Halls were ok, made some good friends so made everything fine. Rooms good because of own bathroom and big desk area. Could do with more storage in kitchen - had my own cupboard but only half a shelf in the fridge and the freezer. Also, all the flats have ten rooms, which means that ten people share one sink, one fridge, one freezer, two ovens and two hobs. The kitchen is small with not a lot of space to prep if a few people are cooking at the same time, but the adjacent common room was plenty big enough. Location is good in terms of University as it's only a 20 minute walk to uni place - so 15 to the Student Union. It is off the main bus route though, but there is a bus stop right outside the halls and for the main buses to town it's only a 5 minute walk to Curry Mile. In terms of social life this is a quiet area and there aren't many shops close to the halls, the bar in the attached hall is the cheapest bar in manchester which is good, and freshers was good, but after a while it does get quiet. If social side is your priority then Fallowfield is definitely the place to be, I put en suite as my priority and although the halls could definitely be improved I had a good first year. They are also very expensive for what you get.
