Pros: great location, modern building, decent sized room, en suite bathroom, double bed and a good kitchen. Cons: no sound insulation in the walls, not the greatest staff, temperatures in the room are hard to regulate, poor social life. Denmark Road is a nice place to stay if you want to live close to the university campus (5-10 min walk) and Oxford Road (2 min) with a great amount of busses to take you around Manchester. Not having to rely on public transport in the mornings should not be underestimated. Let’s be honest, nobody likes waking up for those early 9am lectures. That is probably the biggest advantage of living in Denmark Road. The building is modern with some decent common room facilities. Mainly a lot of empty space though, with a small seating are, a pool table and a ping-pong table. The rooms are bigger than average and come with double beds which is a big plus. You will have a lot of space for storage including under-bed storage to keep suitcases or other large it

Pros: Location - the accommodation is situated close to a range of shops and supermarkets - 5 minutes walk from Tesco, Sainsburys in the other direction, and Asda is about 15 minutes walk. The university is only a couple of blocks away. Rooms - Decent size, double beds, lots of storage space and a place to hang your coats. The ensuite is perfect and actually looks like a bathroom (not like some of the other halls of residence). The bed is comfortable and have a decent amount of space. Cons: The walls have no sound proofing whatsoever. My room was situated next to the kitchen (the wall which housed the cupboards and shelving units was directly on the other side). Very noisy at times. Temperature: Cool in the winter, but extremely hot in the summer. Needs some sort of cooling system, especially on the upper floors like my room. Overall, though, I would recommend staying here.

If you are looking for a good lively social experience. Don't come here. There is no social life whatsoever. Lovely rooms and double beds with ensuites but if you are looking for a good exciting uni experience don't stay here. Take it from experience I would have a much better time at uni if I didn't stay here. Harsh but true.

Where to start. The simple fact is your paying for the location and that it is pretty new. The people that live here are majority the type that stay in rooms keep themselves to themselves. If you want more social look elsewhere. The rooms are nice so if you want to sit in there thats fine-providing you have a good temperature regulator on your body. If you are on the higher floors in the summer periods it is like a sauna. In the winter the lower floors are literally like living in the arctic. There is no central heating and expect one small portable heater to heat the whole kitchen. Which switches itself off after 20 minutes. The security and res life team seem to treat you as children they have to nurture not the adults you are. If i had the choice i would have chosen somewhere else.

Positives: -Big room, double bed, huge bathroom. -Well-equipped kitchen Negatives: -Non-existent sound proofing (i.e. I hear it when my flatmate's phone vibrates, sleep with the lullaby of my flatmate's snores, and can hear every conversation that goes on in their rooms, including what their mum is telling them on Skype) -Cleaning services: Most other halls provide cleaning of the kitchen, but not for Denmark Road. Which is okay, since university students should be old enough to tidy up their own spaces, but when you've got dirty flatmates who refuse to cooperate, you've got to be the maid. What's worse, when I first moved in, the room was covered with what I could only assume to be leg hair of the previous tenant. I wonder if any cleaning was done between leases. -Heating: Has a heater that shuts off every 2 hours. Meh.

I have friends in every hall and I can easily say Denmark road is the best one. Because all of them say you live in the best hall.

One of the nicest halls, rooms are big and nicely decorated. Kitchen and rest of flat are very modern and in great condition. A fairly quiet place but still have some great social nights out!

I absolutely love living here and wouldn't change anything. The staff is great! The woman in reception has done her homework and knows what flat your in just by looking at you and that makes you feel so at home and welcome.

Great for if you're used to a bit of luxury. But if you want a more social first year I'd recommend anything in Fallowfield. Whilst Denmark is great for if you want to do work it's kind of boring on the weekends. Absolutely love my room and kitchen though, it's definitely better than what I've seen in other accommodations.

Positives: You get a great living space with a TV, sofa, spacious kitchen between a flat of six people. Bedrooms are all large with a double bed and ensuite. One of the closest halls to campus, only a ten minute walk away. Potential Negatives: The cost is very high, just under six grand for the year, but you do get value for money, these are probably the best halls on the whole campus facilities wise. For most phone networks not great signal, and the wifi isn't extremely fast though decent enough. Cleaners only clean the corridors/ social spaces so it's up to you and your flatmates to clean your rooms and living space. Can be a little noisy if you're on a lower floor since you're in the city centre. Overall if the cost doesn't put you off I would definitely recommend staying here, they're great halls.

amazing location and rooms makes up for social life. Social scene isn't as good as fallowfield campus but still meet some amazing people. Vast amounts of international students tend to choose these halls
