    Hey guys, newbie poster here so I apologise if this is in the completely wrong section.

    I've been accepted into Manchester Metropolitan Uni and when I went to an open day a while ago, they said that because I live within a 25 mile radius I was ineligible for Uni provided Halls, which I was fine with because I wanted to stay at home anyway.

    Upon getting my results I've decided I don't want to live at home - the whole freedom and independence thing etc. but I've had to apply for private halls by the UNITE company, at New Medlock House. I've read some reviews about the company in general but I'm getting mixed reviews - I know one of my older sisters used them to live in when she studied at LJMU and she had no real problems.

    Anybody tell me whether it's a good idea to go ahead with this or whether I should just stay at home or not?

    Cheers a bunch :-)

    I went for it! It's better than living at home, Managed to get into Block B.
    I'd do it if I were you it'll be easier to meet people and getting back from town will be way easier! Plus its basically next door to Man Met business school and All Saints campus

    My friends brother stayed at home and felt like he didn't get a uni experience and didn't make as many friends so ended up dropping out.

    I too live to close to MMU so opted to New Medlock. I'm sooo excited and it's close to all saints campus so I'm happy

    I haven`t been there. I`m also really excited and nervous at the same time. I hope to have normal/crazy people in my flat

    So are you going to be there on 7th September or later?

I think the seventh is sorta early was gonna turn up like the 15-17th since my mates don't go away til then and my course doesn't start til 23rd Only thing I'm worried about is if I end up with proper quiet stay in people! Only went into accommodation for one reason! When you turning up at?

    I'm in flat 74, so neither of you are with me
    I too am worrying about moving in because I'm usually really bad at meeting new people, but that's why I'm looking forward to university!

    Look forward to meeting you guys

    Well, for couple hours or days it`s going to be awkward (being around new people). But everything is going to be fine..

    Think I might end up going for this accommodation because I doubt mmu will offer me uni accommodation since it was my insurance and only applied on Thursday!
