The Hollings building definitely needs an upgrade. The library is good, and if you are nice to the staff they can be very helpful.Report

My halls and the other options for Manchester metropolitan are ridiculously overpriced for the services you get. When applying for Halls mine were advertised with a gym and swimming pool free of use for residents. Once I arrived in wilmslow park halls I was told the pool was closed and the gym was going to be refurbished from December to April. Therefore I had been lied to. The best part about my accommodation is the double bed and en suite in every room, the worst would have to be the location, it's not round the corner from university campus it's a short bus journey or 20 minute walk. Certain halls are better than others, some you have to share a bathroom between 10+ people, others also don't have a sociable living area so people don't speak to their flat mates. Cambridge halls are known as the party halls, although I've been to one party there and it wasn't brilliant. Wilmslow park halls in my opinion are best for money or Victoria hall depending on whether an en suite or double bed is in your priorities.×

The university site has a well equipped speech clinic which is a valuable resource whilst studying for a practical course. It is particularly useful to have our own library based at Elizabeth Gaskell so that we do not have to spend time travelling to and from the main campus library. The university has a wide range of services on offer on the main campus, such as information on many different student matters.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
