Most helpful review

Burkhardt House is the place to be if you want to be sucked of all living joy and life, becoming a recluse. One of the main problems is the rooms are boxy and old fashioned. The kitchen appliances are from the 20th century and the carpets have been in place since the beginning of time. This leads to a repulsively smelling area to live. Staff are rude, unhelpful and miserable, but then again they live in Burkhardt House so it’s inevitable. Avoid this halls of residence at all costs.

Welcome to bird car house, we were blessed with a free addition to our flat of the 4-legged, fury kind: our temporary pet Jerry the mouse. Burkhardt house is suitably situated close to the uni however Victoria park is a ghost town so don’t expect to make many friends!! Would recommend if you’re a 80 year old 21 year old virgin who enjoys being alone

Burkhardt is an excellent hall if you want to spend all of your time hiding in your room away from all of humanity, whilst also being threatened into silence because you will get fined for a noise complaint at 8pm. The staff are great because they have nothing better to do than shut down any social interaction you want. The one good thing about Burkhardt is that it teaches the different types of mould which can grow in a bathroom, which they refuse to fix. I have decent flatmates at least, only one of them picks his toe nails on the kitchen counters.

Burkhardt is good if you want to have a quieter experience or aren't that into nights out 5 days a week. The social experience is good in that it is full of people who have applied to Fallowfield and not got a place there. The quality of the halls is pretty good to be fair and I had a pretty good year here but the social spaces etc were limited and we had mice towards the end of the year which was only okay because we were the top floor.

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.

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.
