    Hey guys!
    Anyone else here thinking they'll be starting BIMM Manchester in September 2015?
    I'm hoping to start the Music Business course, and was just looking at accommodation and wondered where is everybody looking for their accommodation?
    I have heard mixed reviews about a lot of places and some are pricey so would value anyones advice!
    Thanksx

    Hey
    I've applied for music business and music events and hoping to get an offer.
    I've read some bad reviews about the student village but when I went up for the open day a lot of the students from bimm were staying there and it's the cheapest accommodation I can find, everywhere else is so expensive so I think I'll be staying there if I get an offer

    aw great! I hope we both get an offer!
    Yeah, I read some bad reviews about the student village, was hoping to try and get a visit there at some point! I did like the look of Student Castle but that's so pricey compared to the student village.
    Will have to let me know if you get an offer, would be ace if we were on the same course!

    Yeah student castle was so expensive! I'll be visiting Manchester in June so if I do get an offer I'll definitely book a viewing for student village then
    Yeah definitely, hopefully I'll get an offer for both courses, just torn which one I'd go for! If you get your offer let me know!

    Hey! Well done, that sounds great!
    Yeah, I've done a bit of looking and the few that stand out to me are student castle (this looks really nice but is really quite pricey), parkway gate and new medlock house. There's also the student village, which although has quite a lot of negative reviews online, I have heard that quite a few people like it there!

    Hey thanks for that. How do I go about applying? Are there any upfront fees? And is the rent due before student loans come in like in student village? Thanks

    Hey! I've got offers for Songwriting and Music Production and I'm going round Manchester tomorrow to look for accommodation. Grafton street looks quite nice and I'm also looking round Chandos Halls. Places seem to be booking up quite quickly!

    Hey
    Me and another girl, Elle that I have been speaking to who is also going to bimm in September have been looking at getting a flat for 4 in the student village they give you £100 off rent when you book a flat of 4 people and it's literally a 2 minute walk away from bimm so most bimm students stay there

    Hey guys, I've accepted my place for Music Business at Bimm Manchester and I'm wondering if anyone's thinking of staying at Parkway Gate? Tried New Medlock but got the 'Sorry, you missed out' page when I tried to book
    I've just heard that Parkway isn't too social so I'm not sure
