    Hey

    MMU is my first choice for September (literally cannot wait!) and I'm currently choosing which accommodation to stay in. So far I'm drawn to Daisy Bank because of the free bus pas however where does the bus go to? Does it go to the center of Manchester and to the MMU campuses? Is the pass completely free and unlimited for a year? How easy is it to get a bus? Also how long do they run for?

    I'm stuck between Daisy Bank and Briarfield. If you have any advice on each one then please tell me:-)

    Sorry for all the questions, ahaha.

    Thank you!

    Hey,
    I lived in daisy bank last year. The bus takes you anywhere in Manchester via magic and stagecoach buses. If you walk down Daisy bank road to Anson road there is a bus (50) which takes you to All saints campus however this bus was sometimes unreliable as it could be late meaning a 15 minute wait then two buses show up at once. Alternatively walking further along to Oxford road there is usually plenty of buses to catch. Yes the pass is unlimited and it's fairly easy getting the bus. In my opinion the bus pass is worth it especially as it is the cheapest en suite accommodation. The only problem I had at daisy bank was noisy neighbours (in particular the people above played music all hours) but that you will have to cope with in first year haha
    Hope this helps!
