Most helpful review

This accommodation is in a really great location being not too far away from uni making it only a 20 minute walk away. However the halls could use a bit of updating as they're quite old fashioned. The rooms are perfect size, for me personally, however the communal area is a little small (especially if there's 10 people all wanting to use it at the same time). There aren't any sofas and that is a bit of a downside as the chairs that are there in place are awkward to sit on and aren't really all that comfortable. Despite this though I have really enjoyed living here in Canterbury court, it has been a friendly and social environment.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Last year when I found out this was my accommodation, I looked at the reviews & saw that someone had written “it has the atmosphere of a concentration camp”. My family assured me that this would have been an overreaction by someone who hadn’t enjoyed themselves & I would be fine. After having lived there for a year, I can honestly say their statement was spot on, infact there was probably more laughs in a concentration camp than in Canterbury Court. DO NOT MAKE MY MISTAKE- dont be deceived by the close location to uni and the ensuite bathroom it is not worth it, go to Fallowfield instead. Canterbury Court is a place where souls come to die. There is nothing positive I could say about this accommodation other than due to the 0 social interactions that take place there, you don’t get kept up at night by flat parties. If you're a normal person who likes socialising, going out & plans on having friends at uni DO NOT LIVE HERE. P.S. Human faeces came out my taps once.

There are not enough words in the english language to describe just how sh*t my experience of Canterbury was. If you value your time and money, do not live here. You will have very dodgy wifi and no signal, at all. Your social life will die along with your will to live in. If you are wanting to meet new people and go out for nights out in manchester, you will be much better off in fallowfield, as Canterbury has people with the social skills of a wet flannel. To top all this off, despite the maintenance man being lovely and will fix your problem once hes been advised to, you will go days with out hot water (which sharon doesnt think is an urgent problem), an issue they cannot fix straight away from "the CO emissions" that is located next to the boiler. However, the silver lining to this f*ck awful excuse of a uni hall, is that the location is quite good. You have a 20 min walk from main campus, and 35 from north campus. Also the cleaners are lovely. Dont make the mistakes I did. Go fa

Its an overpriced prison cell. I wouldn't recommend you would be much better off getting a house share as it will be cheaper and you will have a better year of your life. Room is tiny, cleaner fines us most weeks for an overflowing bin (eg pizza box is on the top = £10). Flat gatherings get shut down by RA (reslife advisors) who are very nice but like a bit of quiet. Cleaner does do her job however must love the extra cash on fining us for eg two pots in a sink bearing in mind there are 10 people to a medium kitchen. You will have kitchen problems things going missing and being used and there will be a person reporting everything from noise in the kitchen to a pasta jar going missing and then there will be a formal meeting with fellow adults discussing a pasta jar (try not to laugh). The bar is cheep however the type of people that live at seems heavily populate this bar and they are the type to have never socially integrated before and their mummies and daddies pay for it - don't ge

This was a total nightmare. Horrible staff (reslife). They will fine you for the most minimal stuff- be warned a noise complaint sets you back £500. Very unsociable place to live as people are seemingly afraid to talk to each other.

Nobody speaks in Canterbury Court, it has the atmosphere of a concentration camp. I got fined $550 for dropping the iron on the sofa and leaving a burn mark on it. The sofas are probably worth about $70. The Res-Life Advisers will try and use any excuse to take your money and when you actually need help they don't do anything. Even if you are unsociable and like your own space i would advise you not to come here. 15-20 mins walk to the nearest grocery shop and there is no way to get there by bus... To get into uni you might as well walk (about 30mins) because by the time you get to the bus stop your more than half way there anyway. Yes, it takes 15 minutes to walk to the bus stop and it rains a lot. I honestly cant think of any positives for this hall sorry.

If you are in any way social, do not apply for these halls. I regret not living in fallowfield so much. I'm not even that outgoing but this place is beyond a joke! Nobody speaks to eachother, and it's in the middle of nowhere. I also got fined for things I didn't do!

Cleaners don't seem to do much, location is probably the worst at the uni, so far from food shops but buses are frequent to uni.
