    I'm applying for accommodation at the moment and would like en-suite, self catered. I wondered which halls are the best in terms of a social, friendly atmosphere? I don't really want to be on City campus but don't mind between Fallowfield and Victoria Park

    I'm in Burkhardt House, which fits the criteria you want, and it's got a pretty good atmosphere.It's part of Hulme Hall, so you're pretty much right next to the bar, which frequently has good nights on (lots of jazz and big band stuff, comedy, sports, film nights and so on) most of which are free, cheap drinks, pool and a friendly vibe. Burkhardt is quite a pricey halls, but the rooms are good sizes and it's been quite recently refurbished so everything is nice. It's well-placed too, just at the top of the Curry Mile, it's 2 minutes away from the bus stop, so it's easy to get to both Fallowfield and the city centre (though both are max 20 minutes walk away). Unless most of your lectures are on north campus, pretty much every uni building is a short walk away (eg Stopford is less than 10 minutes away, Uni Place about 10 or so, same with the library, SU, learning commons, Roscoe, Zirchonis etc.). Even though you're not in Fallowfields, the student social centre, it's easy to get to, plus there's plenty of social stuff happening in or around Burkhardt/Hulme anyway.

    Richmond park is a good choice for you. Self-catered, en-suite, in fallowfield and it's pretty new. Close to the sports centre and good bus links.
