The halls were in a really good location, very close to town and university which is good for academic and social life. They are the cheapest halls so I didn’t expect too much, but my room was quite dark so I tried to spend as much time being out of it as possible. The flat was cleaned regularly and the bathroom was good. We had good kitchen facilities and were able to be social in there. However the walls were very thin so you could always hear people talking.

Cambridge halls is right across the road from MMU, therefore the location couldn't be any more ideal. Within walking distance there are a wide range of shops, takeaways, restaurants and clubs. Within the halls, you have access to a laundry room, a bike shed and a 24 hour reception which collects your post. The cost to use the laundry room and the bike shed is not included in your rent. The rooms at Cambridge are basic, but substantial. I chose a flat with a shared bathroom, there were 2 toilets and 2 showers shared between 10 people. It wasn't as chaotic and messy as I expected, and we all had our own sinks in our bedrooms. The rooms all had single beds, a desk and plenty of storage space, but were quite small. The great thing about the rooms was that they were all facing each other on one corridor, making the flat a sociable place to be as most of us just left our doors open while we were in and spent a lot of time together. There was 1 shared living space which was an open plan kitchen and dining area. This was ideal for socialising, and kept tidy with the help of a cleaner who came every week. The fault with the living space resolved around the fact that there was only a dining table and plastic chairs. There was no comfy living area to relax in, this had to be done in the bedrooms which are too small for a big group to socialise in. Altogether, the social experience within halls couldn't have been better. The flat sizes are large giving you the opportunity to meet and live with a big group of students, and within the building you are surrounded by even more.

Hilarious to live in, there’s always parties going on. Best of you make friends with the other flats in your block to really get the most out of it. The level of security is so annoying, they boot down the door if they think you’re having a party. We just had disco lights on one night while we had a cup of tea and someone kicked the kitchen door open shouting ‘the parties over’

Great location and I like the courtyard layout in the middle of the blocks but the flats themselves are nothing special. In the kitchen 2 grudges between 10 is a bit of a squeeze sometimes and the fact there is no sofa or comfy chairs is a bit of a downer too. Rooms are quite good expect the bed isn’t too comfortable but it is the cheapest halls so it’s understandable to an extent

Good to meet people through the amount in the flat, however only cleaned bt a cleaner once a week and if you report an issue e.g shower flooding they can take up to a week to fix it

Good location, can walk everywhere. Room is decent. Kitchen is a mess. Loud facing the union when people are out late at night; not ideal the night before an early lecture

Room is tiny but decent enough, nice cleaners every week, no sofas in the kitchen though just uncomfortable chairs

Compared to other halls I’ve seen these halls were a lot nicer, they were modern, big kitchen, decent room size, my room even had a sink in it, two decent toilets and showers, and a storage cupboard. However, I had a few issues with the room. Most importantly the window. It was absolutely tiny and I felt like I was in a prison. Barely any sun got in and made it quite depressing. Also there was no full length mirror and I personally need a full length mirror so had to buy my own. Socially, these halls were pretty good, with 3 flats on each floor you had enough people around you. However the biggest flaw of all was there was no sofa, only a kitchen table which although is a Necessity, it was difficult to chill out at.

Cambridge Halls are right round the corner from the university buildings, not too far a walk from town and close to most clubs. However, even though their one of the cheaper halls, they’re nothing special. Rooms are decent but small.

Can get seriously messy due to the amount of people, and always seems to have a bad smell in the kitchen. I live on the top floor where it seems to be the worst
