Living in Mill Point halls in my first year of my Business degree was possibly the best choice of my whole entire life. Being a small-town girl from Wales I never thought that I would fit in many places and having to share kitchen accomodation was possibly the worse thought for me.
I got there a week earlier than most people to get a feel for my environment and it was great!!!
I can still remmeber my first day there, everyone gathered on the grass for greeting drinks so that you get to meet people on your course or people who just go to Manchester Univeristies or Colleges, infact I met my best friend on 3 years by having greeting drinks. The music was playing, everybody having a social drink on the benches, laughing and smiling.. security were present on-site (as they are 24/7)so you felt safe just incase people got to rowdy.
Mill Point accomodation is definately ideal for your first, second or even third year, people are social; the reception, security, maintenance and House-keeping team were amazing, if they can help they will.
Laundry facilities were always responibly priced and you even get couches and a tv to chill with your friends of an eve although its like big brother your being watched by CCTV. Ideal transport to all major sites and cities within manchester. Great for dominos deliveries ;) and a gym & aquatics is literally a 10 minute walk away.
Majority of the time I would park within Mill Point and although it is pricey it is better than getting a parking ticket every morning from the sneaky traffic wardens who must have got me at least 4 times before towing my car away for £200.00 release fee!
I see other people saying that they think Mil Point are out 'to get ya' for all your money.... to be honest ye okay they do charge a dear price for parking and for burns, damages to walls etc... in all fairness if you were to live in a professional flat like me now you get charged a ridiculous amount of deposit fees... a ridiculous amount of damage charges... its life at the end of the day and every landlord will be worse than student halls!
My friends and I still remember Mill Point as the best year of our life and we would do it all again.
