Brilliant location near town and right on the uni campus. Kitchen gets cleaned once a week so it's not too bad living in a flat of 10, bedroom is a decent size too!

The location of the accommodation is perfect a one minute walk to the Business school, easy access to town and train stations. The social experience is good, lively and always something happening. Brilliant accommodation for first year students.

Can't fault the room for the price and the uni is always quick to respond to problems. However your halls experince is really dependent on the people you live with because of ho close living Cambridge is

Close to the uni and the city centre. Very good value for money and problems with the flat or rooms are sorted quickly.

The size of the halls were great, accompanied by great facilities. Just lacked a common room with a pool table/table tennis table. However, room and kitchen was very well equipped. It was also very easy to apply to student living and the staff were always helpful.

The location of Cambridge halls is brilliant, it's a very short walk from all University buildings and only a 15 minute walk from Oxford Road train station and 25 till the city centre. The facilities are reasonable, 2 toilets and 2 showers between 10 surprisingly works well and the kitchen is good enough for what you want it for. The social experience is amazing, you meet many people in the courtyard before and after nights out and everyone is friendly and finally the rooms, I didn't spend much time in my room but they are a good size for sleeping and doing some work, wouldn't have needed any bigger.

You get what you pay for! It’s nice and cheap and for £106 the only thing I wasn’t worried about was sharing a bathroom with messy people, but that worry quickly left when I moved in. Having a cleaner really helped keep the flat nice and “live-able”. I got lucky with my flatmates and location was brilliant. Only downside to halls was laundry. I was almost paying £5 per wash which I feel it a bit expensive. Internet also cut out quite a lot but reconnected eventually.

The social scene of Cambridge halls is very good compared to a lot of the other Manchester met halls, however you do not get your own bathroom but the price of these halls are lower than the others. The location of these halls is amazing most of my lectures were around the corner from Cambridge halls and very near the centre of Manchester.

Facilities are terrible, everything breaks and hardly anything gets fixed. They are the most social halls and besides the dirty kitchen and the broken stuff there the best at man met by far.

The rooms are a good size and have everything a student needs. The kitchen is also a good size but this is the only communal area and there are often times where I wish the flat had a lounge. The walls aren’t very sound proof at all and so everything can be heard room to room. The cleaners don’t clean the kitchens properly and so you end up cleaning yourself. There is only two toilets and two showers tho I’ve rarely had to wait.

The halls are in a good location. E.g. They are on campus so really quick for getting into uni and also they are close to the city centre and lots of clubs, bars and restaurants. The flats are shared between 10 people with 2 showers and 2 toilets. Sometimes showers and toilets would be gross. But that is down to house mates and the actual facility was fine. Kitchen was also sometimes really messy but again sharing with 10 people isnt easy. There is only 1 oven and space for another so would be great to have an extra one. Also whenever there were maintenance problems, someone would usually fix it straight away. The room is a decent size with a good amount of storage and big desk, there's a sink which is very handy but the bed is a little small. The halls have quite a lot of flats and sometimes it was really noisy and would be kept awake. Overall good accommodation but for me, I found it hard to share facilities with a big group.

Overall the experience has been great. Lovely flat mates and overall a nice experience. The only problem would be the mess/ all the pans etc being burned + all the forks disappeared

Suitable sized rooms, with a single bed and floorspace, really big table is great. Lots of storage space and shelving is really useful. Great security with 24hr reception who are lovely people. Large kitchen, no sofa or comfort areas only one large table with hard seats, would be better if there was another oven as one between 10 people can be chaotic. Fortunately communal areas are cleaned weekly which is a saviour as some people are still used to mummy n daddy doing everything for them. Can get quite noisy but what else can you expect from student accommodation. Washing machines are very expensive. WiFi can be dodgy. Location is amazing and really makes it worth any little issues, quite cheap.

Location is great as it is close to all uni buildings and close to shops and nightlife. Rooms and kitchen are basic but okay. Sharing bathrooms really isn’t bad at all it’s no hassle.

The location of the accommodation was the main reason I applied to stay, it was the closest and best value for money. The facilities were okay, lots of storage in the bedrooms however we had major problems with the wifi in the kitchen all year and no one would do anything about it. The social experience was lively compared to other halls however it i my belief that this is often down to luck of the draw and who you end up sharing with.

Unbeatable location. A little pricey. Great Staff. Standard facilities. Hit and miss social experience depending on who you end up with obviously.

Incredibly social, the best place to make friends. Cheaper than all the other options with the smallest rooms. However if space isn't an issue for you then these are the halls for you. Can be very noisy and security often come and shut down afters. Other than that it's a great place. V close to everything in town to.

They halls are in a great location, 2 min walk to uni and a quick 5 min walk into town. I like how there are so many people and quite a number of flats. The most annoying thing is the fact there is no "chill out" space in each flat with sofas. Its just bedrooms and a big kitchen which isn't very comfortable when just wanting to chill out.

The facilities are basic, with often not enough cooking and shelving space for everyone in the flat (a flat of 10 with 1 very small oven, and not enough fridge or freezer spaces for one each). However, the facilities are well maintained and cleaned well by the weekly cleaner. The maintenance people are efficient and quick to respond. Overall, the halls are decent.

Good sociable halls but with minimal luxury. Having a cleaner each week included was a massive plus side along with the excellent 24Hr reception where you can leave your keys when you go out or home.
