St Anselm Hall is an amazing place to live! It has great sense of community, people are very friendly and helpful! There are always people in common room which is well lit and has cozy armchairs. The hall has it's own bar which is open 3 days a week and is quite nice and cheap and where social events are frequently run. The rooms are quite big and have plenty of storage room and are just as good as in other halls. There's a library which is accessible 24/7, which has lots of books, several desktop computers and a printer. Common Spaces ( common room, corridors, kitchens and bathrooms) are cleaned twice a week by cleaning staff. Location is quite nice, there is a park in couple minutes walk, and hall itself is surrounded by greenery. Main Campus is 20 min walk. North campus is a bit far but there are bus stops right outside the hall which will take you to North campus ☺️

Q&A


Q
What are the traditions of St Anselm's Hall? The dinner and the gown thing? Is living on the ground floor fine or does it have issues with pest control? How do people use their phones if there is only an ethernet connection available?

Hey there! Indeed, the main traditions include wearing a gown and attending formal dinners, during which a 3-course meal will be served to you by kitchen staff every weekday. In addition, the student run bar counts as a tradition and we have several annual events that are always really well organized (like the hall play, Easter ball and many more). Lastly, we have a great student committee body t...

Q
hi what is a super single room at anselm hall ?
By member1131849 On 1st June 18
It's a slightly bigger room than a standard one. It also includes a sink, maybe a larger bed and a bit more space. But normally, you need to apply for it early on as they are in great demand.

When i first walked into this hall, i was horrified at how old it was, the corridors are dark and it was very quiet. The rooms are pretty big, especially in summerfield, and there is a lot of storage and wardrobe space. However, the rooms are very old, carpets are quite dirty, and there are lots of gaps in the walls. The ground floor had cockroaches in, and building maintanance came round various times to clear them but they kept coming back. No social space, except the bar which is quite good and cheap. Kitchens are quite modern, but no nowhere to sit, and the catering is not great, often went hungry in this hall! Victoria park as an area is horrid, don't want to walk around at night alone as will probs get mugged, or at least followed home, which is horrible About a 25 minute walk to main Uni campus which isn't bad. Overall, not great but okay.

This is a collegiate experience in an otherwise ordinary university - the community is tight-knit. It's catered every day of the week which allows people to get to know each other very easily. The hall has a lot of traditions that seem quirky and unnecessary at first, but do a lot to bring the residents together. It has its' own gym, squash court, snooker room, ping-pong table as well as large common rooms and its' own bar - The Cellar Club - run by the students. The socials are very frequent and well attended during term time which brings the community together even more. Overall I'd say this is the best place to live in Manchester, at least the best university accommodation available.
