This hall is one of the more modern of UoM halls, and also is ensuite. It is a short 7 minute walk to the university so is an easy commute. As it isn't in Fallowfield, the social life isn't 5/5 but the halls put on a lot of socials and events to meet new people. In terms of cleanliness, the cleaners don't clean unless you keep it in a reasonable state. Even when that is done they barely touch the surface. Duty tutors are on call 24/7 if you have any problems but often I found them unhelpful and dismissive of problems as if they weren't an issue. Overall, this hall is of a decent quality with nice facilities and is probably best suited to someone who wants a nice balance between their social life and focusing on their degree. Probably perfect for medics and people who have demanding degrees.

Fantastic central location for Oxford Road & supermarkets, Superdrug, Wetherspoons & loads of buses just 1 minute walk around the corner from Halls. Walking distance to university is around 7-8 minutes so perfect for those wanting a longer lie in & brilliant to pop back for lunch. It's not the cutting edge of the social scene but if I'd wanted that I would have picked Owens Park & waded through everyone's puck on a daily basis. If you want to be social it's not a problem as there are plenty of things going on at Hulme Hall but you need to make more of an effort as the mix of people tend to be more content with the slower pace & not the raving party animals you find at some other halls. Rooms are relatively modern & the ensuite facilities are clean & well maintained.My room was very bright & sunny & I settled really quickly. The flat of 8 was a great mix of both boys & girls who all seemed to have the same way of thinking with regards social life and work balance.

The room is very small with a latched window that doesn't allow much ventilation creating a claustrophobic atmosphere. The room smelled awful when I moved in and I had to spray air freshener on the carpet. Little light could get into the room as I was on the bottom floor and there were bushes outside the window and there was no privacy from outside unless I drew the blinds so I spent much of my time in the dark. All the floors are locked off from one another to minimize the chance you will run into fellow students. It's a bit like like living in a prison cell to which you own the key. The price is relatively expensive for the area and studio apartments are available for £15pw extra. UoM shouldn't offer this accommodation to their students it's just not on! Other rooms in Hulme were OK but you shouldn't risk it, go private.

The location was perfect, 2-3 minutes off Oxford road and two bus stops. We were also lucky to live close to Lidl, Tesco and Morrison's. The halls arranged a couple formal dinners which were nice. There is a student halls bar there which is always empty, which is weird, because the drinks were quite cheap. They arranged lots of events, which weren't that popular. Our neighbours were the worse people ever. They were complaining all the time, even in the first day of freshers' week. They were loud and noisy too, but we never complained because we were students and living in halls. Some of the flatmates in our flat got an official warning even though we didn't do anything wrong that day.
