Great halls, sociable, but walls are thick so unlikely to be disturbed by noisy housemates. Friendly staff, easy to use facilities. Big kitchen for 7 people and have cleaners so the place is kept nice and tidy. Good location, easy to get to town. Really good for being the cheapest halls.

The accomodation is great, the rooms are a decent size, the building is so close to campus,the kitchen is a good size with enough freezer and fridge room for everyone. The smoking areas have enough room for everyone to sit with places to dispose of cigarettes when done. The fact that Melville grove is a 5 minute walk (max) from most lectures proves this to be a good choice,along with the fact that it is the cheapest UoL accommodation but really doesn't disappoint at all.

Choosing halls before you start university isn't an easy decision. Saying that Melville Grove was my first choice and I'm very glad it was. It's only a 5 minute walk from uni and 20 minutes from town. The accommodation is very nice with a spacious kitchen and living room which are great for pres. Also it's the cheapest self-catered accommodation going at Liverpool.

Definitely the best halls of residence for an all rounded experience! Layout of the houses is great and although its shared bathroom they are cleaned for you along with all other communal areas (eg Kitchen). Ideally placed on campus with only a 15 minute walk into town and bars round the corner. nice big kitchens and social areas inside and outside.

Amazing accommodation, very expensive compared to other universities, but the cheapest at Liverpool and the nicest. Modern houses with a triweekly cleaner, big kitchen, two bathrooms and seven people per house. Great atmosphere and very family like houses. The Student's Union are also working on making the rent cheaper. And the best location, directly on campus, 2 minutes from my lectures.

Great location and friendly atmosphere.probably slightly less social than halls such as Carnatic due to less people in each block but very enjoyable year spent in these halls. Quality of facilities is excellent

The halls themselves are a slightly different layout to what you would expect as normal student accommodation. They are set out like little houses. They have two shared bathrooms between 7 people and thought that may put some people off, I much preferred this to having an ensuite as the bathrooms got cleaned 3 times a week so there was almost never mess or dirt, as the same with the kitchens. The cleaners even emptied the bins so we didnt have to! I had a double room and it was very big and spacious. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Melville and was lucky to meet a great group of friends, although some people may say it isnt the liveliest of the halls! The price is also why I chose this accommodation as it was the cheapest option on campus but in my opinion also the best value for money.

Very sociable accommodation with nice setup shared bathrooms beds are mainly all singles. Close to the university only a 2 minute walk to most lectures.

I'm so grateful that I could be in Melville in first year. I think they are one of the best halls for socialising. You get to know so many different houses just by sitting outside during freshers because everyone congregates outside. The RA's are dead relaxed and so you never get done for having loud predrinks or anything, but in Crown the pres always get shut down at 11. The halls are new and modern, and so are up to Crown Places standards now. The was the layout works means that 7 people share a house, with a big kitchen (2 ovens/stoves, microwave, kettle, toaster, 3 fridges and a freezer) and 2 bathrooms. The shared bathroom thing really shouldn't put you off, they're bigger than the single bathrooms that you would have in other halls, and they get cleaned for you so they're not grim at all. You have to share at home anyway so its not a big change.

Most under rated accommodation in Liverpool. Very good location to the university and town. Most friends who have came to visit from Crown and Vine have said they would choose Melville if they could choose again, the shared bathroom had put them off but the cleaners come most days and it's honestly fine sharing. The kitchen facilities are good and any problems get sorted within 3 days. Also the most sociable halls due to the layout of the houses and the smoking area (even if you don't smoke) helps you make friends with people you don't know from other houses.

Great location to uni, 5min walk to guild, 15_20 mins into town. Really sociable halls as people make friends outside at parties, RAs are helpful and get involved in socials, cleaners are really friendly and the rooms are a good size

Really homey and good space. The use of furniture is brilliant utilisation of a small space also! Would recommend to anyone! So close to University meaning you cal literally roll out of bed to go to your lectures whilst also walking distance for nights out! Round the corner from a Tesco Express which is open late and so handy!

Loved how it was like a house - different to any other halls. very sociable and was very modern and the cheapest out of all of the new accommodation

Lovely place to live and the rooms are spacious and it has the feel of a lovely community. The halls manager is great and it is a great place to live on campus as it's about 10 minutes away from everything so you can wake up late and still get there on time.

The facilities are excellent, clean and modern. It is a short walk from all of my lectures and the gym and the guild which is very useful. the grounds are clean and open and very good for socialising. Just a slight issue with litter in the grounds.

Couldn't ask for a better accommodation, gorgeous houses: big kitchen, nice bedrooms, nice bathrooms. RA's are really nice and it's very secure, gates and keycards. Perfect location, two minutes from the library, 20 minutes from Liverpool One and 15 minutes from the clubs. Fairly expensive but worth it. Wifi not good but it isn't at any of the accommodations.
