    I have my heart set on attending here next year, to study International Fashion Marketing.
    I'll be studying a foundation year first though, because I've not achieved enough grades within my first year to get on the 1st year.
    So I'm looking for Accomodation surrounding the All Saints Campus. I can't seem to find anything that compares it.. is there a website?
    Or can anyone tell me their views on any of the halls?

    you asked for a website lolz
    Wilmslow is a popular one all rooms ensuite but it depends on what you prefer sharing or not as each person is different im there on weds this week at an applicant day for my degree so i can let you know about what halls i visit though i am going for Wilmslow as i looked at this in more detail on the opal website (one of the private run ones) even though you can apply to Wilmslow via MMU on the 1st April the private run ones are taking applications now but you do need a deposit which is 2 weeks advance rent

    Halls located around All Saints Campus are as follows:
    Oxford Court ... Cavendish Halls and Cambridge Halls (ive heard Cambridge is popular and share with alot of people the bathroom) and Briarfields Hall (these are MMU halls)
    New Medlock House... Student Village ... Cambridge House ... Sir Charles Groves Hall and Victoria Hall 1 (these are privately run halls)

    maybe google them and see from each page as far as i know there isnt a website that does a comparsion like you can do with Universities
    But ulimiately its what you want from your halls ensuite or not sharing with few or upto 10 people etc etc

    http://www.mmu.ac.uk/accommodation/p...r-brochure.pdf
    the prices though are 2009/10 ones listed but they havent updated the pdf for 2010/11

    i looked round Oxford Court today as i went to the applicant open day they are 4 rooms in a flat you can either share same sex or mixed though sometimes you wont get what you preference.
    i thought they looked tiny to be honest

    I didn't go. I had my heart set on mmu after the faculty open day (: still need to choose my halls though. I've got to go near all saints, cos I've got to do a foundation year. Because I've messed around too much in my last two years of college to actually get a good grade :/ haha

    hey,

    i have got a single ensuite room to give it on rent for £75 pw including bills. its in private student hall called MSV SOUTH.its preety close to MMU. if u r intrested plz email me on [email protected]

    thanks
    talk about spamming the boards much ash_1 every single thread on MMU with same ever thought about using GUMTREE to advertise or asking the accommodation block you signed to to help ... most people on here have already organised and got their accommodation sorted out.
