Denmark road is definitely a must for students who enjoy personal space and foresee themselves cooking a lot in a comfortable kitchen. It has a very comfortable sized room with double bed and sufficient storage. Bathroom is of comfortable size as well. Lounging area in the main block is well furnished. Common room in each flat is modern, a simple place to have people over. Only possible drawbacks are: 1. Denmark road itself may be slightly dangerous / history of snatch thieves 2. May be far for students whose classes are mainly past Uni place 3. Not the most sociable (especially if you are first year)

The social experience was very good - it was nice living close to so many people. The facilities weren't of the highest quality but it was the cheapest halls so I did not mind. It would have been nicer if everything wasn't so green. Having a proper sofa/ enough comfy chairs would've made it easier to socialise in the kitchen.

Lovely, modern halls with a great common room. Can be quieter than other halls but has lots of regular events to get to know other residents. Super close to uni!

In a perfect location, 5 minute walk from the campus. The rooms and kitchen space are great, although there were issues with cooking facilities and draining that were not sorted out for the entire year. Staff were lovely but sometimes lack of communication was very problematic. Overall would definitely choose it again out of all the manchester options.

Good rooms but maintenance is a shamble. Need to improve on fixing requested items promptly. People there are great, I was fortunate to have made friends with all my room mates.

Quite frankly the highest standard halls out of all of the university's halls that I have seen. Great double bed en suite. At £145 per week it seems a lot but worth the extra £10 say if you're looking for the most luxurious hall you can. If you're looking to have a massive year long sesh then maybe stick to a cheaper hall with constant social life, allowing you to spend more on booze etc... ;) Only problem was the water was off for almost two weeks and compensation was a mere £20 voucher, which is quite frankly shizer. But have heard far worse nightmare stories. P.S. the halls are five minutes from the Uni campus and shops so gives you extra time in bed for the 9ams so not so bad.

Very modern, but the heating turns off automatically after 2 hours which is very unfortunate for the prize considering how cold it is in the UK!

Denmark road student accomodation is in perfect location for University of Manchester students as it’s a 5 minute walk to the campus. With en-suite bedrooms and double beds this accomodation is definitely one of the luxurious ones! The communal area consists of a sofa and flat screen TV perfect for movie nights in with your flat mates. Now i will address the issue: what flat mates? Denmark road is definitely NOT a sociable accomodation. With each flats usually occupying 5-6 students you can almost guarantee that none of the students you’ll meet are up for going out, socialising or even interacting. Moving to university is terrifying enough as it is but then being greated into an empty flat (despite all rooms occupied) is even worse. All through freshers i made contact with only 2 of my flat ‘mates’ which comfirmed that they along with the rest of the flat don’t like socialising and are here solely for studying. Freshers would have been hell if it wasn’t for my friends at other accomodations. I even moved flats within Denmark road but it was much the same. Luckily i was able to transfer accomodations in October to the Fallowfield campus which was MUCH more sociable, despite the accomodation not being as nice. Therefore, Denmark road is perfect for students that want to focus on their studies in quiet, nice halls but if you want the ‘uni experience’ i’d suggest looking at accomodations in Fallowfield, probably Oak house!!

This is a great location and the room I had when I stayed here was great. Kitchen areas were very modern and had a great view. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

The location of this hall is it’s main selling point, it’s literally a 10 minute walk to the uni and a half hour walk into the city centre. It’s rwally close to supermarkets and shops. However the walls are far too thin for it to be a perfect experience, you can literally hear people talking normally in the next room. You can’t watch tv in the kitchen without all of the other rooms being able to hear. The rooms are pretty small but they are nice tbf. Although often the gates and doors to the buildings aren’t locked so anyone can walk in. The kitchen living room is a nice space because of how big it is.
