Read Bramall Court Reviews
My boyfriend booked to get a flat here for his first year starting September, and tried to be optimistic despite reading some of the bad reviews on here. I wish there was a 0 star rating!! The disorganisation of the place was a shamble, they told me I was allowed to bring certain items of my own when moving in, yet changed their mind on at least 2 occasions, causing so much confusion, therefore this is one of the horrific reasons I wouldnt recommend here. They didnt even allow my boyfriend to go and visit the place, never mind see any accurate pictures of it! Bramall claim that the reason for this is due to COVID, yet they should not be expecting students to find an accomodation based of incorrect pictures, and my boyfriend decided to stay elsewhere thankfully. We found the process so much easier in another student accommodation based in Salford and they actually enabled us to have a viewing, unlike this nightmare of a place who continued to give us excuses!!
The place is in a very good location, right in between Salford University and the city center. However, they are a very greedy place, I had to evacuate back due to pandemic, and they are refusing to refund me for the rent (approximately 2000£) I paid in advance. Apart from keeping students money, which that should already tell it's a big red flag, the apartments are not what they appear to be in the pictures on the website. The apartment has a lot of issues. The rooms are very dirty and they have mold all over the walls and ceilings. The walls are very thin, so you can hear everything your flatmates and roommates are saying and doing.
Avoid this place at all costs. This building is disgusting in every way and please if you are considering booking here, come and see what the place is actually like before you book - I can guarantee you will change your mind. It seems like there hasn’t been been any renovation or decoration since the building was built in the 70s, there is barely any paint on the walls, it is filthy, the kitchen is an embarrassment. The oven is vile, they are some cheap cooker made in the 90s, the heat that comes from them is crazy, and the amount of smoke that comes from them almost always sets off the fire alarm which is extremely annoying. The rooms are freezing. The management are absolutely horrible, especially the owner, I believe she is called Julie - extremely rude and arrogant considering people are paying her 4 times too much to stay in her dump she calls accommodation. Shinead that works in management is lovely though. Simply put, find somewhere else because this place is not worth £20 p/w.
Most god awful place I have ever lived in my life, the pictures shown online are very misleading as the rooms are tiny, disgusting and full of insects. Everywhere in the flats were grim and no care was taken in making any flats at all presentable as everything was outdated or broken. If I could rate 0 stars I would so avoid this disgusting place at all costs
Let me not even get started. This hall of residence will sell you dreams, the price isn’t too bad but, when you live there it’s 100% WORTH finding a new hall even if it’s little more expensive. The cleaning is bad there’s always a smell in the lift and downstairs literally everyone notices and the lifts always have some type of mess or puke. Like 20 people have been stuck in the lift it’s sooo broken and always under maintenance. The social room is alright no one uses it but, it’s really cold and not that big. The rooms
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.
