    This is so weird! I saw someone else saying they applied for Opal two and got put in Ranmoor. I don't get it though, I put down Endcliffe and they've put me in Opal two when I favoured location over an ensuite and self catering on the application, so I thought they'd be more inclined to put me in Ranmoor!

    I was in Ramshaw in 2010/11 and the it's 'usually empty' thing is complete nonsense, the University fills every single room in all the accommodation every year. Yes, Ranmoor is quieter than Endcliffe but simply because there is less people, not because Endcliffe is a non-stop 24/7 party. I don't feel like I missed out on anything by being in Ranmoor, if you make friends with everyone then you'll still get invited to parties/pre-drinks in Endcliffe. It is literally a 2/3 minute walk to Endcliffe so you're hardly on the other side of Sheffield. Besides, you'll be glad Ranmoor is on the quieter side when exams roll around.

    As for Ramshaw specifically. Most of them are 7 rooms, single-sex, at least the year I was there. I was in A2 for reference.

    I ticked accommodation type over location but I have spoken to a lot of other people who preferred location and got something else. I rang up a while back and they told me that Endcliffe village was so popular this year it could be filled 4x over! But I think Ranmoor will be a pretty good place to live since everyone there seem to be Endcliffe rejects!
