Endcliffe is a bit of a trek from uni/ the city centre but being a whole little village itself- equipped with a shop and bar- that doesn't really matter (There's also a bus stop right by it). The atmosphere around the place is always amazing there's always people around and lively parties with open invites. I loved my room and especially my little en-suite. The rest of the flat was nothing special but once we decorated and put a tv in the kitchen it was well used and well-loved by everyone.

Endcliffe is a really nice place to live, it's well looked after, clean and got lots to do around it.

Not too far from uni, the rooms were excellent, plenty of storage space and a great sized desk to study. en suite facilities were great

The rooms are quite small and the furniture is dated for the amount it costs. However, the village store and the edge are both handy facilities to have near to the accommodation.

Great accommodation. Facilities are reasonably modern and rarely broke, and were fixed very quickly when they did so. Very social atmosphere and a good bar on site with cheap drinks and a large screen for sports. Always felt safe and didn't hear of any theft on site. However the site is a fair distance from the campus and I cannot understand why a gym wasn't built on the site as this is similar distance away. Would highly recommend to any first year student.

Living in Crewe hall, which is standard accommodation. The rooms are big and everything is in pretty good condition, and my flat is great. Showers get blocked sometimes though. Definitely glad I went here

the location is a bit far out, as it's a half an hour walk to uni, and 45 mins to town. It's really nice being in a student village with everyone but the flats themselves are not very modern, and only have single beds which is a downside. Overall good accommodation.

Endcliffe is a wonderful halls for the most part. Modern design, good location, the Edge opposite provides cheap food, cheap pub and free activities and classes like sports and yoga. The staff are always there so if something goes wrong they will come within minutes to fix them The best part about Endcliffe is how is looks, the green spaces, the little lake by Vale flats, the ducks, the steps, the trees. It's got a really rural feel even though it's in a city. The only thing is the rooms are a bit small but it's expected in halls.

It is in a really lovely location, however a 30 minute walk from uni. The rooms are nice and maintenance are very good at responding. Our kitchen is very spacious and has good facilities. The only down side is lack of cupboard space. But overall very good

Close to uni campus and good bar on site. The bedrooms and kitchens are good sizes and the communal areas are cleaned regularly.

Endcliffe Village is University of Sheffield's biggest student residence village. Depending on which part of Endcliffe you live in your walk to the SU and the surrounding buildings may vary with the average walking time being around 25 minutes. The walk to West Street's bars and pubs is around 30 minutes but there buses going there from Endcliffe frequently. In Endcliffe there are separate buildings for students who have been allocated a shared bathroom, en-suite or self-catered residence hall. Within each flat you'll be separated into flats of 5-10 people. Depending on the size of your flat and your flatmates your experience may differ but nost studentd tend to find living in halls very social. If this is not for you, don't worry as you can inform the university of your desire to live in a less socially active and more quite environment. The room sizes depend on what type of accommodation you have gone for, shared bathroom halls tend to have bigger rooms due to the fact that there is not a bathroom in your room. Having said this the size of the en-suite rooms are still big enough for you to fit all of your belongings and still not feel cramped afterwards. The only downside I noticed is the high price for accommodation. Yes, en-suite flats are not cheap but they can certainly be found for a lot lower price than what the University offers them for and closer to the campus.

I was in Endcliffe and it is great as it is secluded in its own village away from everything else however it was a long walk back from nights out etc. I was on bottom floor so had difficulties sleeping as everyone would be loud coming back from nights out every night. Especially nice during summer when everyone sits on the grass with BBQs.

Ranmoor is about a 30 min walk from uni and out of the city so getting anywhere means a fairly long walk. The location I didn't like because aswell as that, there was nothing surrounding the halls, no bars or pubs and not even a shop. They were expensive for what you got, and I personally had a bad experience where they charged me a large amount (almost my whole deposit) for an unnessessary new mattress. The only good thing about Ranmoor was that most of my friends were made there.

I lived in derwent flats in first year, it was good but wayyyy too pricey. Yes it was one of the nicer buildings but the social aspect was awful, only ever socialised with my flat. It's a good distance from uni but that hill

Endcliffe and ranmoor are great as this is where the majority of first year students live meaning your friends are neve more than 5 minutes away. Most rooms have en-suite bathrooms, which was a must for me as one doesn't have to share a bathroom with people you don't know who may not be the cleanest. There is 24/7 security which means you never feel unsafe whilst in your flat or walking around endcliffe at night. However as it's such a bit village there are many maintenance issues, which are usually fixed quickly, but are an inconvenience

The location is a but further away from the uni so it's about a 20 minute walk to most of the university buildings. It's near a parader of shops that has a Morrison's, Sainsbury's and Costa to name a few. There is a building called the ridge where they hold Zumba, yoga and have a gym as well as study space and table tennis, a pool table and a PS4. I lived in ranmoor so there wasn't much socially apart from activities in the ridge, but endcliffe is a 5 mins walk away and you can go to the edge which has a bar and a cafeteria. My room was decently sized, with an en-suite bathroom but the shower was cold most of the time :(. Not a lot of wardrobe space but there is space under the bed and air of desk space and shelves. Bathroom is a wet room with an inbuilt shower. Flat size varies depending on your building but I shared with 6 others who were quite messy unfortunately but you could be lucky. Overall was a decent experience but if I had todo it again, I'd choose city accommodation just because it's a lot nearer and saves me money on bus. PSA: if you lose you keys or get locked out, security can open it for you at any time of the day/night, just call them.

In first year I stayed in Stephenson Hall, catered accommodation, which was an incredible student experience, primarily because of the people I met in it and the good times we had. However, at times this was overshaddowed by the excessive shared damage charges which were shared with the whole corridor, reguardless of whether we even used the other corridor and no one got their deposits back. Another problem with this accommodation is the actual accommodation, it is extremely small and not even shown on university open days it is that disgusting. Shared showers are not for everyone understandably and the canteen food is horribly overpriced to the point where £50 a week can only give you one evening meal a day and a sausage bap. Despite its many flaws, it has its own library and hall and is university renowned as being one of the loudest and most enjoyable halls socially as you are forced to get to know each other, it just depends whether you are in halls for a year of fun or study.

When I moved in it was only 3 years old! Great communal space, large ten bedroom flat! All en suites

Great buzz, great quality, mine was a good size, some were smaller! 20/30 minute walk to uni. Holds some of my best memories in those halls! Would’ve stayed there if I had the choice 100%

Lived in Crewe flats which is very close to endcliffe, great size rooms. social aspect is almost entirely luck if you get a large flat of 10 then guaranteed a few people will be sociable and go out with you etc. everything was pretty great.
