When I got to Manchester, I ended up in Owens Park (tip, if you put OP anywhere on your application, you're likely to get it). Owens Park has a reputation for being a party halls and that's fine if you're into that kind of thing ,but I got fed up with the constant early hours of the morning fire alarms and loud music being played at night. I not seeping, which caused me to miss early morning lectures and I started getting bad migraines. Also, my anxiety got really bad. So I applied for a transfer and ended up with a room at Dalton Ellis, which was a real stroke of luck. It's a very sociable place but not in the way OP is. With it being in Victoria park, it's closer to the university and roughly 20 minutes to walk, or you can get a bus if you're running late. I would highly recommend DE for sociable people who still value getting good sleep!

Lived in DE for my first year, social aspect was bang, internet was super as well, the only downside were an aging canteen and it was a bit chilly in winter.

I lived in Dalton Ellis first year and it was not that bad. Everyone was really friendly and sociable but the biggest problem was that there was no common room, kitchens were so small - literally two people can fit in there but not be able to move and 1 shower on the whole floor. I lived in Graham. Location wise was a bit scary walking down the road to the bus stop, did know quite a few people who had been mugged - so recommend taking the 50 bus. Cleaners are friendly and cleaned well but the problem is with the students, they do not keep spaces clean. Overall, definitely not worth the price. Oh yeah, the food is terrible

I was in Graham Block - the worst block. Showers frequently flooded, heating often broke and the walls were horrible breeze blocks that didn't keep the heat in. There were NO common rooms in the block. The other blocks weren't so bad, but not ideal. It was expensive even for a catered hall.
