This accomodation is very clean and well looked after. We are given good maintanence staff and cleaners through the year. It’s a great start moving away from home into nice accomodation. This is big and clean.

Halls were very clean and spacious and the arrangement of them into flats made the experience very social. The kitchen was large and spacious so many parties could be held in there also making it easy to make friends.

Really modern buildings in a beautiful area filled with greenery. I always feel very safe in halls and have access to everything I need.

Halls are of a decent standard and give you a decent amount of room for all your stuff. Well prepared on arrival and mostly all in working order. However rooms can seem a bit stuffy and dark and bathrooms are wet room style making them quite inconvenient to use.

Perfect room with storage, ensuite and big desk. Kitchen gets cleaned every other week and maintenance comes quick when you need them. Good student village bar and store and only five minutes walk to other supermarkets and restaurants. Expensive but you have a lot of opportunities and very good facilities

Although Endcliffe is a half an hours walk from the main campus, it’s a great village with its own shop, bar and canteen. Within the village there are a number of different blocks containing flats, most of which are ensuit with their own unique colour for each block. I loved endcliffe as it meant that you were living near most of your friends so it was really sociable and fun.

Halls here was great fun, i had a huge kitchen with loads of space and all my friends were relatively close by. Downside was that the walk to uni was around 30 minutes to the top of campus, but longer if you were in a building further south. Also washing facilities for clothes are a pain to walk to and use in general.

As far as halls go, they're very standard. A decent size, good condition, exactly as you would expect. I have a single ensuite room and it's a very standard room. It's nice and easy to make homely. The vast majority of people I have met live in ranmoor/Endcliffe which is great when you have pres or when you need someone to walk to your lectures with If you don't know where you're going. Loudest nights are Wednesday and Saturday. Having a bar with good food on site is great because it's cheap and a good place to hang out. It is rather expensive though. My house next year will be a few hundred pounds cheaper than my accommodation. City accommodation however is a lot cheaper.

Great buzz around halls and located in a lovely student village. Small shop and bar on site as well as a reception desk with helpful staff. Rooms were like any other halls, well kitted out and nice kitchens. Although it is a 20 minute walk from uni, it is worth it for the social aspect!

Good location and facilities provided. Useful that there was a shop/bar onsite. Rooms were a good size

I think Sheffield Halls are exceptionally good. The facilities are all new, the layout of the rooms and the communal areas are social and easy to keep clean. The edge provides a space with a pub with social games on every night. There is also exercise classes that are on free every day. The edge also has a restaurant. Endcliffe itself is a beautiful location with stunning greenery and rolling hills. The only down side is that is far from the university.

Overall this was a nice place to live in my first year. Rooms had plenty of space, although we had single beds, they really felt bigger! I had never had an issue with the WiFi which was great because I could literally be connected to it all around the place, even outside. My kitchen was also huge. Everything was modern. The only down was the distance, it felt quite far to uni and no shops nearby.

Good social life, not too far from morrisons and it doesn’t get too rowdy but the walk to the diamond is so long, easy bus to get there but still just long.

I was in a shared bathroom accommodation and it was so social. The design of the building allowed for such a good social experience. The facilities were good even though we were in one of the older buildings and the facilities managers were very quick to respond to problems. I really liked the whole of endcliffe village and thought that the Edge Bar was an excellent place to go in the evenings for a drink and the quizzes they put on were fantastic. I really liked the landscape of Endcliffe as it was very green and this made it so good in the summer when everyone could sit outside sunbathing whilst doing work. Also there was a very big green area where we would play rounders during the summer and have BBQs.

Ravenstones is a bit dead tbh. Room is good, lots of storage. Kitchen is a decent size. Ranmoor is further from uni than endcliffe which is annoying.

Ranmoor is certainly inferior to Endcliffe with the lack of any facility like the Edge building as our equivalent never has anything running and the bar is always closed. The kitchen is very spacious and no complaints with cupboard spaces or worktop space. The rooms are well designed and although a personal preference of a 3/4 bed would be nice, there are not many downsides to the rooms themself.

Endcliffe is the perfect student accommodation for any first year students. Made up of severally different blocks you are gauranteed to make plenty of new friends and most new friends you do me will likely live there too. There’s always something going on and the centre “the Edge” has its own bar and common room

The social side is brilliant, as there are so many students staying in Endcliffe. Plus, it never gets too noisy if you want some quiet.

Nice environment, great place to meet new people. Sociable set up with common areas. Good maintenance.

The location is about a 20 minute walk from the edge of campus, with an extra 10 minutes to the far side. 5/10 minute walk to the nearest shops in Broomhill but with some brilliant late night takeaways.

Really love the residence atmosphere, lots of open spaces and recreational activities. The Edge bar and it's game Nights and pub quizzes are an attraction for all. Overalls really love Crewe Flats, near to University too.
