Hi everyone,

I'll be starting my undergratuate course at the MMU this year and now I'm searching for accommodation.
Now I might not be the typical first year student, by already having a degree and being 25 years old. I'm not sure if I would fit into the MMU accommodation in a flat where mostly everyone is a "real" first year.

Do you have any reccomendations for other students housings, as I still want a shared flat ( at best with en suite ). Of cousre I'm also up for parties and drinks and want the flat to be social.
But I maybe might be a better fit for a flat where people are more my age?
Or can anyone share their experience as a "mature" student in MMU accommodation?

I'm grateful for any tip or recommendation!
Thanks

I realise this is late but I'm a current first year student and mature student. I was 28 when I moved ih not halls (Oxford court). There was another girl my age in my block and several other students in their early to mid 20s. I've loved my time here. I think oxford court has a reputation of being a quieter accommodation but theres definitely still plenty of parties and everyone has been friendly and sociable. My age has never been a re real issue and I've made a wide range of friends in my time here from 18-28 so don't worry too much about being a mature student. We're all first years and all in the same boat regardless of age.

Thanks for your answer.

yeah I'm still torn between halls and renting privately. I only got a room in a 8 bed flat, which might be too much for me (wanted to get into oxford court, but it was full ) but if nothing else works out, I hope I will be fine there too

Hey, I’ve seen that you’re looking for an accommodation and I am actually looking for a new tenant as I won’t be able to move out for my last year at Uni. The accommodation I signed a contract to is Five Victoria Point and it’s a 2 bed apartment, me and my friend both need 2 people to take over our lease. If you’re interested let me know.
