The bedrooms and social area were so modern and very up to date! The building is also recently new so everything was in good condition. Sharing a bathroom with only 1 other was also a big plus as many other halls have to share 1 between 10/12.

Such an amazing accommodation the best idea to pay a little extra!! The location is so good right next to the Brooks building it takes less than a minute to get to my lectures! Everyone is like a little community and the reception staff are really helpful and are available 24 hours. Overall such a nice accommodation, the best bit is the kitchen/lounge as there's so much space!!

I stayed in a Warde townhouse with 11 other people and it was amazing! The area downstairs is perfect for socialising with your housemates, and you don't have to worry about cleaning all the time as a cleaner comes in once a week! The bathrooms are shared between 2 people - which also gets cleaned by the cleaner. The location is 30 seconds away if you study in the brooks building and is only a short walk away from the rest of the uni buildings!

Birley is a great accommodation! The location it's self is reasonably good as it is less than a 10 minute walk to most building on campus. There is a cop right next to the accommodation and a Asda, B&M just up the road. Birley is very safe as sercuity patrol around the well lit outdoor areas and living areas every night! In terms of how social the town houses are I would say very the big kitchen space allow for you and your house mates to have lots of space to pre-drink, watch tv and maybe even have a house party. The rooms themselves are outstanding the walls a pristine the only downside being that the 3 quarter bed is on the smaller side. The bathrooms as lovely everything seems brand new and sharing is no problems at all! I would 100% pick birley again as a first year student!

I really enjoyed living in Birley and thought that it was definitely the best accommodation at MMU, as it was very modern and all the facilities were working and brand new.

The location is pretty ideal, right next to the Brooks building or just a 10 minute walk to every other campus. Living in a town house of 12 people means more opportunities to make friends, great social life. The room is a good size and laid out nicely.

clean, close to university and sociable. Whilst we shared the townhouse with 12 people we only had to share bathrooms between in pairs, which meant that tidying was much easier. 24hr office was brill for collecting packages and late maintance queries.

Decent halls, rooms are quite big and the staff are sound. Have to pay for washing which is expensive and the WiFi isn’t the best. Cleaners do a decent job every week.

Birley fields is the newest accommodation for MMU and it is certainly the best all round. I have recently just moved out of one of the dale townhouses that consist of 12 people and I wouldn’t have stayed anywhere else. The rooms are very spacious and all the facilities are brand new. 12 people sounds a lot but it works so well giving that there are 4 floors. The maintenance guy was also the nicest man working for the Uni he really deserves to be recognised

Birley halls are modern, clean and very nice to live in- and are also very sociable, with a nice garden area for sunbathing BBQs in summer. The price also includes a weekly cleaner and bills, which is very handy. Being a short walk away from the Brookes building, too, is a very handy feature if you have any lectures in there.

Such good halls, loads of other students living nearby so really sociable and fun, especially in the summer time. Close to town and uni, not difficult to get to lectures. The living spaces were cleaned weekly.

Amazing accomidation! Nicest one I’ve seen, sociable place, good bedroom space, right next to the university and near the centre and nightlife.

The accommodation is based in a really nice area, surrounded by plenty of other student accommodation. The university and city centre is a walk away which is convenient. I think the area is really nice, and you feel extremely safe with security and gated accommodation. I enjoyed living with 11 other people and the social experience was really good. The rooms are a good size and I really liked mine. The bathroom is only shared with one other which I particularly liked.

I lived in dale, one of Birley’s accommodation. It was a townhouse with 11 other housemates! It was wonderful, I loved it a lot, very sociable as you live in a kind of circle facing everyone! Right near bus routes into town and only a short 10 minute walk into the city centre! If I were to go into halls again I would 100% choose Birley still!

Location is great for all uni buildings especially the Brooks Building. Plenty of shared facilities in the kitchen even with large number of people using them. I was allocated a disabled room which was not needed for any disabled students so plenty of space. Normal sized bedrooms are quite small but plenty of storage.
