    Hi,

    I am looking at applying for accommodation at Manchester Metropolitan, but I am a bit stuck on which one to go for, and I was wondering if anyone can give me some help.

    I've been looking at both the Birley townhouses and the Cambridge halls but need help on what would be the best for a student who is doing Primary education. I am a very social person and enjoy making friends but I want to be in a location that won't purely drinking/partying based or too noisy.

    Hello!

    If you're not dead set on living in halls I do have a really nice room available fairly close to the university?

    Birley townhouses are right next to the building you would be studying in but slightly further from the train station and city centre for transport links etc for placements etc - Cambridge is known as the wild party hall so sleep may be an issue.

    Avoid Daisy Bank and Wilmslow Park - too far away. Most other halls are fairly close together but all are slightly closer to All Saints campus and not Birley (Brooks Building).

    Hi futureteaching, AmyPilot is right, all of our accommodation apart from Daisy Bank and Wilmslow Park are within walking distance to the Brooks Building, where your course will be based. The Birley Townhouses and Flats are the closest, however we have students from the Primary Education course staying in a variety of our accommodation so you wouldn't be alone if you choose not to stay in Birley.

    Did you get the chance to see any of the accommodation at an Open Day?
