite Students.

I have had a great experience whilst staying at New Medlock. I have made some great friends for life here. The staff have always gone above and beyond to help. I suffer from mental health badly and Jacob had always gone out of his way to be supportive and let me know I am not alone. Megan has also always been lovely. They have a very friendly approach which always makes me feel comfortable. The facilities like the study rooms and the karaoke room are a great addition that I have used many times.

Great location not far at all from the unis and the centre. Friendly and welcoming student experience team members shout out to Jake who is a fun character who always greets with a friendly smile and is always welcome to talk to you. Rooms and kitchen are modern and contemporary with a decent amount of storage for belongings.

This is the perfect student accommodation in Manchester. The staff are absolutely amazing and always on hand to help, especially Jake at the front desk, he is kind, considerate and always there with a helping hand or just to have a chat. Everyone I know at New Medlock shared my thoughts on Jake at the front desk, he deserves a raise! The accommodation is clean, with great study and social spaces. This is an amazing location for MMU students as it is close to uni and Manchester City centre. It's a very social accommodation and I have met so many lovely people living here! :) overall it's 5* place and definitely great value for money.

New Medlock House is in a great location, particularly for Manchester Met students as its so close to the majority of the man. met buildings (literally round the corner) aswell as only being 10-15 mins walk to the city centre! The staff are brilliant and cant speak highly enough of them, all of them are so helpful and friendly and will go above and beyond to help, for example, Jake (staff member) is so helpful with any problems or queries you may have and if there is any problems, it gets resolved quickly by either staff or the maintenance team. The facilities are great, everything is modern and there is a large study space which is a lovely environment to work in as well as a pool table and other things. Its also a good price compared to other accommodations.

Would recommend living here as its in the perfect location and near everything. One thing I would say to new students is to bear in mind it is not the most sociable halls however if you are looking for a clean, modern place to live in a convenient location that is reasonably priced for Manchester defo consider living here! Hope this helps :)

It’s alright for the money. Can tell they do try but some issues I have to sort myself because they won’t do it. Like cleaning the builders dust on the day of move in or sellotaping the window because they can’t fix a draft 😂 Don’t get me wrong. This is the best you’re gonna get for your money if you take the location and nearby places (think food and gyms) into consideration

New medlock house is an excellent place to live. The rooms are lovely however do lack a touch of personality. The the building and facilities are modern and easily available. The staff are all lovely especially Jacob who is see more as a friend than a receptionist. The whole place does give off a slightly flat pack feel however with everything feeling a little character less. Apart from that would recommend.

Staff ant NMH are so approachable and always there to give a helping hand. I would like to give a special mention to Jacob as he always goes above and beyond not matter how big the a problem is. And always greets you after a day of uni with a smile.

It’s a decent place, rooms are good size, I’ve got one of the smallest and I managed to fit most of my stuff in it. Staff really friendly, only downside would be our lift constantly breaking, it would be fixed for a couple of hours maybe a day or so, but then would just break again.

Overall I'm pretty disappointed with New Medlock. For the money it is not worth it and they have just decided to kick us all out for the last month we were meant to be living here with barely a month's notice. There is no compensation offered apart from Unite students credit and considering I would never live with them again it's a pretty poor show. Lots of people have had issues with sewage leaks, mushrooms growing in their rooms and a lot of general disruption. Most of the selling points of this accom don't exist now and have all been taken away at a moments notice. The outside social area (promised for the warmer months) has been ripped up and out of use for most of our stay - this was the only real way to meet people at this halls. The washing machines have been out of order every other week until recently when they got a whole new set (leaving us without while the work went on) they have just replaced all of the locks and left sawdust all over my bedroom and bathroom. Terrible.

Bedrooms are okay, not much storage, wardrobes are maybe 20cm wide not near enough to even fit a winter coat in addition to daily clothes, mattresses without a topper are terrible, springs being the main issue. Bathrooms are tiny, no room to put anything anywhere, barely any room to turn around, when I arrived and saw the showers I gasped…having talked to my flat mates and seeing that they have had the same experience I can confirm that the showers are COVERED in black mould. Kitchens are usually a little dirty but of course that depends on who you live with and whether they tidy up after themselves so it’s not a fault of the accommodation itself. However, I did just come across a dead mouse just chilling next to the fridge… AND have heard of bug infestations in other flats which personally to me doesn’t seem like a place I would like to make my food. Poor mouse must have been exhausted after having to get up 7 floors of stairs since our lift has been broken for around a MONTH.

When I first moved in to live, my flatmates had huge party in kitchen at that time I did not know what to do. Freshers are not a joke. They had party from 7 pm to 7 am in the morning and 4-5 times a week. Downstairs non-ensuite rooms are good, but the shared toilets are full of fungus and with many spiders. The outside cleaning is good, but inside flat cleaning is absolutely poor. When you live right above the main gate, there is no chance to open window because people are smoking downstairs. Walls are very thin which we can hear everything inside the flat, specially next room everything! Their night shift staff were not here at nights. As a result so many huge parties come over here, who is not living here. Totally strangers. Receptions are lovely and friendly. The location is brilliant, it is in city centre.

I would like to formally complain about the cruel and unfair treatment towards us university students paying to live in your accommodation during in this uncertain time. Coronavirus has been an incredibly hard time for everyone, mentally and financially however you have continued to charge us obscene amounts of money for substandard accommodation with absolutely no remorse. How are you comfortable lining your pockets with the money of students and their families already struggling to survive in an economic climate where it is almost impossible to get a job? Your business is supposed to create a home for students not to take advantage of them for your own financial gain. All other businesses are struggling and have taken a hit due to the huge economic impact of Coronavirus however you have made the conscious decision to continue charging us full rent for accommodation we are unable to live in while milking struggling students for every penny they can possibly give you.

For the price it's really not worth it, for much cheaper you can get way better elsewhere. We had mice in our flat and it took months to sort it out and when they did they just put traps and poision in the kitchen.. so they were happy to leave dead mice behind the kitchen cupboards until they decide to refurbish it. Bedrooms are nice enough, comfy beds but they're small, good amount of storage and en-suites are nice but still not worth the ridiculous price point. The lock on the block door never worked and the main gate was often unlocked too meaning anyone could walk in whenever, reception helpful most of the time but lazy with logging parcels so you end up waiting ages to be able to get it. Maintenance were always good, quick and really friendly with fixing stuff for us. We had an issue with a flatmate and they weren't unbiased and took sides, not v professional. Good social atmosphere and made lots of memories but the it's way overpriced for what it is.

Covid-19: Option to extend stay for free if can't get home due to lockdown restrictions which I think is good and they provided a fair window for people to completely move out in order to not have to pay the last rent instalment.

Rip off, pay way more than other halls for way less. Single beds, no flat cleaners, no TVs. Walls so thin and building so rowdy on a night (security do nothing) that you cannot sleep. Living here has put me in so much debt (£152 a week?!?) I’ve had to consider dropping out many times. Avoid!

Their team is always available, I stayed here this year and have just checked out yesterday. They requested me to give a review and I was totally up for it because of such a great experience that I had. You can study in silence when inside your room and have fun with flatmates when you wish to, crowd here is great and they really tried to find me people in my flat as per my preferences.

This is one accommodation that allowed me to have store within the property and with Manchester's weather I had this as a blessing. The courtyard is always beautiful and fresh air is amazing. Cleanliness of communal spaces is always well taken care of and non-ensuite room students might face some problems as it's their own duty to clean but I totally loved this place as I booked an ensuite and stayed there.

Awful halls, £150 a week to stay in halls that have obviously never been refurbished since the 90’s. We’ve had water leaks, a broken fridge and no hot water. Everything is so old and dilapidated they only ever seem to change anything when it’s on the actual brink of breaking. The bathroom is only best described as a hospital bathroom which is why they never put pictures of it anywhere. It’s so cheeky of Unite to charge 147 pounds a week for such disgusting halls, when the halls through MMU (not a private company) are the same price and everything is brand new.

The location and the people there were good, but everything else was terrible - but if cockroach infestations, locks that break, flooding, black mould, no sofas and power cuts every 3 months (electricity and water) are what you want you can get all that for the low, low price of £145 a week then go for it :)

Well, what can i say. the most dreadful uni year of my life, was placed with awful flat mates as we specified to be with certain people because of a previous bad experience.The room we had was bog standard not worth £150 a week, walls were already peeling, a hole in my door, fag burn in the curtain bit like your cheap skeggy B 'n' B had about 5/6 power cuts and water outages since being there, kitchen doors hanging off, what looks like cum stains all on the furniture in the kitchen which again was bog standard, very dissapointed as went to flats on lower floors and they were worth the money. the heaters never heated the room were always too hot or too cold. Just an awful place not worth the money.

Only positive is the location and social life. Everything is is below average, laundry is awful (the dryers do not even dry your clothes because anybody can open them and stop the drying), rooms and dated, heating is terrible - heaters in bedrooms only stay on for 5 minutes at a time (in all bedrooms), kitchens are small, dated and dirty when you first move in, staff are useless, maintenance take weeks to respond to anything you need fixing. There are plenty other student accommodations nearby which are so much more modern and better value for money - don't waste your money paying £147 per week for this s*******.

Awful depressing place. Drains don't work, shower constantly not draining properly so floor constantly wet, shower mouldy due to above and fan not working. Smoke alarms covered. Hob and oven controls missing numbers so have to guess what temperature and ring you are using. Cleaning supposed to be fortnightly prior to Christmas none for two months. Noisy, thin walls. Common areas in flats dark, dingy and depressing. Absolute rip off for the money would not advise existing here

Pros- location, large bedrooms and kitchen area depending on the flat, furniture is alright but depends on the flat, kitchen door is soundproof so you can have music on without disturbing other flatmates. Ensuite is incredibly useful and great to have, Reception staff are incredibly nice and maintenance are friendly and helpful. cons- walls between rooms aren't soundproof you'll be able to hear each other having sex, showers a bit dirty and old, heater is iffy and doesn't work on some occasions. If receptions closed when parcels arrive prepare to have to hunt for it or wait a while, I have lost my parcel on 2 occasions so I just send my parcels to my home address than uni. You won't know who your roommates are or what they're like until you move in so if you're a neat freak or hate noise this might not be the best place as you can hear peoples conversations in the next room pretty clearly and the hallway echoes.

Pros: Close proximity to the uni and buses. Helpful not sharing a shower. Small flat size is good. Cons: Internet is very unreliable. Rent is very expensive- you'd expect newer facilities for that price. No proper social experience. If you have loud and messy flatmates, sleeping is not possible. No guarantee of being put in a flat with at least one person who is of the same gender. Reception can sometimes be closed when parcel delivery people come, so be prepared to wait for your stuff. The accommodation is close to the motorway, so total noise pollution is high. First term had a lot of fire alarms being set off in the block in the early hours of the morning. Heating also cuts off and isn't powerful enough.

Nothing gets fixed, the whole building smells. My ensuite has no proper ventilation so everything smells damp all the time. The noise levels (traffic) are insane and the curtains don't block out the lights from sirens. Also report everything in your room because if you don't you'll get charged (£71) for issues that have remained unfixed from the previous year. Staff are friendly but unhelpful, everything is done slowly and to a poor standard. There's constant drilling and it always starts at 9am, they also make a lot of surprise visits to the flat at stupidly early times. Experienced a massive bug problem that they did nothing to fix. A HUGE waste of money and living that close to uni isn't worth it as you don't make friends, you can't sleep and everything is of a low quality.

This place sucks. The staff are rude. The place is grotty. We had fire alarms every night at 2 for the first three weeks and two long ass power outages where all the facilities were unusable. None of us have been remotely compensated for this. Also if you have something broken at the begging of the year it will stay broken. Compared to the standard of the other acomadation this is NOT worth the money.

Always noisy from them drilling yet no work looks like it's been done . They do water tests and light tests almost every week so you aren't able to have quiet enjoyment of the halls. They take ages to give you your post , even if you know from the carriers that it has been delivered they still won't give you it . You pay £142 a week for this is a joke . Complete waste of money

Good accommodation in terms of location near MMU. But the staff here are so poor, and fail to give you a good service. I was overcharged for my first rent installment which left me in debt for my first weeks at uni. They know very little and the staff at reception are useless with most problems or concerns. Maintenance staff aren't the best either and tend to leave things unfixed or problems half solved. I've had an awful first year experience here, but am aware this may be one of few bad experiences. The cleaning staff however are lovely and the cleaning ladies in particular are very friendly and always say hello. Accommodation can be loud at times, but that's student life for you! Would highly advise people to stear clear from living in block E... It's the absolute worst.

wonderful placement for city centre and university, however a huge flaw in the management of this place. Staff have no interest or power to correct any issues in flats. Kitchens have pests and are in dire need of refurbishment, mine had no skirting around the counters and had mouldy food under them from the day i moved in. Walls incredibly thin and corridors are very echoey, may sound like nit picking but with very heavy fire doors for each room, slamming doors are a daily source of disturbed sleep, even from people just using the bathroom. TL;DR: good placement, but extremely expensive for what you get.

PROS: Great location for MMU & Oxford Road; Lots of shops nearby without having to go to city centre; Staff are friendly and very helpful; Maintenance team are helpful and prompt too; All bills included & unlimited; Each flat has one larger room, presumably for disabled students so you're lucky if you're given one of these; Free gym at another Unite accommodation 10 mins away; free kitchen cleaning is nice; walls and doors are pretty soundproof. CONS: Internet constantly cuts out; Heating isn't good, it turns itself off when the sensor reaches a certain temperature but doesn't heat the entire room; Living room isn't comfortable or cosy; Not much bedroom storage so don't bring too much! OVERALL: New Medlock was my last option but I'm happy I ended up here rather than a more crowded flat. The price is very high though, so I won't be staying another year. Ideal for first year students new to Manchester due to location and support.

It's crazy expensive for what you get, the rooms are tiny, boiling hot! I'm on the motorway so i can hear everything vehicle go past and the curtains don't stop the light so it gets really bright in the morning

Way too expensive for what you get in comparison to other halls with en-suite facilities, like Birley which are much better value for money and more well equipt for less money a week. However in a good location and well built and clean.

Although it is a bit more expensive than other halls it is definitely worth the money. Great service and friendly staff

I stayed there last year, absolute rip off, single beds, showers that dribble, eat and cockroach infestations! The staff are nice but the night staff are useless! Kitchens are grotty and dated, so overpriced

It's not amazing value for money, but it's like a little village that's in a convenient location.
