How safe is the city? Watch
Moreover are the security facilities in the accommodation halls adequate ? in my experience yes, but it might vary between halls.
And lastly would you say it is more of a vice city than other busy places like London? Nope, its a big city, it has its share of crime but its no worse than other big cities really
agree with all of that. Its perfectly safe so long as common sense prevails.
Not a problem.
I feel safer out in Manchester than I do in my local smaller town.
Not a problem.
If you stick to the studenty areas and the city centre, with a bit of common sense you're in no greater danger than any other city.
I am not saying these areas are not save, but it dosn't make sense to say only to stick to them when they are much safer areas. Just avoid big council estates as a general rule and stick to the main roads.
Burglaries are fairly common due to the fact that half the houses in Fallowfield are student accomodation so they know they'll be 4 or 5 PCs in there, along with MP3 players, TVs etc. and students are out alot. The only thing to do is check all windows and doors, don't leave valubles in sight of the window and use the burglar alarm. All common sense really. Or just don't live in Fallowfield.
As for the halls, most now need security card access so you are really safe from crime.
manchester came 6th.
i've never been mugged in manchester, and don't know anyone who has been.
only seen 2 fights on nights out this year too. in some places in this country you see a fight on every night out!
pfulham, theres no need to be posting PMs with the same questions as in your thread. you should post all general questions on here, then other people can see the answers too
EDIT manchester actually came 5th. bristol was also worse than manchester although manchester is apparently the least accident prone city in the country lol
Just be sensible as everyone else has said and you'll be fine.
