Read Bramall Court Reviews
Isolation is what you can expect from Bramall court. Crippling, lonely isolation. The lack of a social enviroment when you live here is honestly depressing as there is a single common room and you will likely only have 2 flatmates living with you. There are no other student accomodations close to the building so unless you actively seek out other people to socialise with, you will find that this will be the most lonely building you can live in. The building is also old and mould is present in many of the rooms and kitchens. The lighting is dark, especially in the bathrooms which doesn't help either. Can't say I have enjoyed living here at all and would absolutely not reccomend it to people planning to study at Salford or Futureworks.
The worst place for any student to live, avoid at all costs! I unfortunately made a terrible decision to stay here for one year instead of six months. Where do I start? Firstly, the images that were shown of the place when I stayed there last year, was not what it was when I arrived. Secondly, your walls are not sound proof at all, so expect to hear all your housemates conversations and whisper in fear they will hear all of yours. Thirdly, Bramall Court has a serious insect issue, if you leave your windows open expect a hoard of flies and spiders in your room, in all seasons. Fourthly, the kitchen is a safety hazard. The oven and electric hot or stove whatever you call it is old. The fire alarms always go off because smoke always comes out of it.
DO NOT MOVE IN HERE. I have only given one star because you cant give less. The rooms are massively overpriced and well below par. The internet is horrific. The paint was peeling off the walls. The staff are far from helpful. The fire alarm was set of constantly. The bathrooms are tiny. The kitchens are substandard and barely serviceable. There were parcels and letters constantly going missing. People who didn't live in the building gained unauthorized access on multiple occasions. Someone from a neighbouring building flew a drone up to residents windows. The common room was trashed within a month of moving in, and was left unusable for a while. The bathroom doors are not secure and can be opened from the outside. If you're flatmates don't clean the kitchen it can result in money being deducted from your deposit. Bramall Court is so uninhabitable I had to move out before even completing the first term, and was unable to claim back any rent despite the multiple issues.
Wifi is so dodgy, so you can't even do work at home, you just have to suck it up and go to the library. Decor and furnishing literally haven't been changed for decades it feels like some 1970's prison. Such a dusty place as well, all my work is always covered in dust. It's not worth whatever you're paying, trust me it's a genuine s*******.
It's not actually a bad halls of residence, the maintenance people are lovely and they're always keen on helping any issues that arise. The wifi tends to be quite awful at times, not constantly but more regular than wanted. The social space is fairly small, it could be a lot worse though. Location is an absolute beauty, not the halls itself, but it's close to a Nisa and the Manchester city centre; not shabby for the adelphie and peel campus either.
So cold and uncomfortable. The rooms are small-ish. If you're on an odd floor number then there's no elevator. It's cheap (£92/week I paid for mine) but no where near value for money. It's the closest of the Salford lot to Manchester, so that's a positive. But that also means its furthest from Salford University. And the bus is so unreliable that quite commonly at 8-9am and 4-5pm it will just skip Bramall Court. However, there are only 4 people (at the max) to a flat. But the kitchens are falling to bits. Literally some cupboards without doors and taps that don't work, as well as heating in one of my flatmates rooms. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are much better deals available at Salford University.
