5 minutes walk away from the campus center. Safe housing with gated entrance. Melville Grove is a 5 minute walk away from the campus centre. The rooms are spacious with lovely communal areas of a joint kitchen diner. The Facilities are modern and functional. It's the cheapest accommodation offered by the univerity of Liverpool. It's a very social atmosphere with communal out door areas allowing you to meet other flats.

Amazing location - walking distance to uni, town and train station. Good for being social but less social than other halls like Carnatic

Very clean building as newly renovated and good amount of people within the living facilities. However there is little availability for socialising an it can make it difficult to meet other people within the halls

Great facilities: big kitchen, spacious rooms and cleaners 2-3 times a week. Cheap price and lots of events. Social life is fun, only problems included not having its own permanent reception and some of the RAs.

I loved living at Melville as it’s on campus and easy to get to lectures. It’s also pretty center in Liverpool so easy to get to nightlife and town! The accommodation is really modern and nice and clean.

Melville Grove is an excellent residency when it comes to location and outside looks, but when it comes to comfort I cant say the same. Lights bright as hospitals, beds that gives you back pain and really pour taste when it comes to decoration of the rooms. The outside common area is really nice, I just think they could put some heater lights so we wouldn't freeze while having cigarettes. They have an amazing staff that will always help out when you need anything and are always in good mood doing so. Overall is a good hall to live in, just needs a few improvements.

The location was excellent - very convenient for both university and town. The double rooms were fairly spacious.

Melville Grove is one of the university halls of Liverpool. It is very close to the university, and just opposite the Sydney Jones library which is perfect for late night study sessions. It is only a short walk from the city. The facilities are very modern; each bedroom has a sink and the bathrooms are cleaned to an excelled standard.

Actually think it’s the best University accomodation at Liverpool Uni. All like individual houses, but part of a complex that has events so you meet and socialise with people from other houses. Single rooms are good size, no enquirer (not a problem - don’t know why this is deciding factor for some) and gets cleaned like 3 times a week. Only downside I think is that it is expensive (though it is the cheapest University accom)

Quiet small single room but storing space is huge. No nearby social area because the reception is 5 minutes away (also a burden is you locked yourself out because the reception is relatively far. Very close to the south part of the campus and only 4 minutes walk to the Sydney Jones Library.

Amazing location: 5-10 minute walk to lectures and a 15 minute walk to town. Big kitchen with plenty of room for cooking, hosting prinks and socialising. Melville Grove is like a village in it's own right with seperate houses but plenty of communal areas. My room is big enough, has a huge desk, a double wardrobe, plenty of shelf space and room to move about.

I was in it whilst it was being redone, the only issue with our houses was that where was no communal area which had enough seats for everyone. Other than that it was a good place to live. You could walk into town if you were brave and there was loads of space in the kitchens and bedrooms.

Accommodation nice and homely vibe with layout of houses, however social experience lacking due to this layout
