Hi, this year ill be attending MMU (manchester met uni)

Tommorow is when accommodation applications open and im stuck between these two:

Briarfields hall -
http://www.mmu.ac.uk/accommodation/o...iarfields_hall
Pros and cons: £500 more than my other choice per year, very close to other campuses and central Manchester and the uni itself. Also ill be living with 3 - 7 roomates. (own room and en suite)

Daisy bank halls -
http://www.mmu.ac.uk/accommodation/o...aisy_bank_hall
Pros and cons: £500 less than other choice, 10-15 minuites away from other campuses, the uni and central manchester but i get a free bus pass, only 3-4 roomates. (own room and en suite)


I think daisy bank halls is abit nicer but its only cheap because its isolated. I want to make friends and go out and enjoy uni life but im not sure how much this will prevent me from doing so whereas briarfields is in the heart of everything. Also i want to make as many friends as i can so 3-7 roomates sounds good but im not sure if that will be too crowded.

Can anyone with experience please give me advice on this

Hi there, you'll be far better off having this in the MMU forum - have moved this over there.

One of my current flatmates stayed at Daisy Bank last year - she said it was fine. Personally, if you are not familiar with the area I would pick Briarfields - Daisy Bank is a fair way from the Uni (and its even further if you happen to be studying at Birley Fields).
