    Cambridge is very close to the Business school and is pretty lively. Daisy bank is about a 30-40 minute walk away, always has parties going on and is about £20 cheaper a week. Oxford court and Victoria hall are also pretty decent and are very close to the Business school

    Hello.. I need some info too about the halls. I am an international student and will be joining MMU for the BPTC. Was considering Daisy Bank Hall taking into account that the rooms are ensuite and then cheaper than the rest. But then, I wanted to know if the area is safe. That is,in simple terms, can I walk around without any fear of being attacked.? Besides, is it a noisy place, because for the purpose of my study, I dont think i'll have time to party and all but rather will have to stick to my study desk.

    I'll be highly grateful if someone can enlight me on this. Thanks

    Don't think any uni halls would be described as quiet although some are more "party" than others.

    Daisy Bank is quite a way from the uni campus and the city centre.

    Don't think anyone can give a guarantee as to safety - but personally I have encountered no problems but it is a city location so there are always more issues then a quiet campus university.

    Daisy Bank is at least a 40 minute walk away from uni and some parts close to it aren't the best. I would say choose a hall that is closer, the 40 minutes walk gets annoying very fast and the buses from daisy Bank are very unreliable which would mean you could be late to your lectures a lot

    I am taking a loan for the purpose of my studies.. so wanted something comfy yet not very expensive since my postgrad is already costing me a lot. Is there any student accommodation which is near the MMU law school and not very expensive?

    Manchester Student Village is right next to the uni and the good rooms are around £107 a week which is only around £4 more a week than Daisy Bank. It doesn't have an en-suite though.

    Victoria Park, Oxford court and Cambridge are pretty good, close to uni but more expensive.

    Okay.. yeah..
    I need the en suite. I've never lived somewhere with 'shared facilities'. That is going to be the most difficult thing for me i guess.

    I think that I'll have to opt for daisy bank if I don't find another convenient place. :/

    That shows all of the halls owned by the uni so you can look through it and it clearly shows if something is en-suite

    ohh okay.. seems really hard to get a proper place unless you can afford the expensive ones. :unimpressed:
    Are you on a course at MMU?
    I've never been away from my country.. that's why I am being very choosy and difficult too maybe :P

    Try looking at the website for Manchester Student Homes - you can search for all private halls on there.
