Stephenson Hall, F block. Really social, with 16 people living in one block. Although there is no communal space, we all spent a lot of time in each other's rooms and all went to dinner together every night for the whole year. The rooms are pretty big, bigger than South Wing, and although the food isn't the best there's quite a lot of variety.

Endcliffe is a fair distance (half hour walk) from the main university areas, and Ranmoor is even further. However, once you get there, the actual Endcliffe village is pretty nice: there's lots of outdoor green space so it feels a bit like a park - members of the public walk their dogs through it which is pretty cute. There is an onsite bar that feels like a bad Spoons but is alright for a drink or two/the start of a bar crawl/watching sports. There is also an onsite shop but it's fairly expensive, so best saved for those snack related emergencies. My room is in Endcliffe Vale flats, which is self catered shared bathroom accommodation. It's bigger than I expected and has a decent size desk, a wardrobe, and a sink. The actual shared bathrooms aren't too bad either, although the kitchen could be improved by a bit more fridge space. We have all inclusive bills which is pretty sweet too.

Staying in Endcliffe village was nice, for its separation from the university campus and its proximity to local amenities such as the Broomhill shops. The Edge was a nice option to have for food or even to go to the pub quizzes/exercise classes put on there. The rooms were of a decent size with a lot of storage. Maintenance issues were dealt with quickly. However, I do think rent prices could have been slightly lower for what you pay for.

I got really lucky in the endcliffe crescent houses, lovely sized room in a house of 12. 5 bathrooms and a nice kitchen space. Only thing which lets it down is that there is no living area.

Enjoyed living in student halls, was really good living in a student village as all your friends are close by. Location was fairly far from uni but there was shops and pubs in the village and close by, security and reception was 24/7 and always helpful

Halls are a great place to live, I’ve loved making friends and building ge community with other students mostly all in first year, it’s been a lovely experience. Endcliffe is about 20/25 mins walk from uni which is a good distance, I like the walk each day. Facilities are great, the Edge is a great centre to the village with cafe, shop, bar and handy laundrette and cash machines. There’s always lots of events going on in the bar and activities to try out. My room is perfect size, good storage space with a nice ensuite, the only complaint I have is that rent is quite expensive, £130 a week.

Loved my flat mates, location was far, room were good quality but some things did break. Security was good and it was nice having a bar on campus.

Close to shops and only a 30 minute slow walk to Uni. Bus stop on the toad right outside which takes you into town. Lots of options for same sex/catered/en-suite accommodation.

The accommodation has such a community feel and is in a really nice location. The facilities are decent however the flats could be updated slightly.

The social experience is fantastic as it is a student village and nearly all of them are freshers. The facilities are great, there is the Edge in Endcliffe that serves as a common room with a bar and pool tables. The room is nice however the ensuite could be bigger and better, it is currently a wet room. The desk is big which is good but the mattress is a little bit uncomfortable.

Room size and storage are good, modern and stylish. Location is a bit further out from the city centre, but there are options for city halls. Accommodation services disappointing.

Rooms are quite big and well mantained. Only 30 min walk to uni and very pretty campus. The edge is a good place to meet friends.

Room is a good size. Kitchen is a bit small, but there is plenty of cupboard space. Alas there are no sofas in crescent flats 😥

We were lucky to be put in a smaller flat, with large living space. Rooms were also reasonable size with good storage, and the obvious benefit of en-suite showers. Location to uni is a little bit far out, but proximity to shops (and the peaks!) was brilliant.

Staying in Ranmoor has been, on the whole, a very pleasant experience. The flats are aesthetically pleasing both inside and out. My bedroom is spacious with more than enough storage. The majority of rooms are ensuite and come equipped with plenty of plug sockets. Moving-in was made easy by student helpers and plenty of information was given to us beforehand. The social life is great because of all the free events put on by Residence Life. Living here is safe, comfortable and sociable.

I lived in an en-suite flat with 9 other students, we were located right in the centre of Endcliffe so had great access to the bar, small shop and reception. The flat was a great size and we often hung out in the living area until the early morning, it was great to have that communal space but also to have our own -good sized- rooms to hide in when needed! Maintainence normally responded in good time and we didn't have too many issues. Great access to taxis for nights out or buses when needing to get to the station. A 25 minute walk from the main part of uni made it feel like you were living in a city community as well as a student community - that was great! The only downside for me (engineering students have a lot of 9ams!) was how loud it could get as you tried to sleep but investing in a good pair of ear plugs if you'll be in this situation should sort that! All in all I would highly recommend

Crescent Flats, Decent room size that are quite spacious, very small and dated communal space, however brilliant social life, and very run people.

Alright location, walk to uni . Washing machines always full, and don't really work well , student be not open, great to meet flat mates and make good friend

Great accommodation in a fantastic location. Not too far from the university (about 20min walk) but instead in a quiet student village type setting with a rural feel, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Great rooms with all the basics one needs. Fantastic environment for socialising as everyone around you is in the same boat.

Crewe Hall- best standard accommodation in the uni, good facilities and really nice gardens. Loads of single sex flats but was still a lot of fun

I thought the halls (in Sheffield in general) were a bit pricey and I paid around £120 a week for an en-suite room in Ranmoor Windgather in a flat of 10 (5 guys and 5 girls). Despite everyone seeing Ranmoor as the quiet and boring village, I massively enjoyed my stay and owe it to the fact I got on so well with my flatmates. We got what we paid for here - the place had security on site, a receptionist at the hub (Ranmoor Ridge) most hours, our problems with the flat were quickly fixed (

Great halls- everybody around, Edge convenient. Long walk to university buildings and lectures though- around 40 minutes.

I lived in Crewe Hall in Endcliffe which is an older building separate from the main halls of residence. I had an older building and opted for the cheapest accomodation, and shared with 9 other mixed-sex flat mates and shared 3 bathrooms between 10 of us. Socially this was not a great place to live, because our flat was more like a terraced house with its own front door rather than sharing a floor or hall with other flats, so we didn't mingle with other Crewe students. However we had a large grassy courtyard and tennis courts, and we often had BBQs in the summer which most of Endcliffe couldn't do. The flat was really warm (sometimes too warm in summer) and the showers were good. It was located slightly closer to uni than the other halls too. Because the building was older, we had sinks in every room which made up for the fact we didn't have en suites, and the rooms were almost 3 times the size of the newer builds in Endcliffe. The wifi was superfast and there was a small library next door that not many people knew about so we didn't have to trek into uni to get a space in the main libraries. The living space was quite poor with just a table that took up most of the room and no sofas/TV. Although most halls are overpriced, I think Crewe was good value for money in comparison to the newer part of Endcliffe, although I would have paid more for a better social experience.

Great halls, met wonderful people. It's a little far from University compared to other accommodation but it's not too much trouble.
