Everything you need is on site - there is a shop, a bar and so many students to keep you entertained! I felt extremely safe there and I miss it so much! I stayed in Endcliffe which was so nice - most flats had an ensuite which was great and the bedrooms were all lovely! The site was extremely well kept and I don't know anyone who didn't enjoy it there! Only downside is that it is about a 20 min walk to uni, which didn't seem like much at the time but after living 10 mins away now I wouldn't want to live as far again! But the closer campus did not appeal to me so am definitely happy with my decision, even with the walk!

Fantastic accommodation only downside is the walk to uni being a little longer that nessesery and the proper shops are quite far but the shop onsite is great and most of the time had all you needed.

The edge bar is a great meet up point, there's always a social event somewhere in the student village but it does get kinda noisy of the night which is bad if you want an early one. Also, it's kinda far away from campus.

Clean and practical facilities, my room had an en suite and was all I needed it to be, good location and good for being social

Good size room with en suite and single bed. More double bed rooms being available would have been nice. Kitchen/communal area is big enough however sofas are tatty, kitchen appliances are usable most of the time, cupboard space/fridge space is doable.

Great location for students, a 25 minute walk from uni so not the shortest, but social experience makes up for it. Rooms are to a good standard, some of the best showers you can get, plenty of storage (once you realise there’s room under the beds). Biggest flaw is the communal space - we’re in a flat of 10 and have the same amount of space as flats of 6. The best place to be in first year by far

Really far away from the university and city centre - over a mile from the SU. Good social experience and ok room, bad colour scheme.

The halls are modern and in a great location. I was really close to 'The Edge' - a bar, restaurant and social / exercise space which was perfect. They were cleaned fortnightly and all my friends from other uni's that came to stay said they were much better than theirs!

The accommodation is ok, but it it far away from the university and from the city centre. It is a little bit expensive.

It’s too far from the uni, too much fire alarms, two bathrooms are little for ten people, the rent is a little expensive for this accommodation.

A fair way out from the uni but very good social life as most students live nearby. The Edge is a fantastic facility for drinks or food. The flat itself could have been nicer decorated (anything but orange and brown!!) and the paint on the walls was chipped on arrival, otherwise the maintenance team have been very good at addressing any issues we have. The rooms are a very good size with a nice big desk and even room for my keyboard! Overall a very nice halls experience, but expensive even considering (£133 a week is a lot even for an ensuite).

The location is far away from the main site of Uni, but is where nearly all first eats are which is great! The cleaning facilities are rubbish nd a massive rip off (circuit laundry). My block (windgather) was very nice with lots of kitchen space and very nice room.

The halls are a bit far from the University buildings but in a pretty location with lots of activities arranged for residents.

The location of Endcliffe has its pros and cons: it is a bit of a walk away from the city centre, especially the Moor. Although, because of the public transportation, it is relatively easy to get there, too. I personally enjoyed having to walk a bit to go to lectures. Moreover, as Endcliffe is further away from West Street and the Students' union, it is quite there. When the weather was warm, people seemed to appreciate the green area in Endcliffe, as it would be relatively full of students! Other great things about Endcliffe were the village store, a small grocery shop with every day essentials, and the edge bar, where you could watch your football team play. Furthermore, despite the size of the rooms, they felt spacious and homely and never did I have a problem with fitting all my stuff into my room. Special thanks to the storage space under the bed!

I live in Howden block in Endcliffe. The halls are fantastic. So warm you can wake up in a sweat, the security is also top notch, its manned 24 hours and you always feel safe. There is also the Edge Bar/building with pool tables screens and drink/food available. Endlciffe is its own little campus with nearly 5000 students, if you’re a social butterfly, you’ll be in your element! The only downsides are that the sofas in the living room are not the most comfortable and noise can sometimes be an issue - however thats the case for anywhere you live. When you move out and have to pay for heating, these things become absolutely arbitrary. Endlciffe was amazing and 4 years later, I still miss it.

The location is quite a long walk from uni - about 30 minutes, 20 if you run. It has good facilities at The Edge, a bar, cafe, shop, rooms to hire etc. I was in Endcliffe which was very social and I would recommend. Some of the issues with the flat took a while to fix - such as a broken oven and a leaking window.

Expensive for what you get, however it is nice and there are good services on site with shops just a short walk away. The room was good and the bar 'the edge' was fairly cheap and an excellent social location with good food.

Location was handy, socially great as everyone interacted and easy to meet other flats. Room was good as the desk was big and ensuite was a comfort however definitely should have had a double bed for the money ! A shop in ranmoor would make such a difference. Cheaper prices at the ridge also and a gym on site?? On site gym would be used loads

I was in Stephenson hall whichever was out of the way of the main area of Endcliffe and was the most run down. So my room was rather shabby, but Endcliffe as a whole was a great area which was a 20 minute walk away from main campus. It was hard for us to socialise in Stephenson hall as we had no social area and a tiny kitchen due to us being catered. I felt like I slightly missed out on the first year experience in comparison to the other buildings in Endcliffe.

Endcliffe is located within a student village approximately 25 minutes away from the university. It is a fair walk to the campus and further yet to the city centre, but the seclusion and quiet of the small village is blissful. The green areas and amenities (The Edge Bar and Village Store) make the distance worthwhile. With flats of up to 10 people, it's impossible to be alone and the social scene is always booming. With society meetings on site and residence life give it a go events always taking place, there is always something to do.

Ranmoor was modern, tidy and I loved my ensuite. Social life was lively too with the ridge and all the other students knocking about it was never boring!

Great location and amazing setting though the colour painted on the walls is the most sickly colour green and the soundproofing isn’t great

It is nice to be in the same area as all the other first years and the standard of the accommodation is excellent. It is about 20 minutes walk from the university, so well placed. There is a nice community within the villages.
