I had a very good few months staying at Hulme Hall. Hulme has a great community with a real international influence which is great to meet people from such different cultures. The food is reasonable, the evening meals on weekends were appalling however. Excellent location very close to the Uni, Fallowfield and other halls of residence. The rooms are very nice indeed and the cleaners do an excellent job in the communal areas. However, I was subject to a burglary at Hulme (Birley Block) and the security is weak, both around the perimeter and due to a lack of cctv. Security only put up warning posters and I found the response to be wholly inadequate from the crime prevention team- especially as my room was previously burgled. Don't let this put you off however, just be vigilant!
Hulme hall has great facilities and location, but do not let this fool you. something that has been failed to mention on this site is the strict silence policy after 11pm. In fact members of staff (reslife) patrol the area and fine you if you are caught outside of your room after eleven, you don't even have to be making any noise, to be reported. This creates an extremely stressful living environment as you cannot leave your room within the hours of 11pm and 8am without being slightly fearful. You cannot watch a movie with a friend or even say hi when walking past someone in the corridor. There are also no communal spaces with tables and chairs in some of the blocks, this means you have to eat dinner on the floor if you miss the catered meal due to sports which clash or university work. I would not recommend these halls if you want to make friends and have some fun at university.
AMAZING rooms, close to campus, great bar, near lots of great areas. Frequently cleaned and DOES have a kitchen as well as catered. However, there are over 20 people on a floor to share 2 bathrooms, and it doesn't feel like the classic 'uni life', as common room is small and far away if you are on the top floor. Feels like a school residential trip that you don't cook for yourself and don't have that close knit 7-people-flat feel that other halls have. However you can meet lots of people all of the time so aren't stuck with any bad roomates.
Hulme Hall is the best hall, with so many different facilities like gym, squash courts and other courts as well as a bar for us to just sit and chill with hall mates!! The blocks are newly renovated and it's just a great experience.
I was really concerned before moving into hulme all, however they refurbished everything and it is all new which is brilliant, also the bathrooms are shared but I've never had to wait and they're always kept clean which is great, food is shockingly good with a hot breakfast every day, better than at home I kid you not, also there is also some cool events at the bar, (although some can be bad like Halloween 'party'), price is a bit expensive as other halls have been found to be cheaper but it is very social which is decent
Hulme Hall is a quiet hall, yet has a lively social scene. The bar organises many fun events and the fact that the hall is catered is also very convenient for after a long day at uni. The living spaces are very comfortable, however Houldsworth is in need of a refurb despite being a very beautiful looking building. The location of Hulme is excellent, only a 15 minute walk from uni and has a large variety of supermarkets nearby. I am really enjoying my experience is this hall and would recommend it to everyone!
