Overall, the rooms aren’t bad. They do look quite nice and the bathrooms are spacious in comparison to other accommodations across Manchester. However there is no communal room for the students living there to interact. It makes the “living out” experience quite boring and lonely. To improve, there should be a communal area for students to chill and talk also with the prices they’re asking for, the Wi-Fi should be a lot quicker and we should feel a little more safer living there.

The location is amazing it’s close to uni and all the necessary shops. Reception staff are very friendly! Other services within the accommodation have not been great. The heating breaks every 2-3 weeks and although it gets fixed quickly when reported, it’s been a constant issue. It’s frustrating during the winter as we need to wait until Monday for it to be fixed. There are also no lifts and we have to climb 8 sets of stairs every day. There was also an instance where mice were all over the accommodation- there was literally one in my ROOM (this happened on a friday) and we were told to wait until monday for pest control. This was completely ridiculous. Overall, I paid the same last year in a different accommodation and I never had these problems. Here, the heating has been temperamental, we’ve had instances where no water comes out the taps, power cuts and obviously the whole mouse situation. It’s alright because of the location but I am not coming back next year.

Mice and cockroaches spotted, nothing has been done about this by the accommodation team at all. Situated in an unsafe and loud location within the city; lots of shouting and drunk people at night as well as several drug dealers hang out in the carpark. There have been incidences of violence such as with knives in the near vicinity, mainly in the carpark. Not worth the money at all. There is no social area and kitchens are very small considering they are supposed to facilitate 7 people.

Please do not stay here, for your sake and for the sake of future students. Asides from their general response to RODENTS (mice have been found in bedrooms/kitchens too many times!) and maintenance issues being appalling (and the quality of the rooms are also below standard), they also fail to acknowledge the situation of the pandemic, refusing any refund or money back despite most residents not currently being able to stay in the accommodation. Dwell has failed to share the burden of the pandemic with its residents and have decided to maintain its profits, whilst the rest of the world (health staff, businesses, employees, students) struggles. If someone is considering moving into student accommodation for the first time, please remember: You will spend most of your time there, having to eat, sleep, wash etc - prioritise places that make you feel comfortable and relaxed (this is not it!) and not just somewhere close to the university (you can always get a bus).

When my daughter moved in the room was already filthy. Waste coming up through the shower, mould in the bathroom broken window latches, evidence of rodent activity! Don’t let your child stay here it is truly disgusting!

The worst. Mice everywhere. Scary and loud location. Everyone complains about their roommates being unclean/loud/rude/unsociable. WiFi is slow. I never feel safe here. Don’t come here. Whoever rated this place 5 obviously works for the company and is trying to take your money.
