    I just received an email stating that there are no more spots left in University accommodation, so I guess that means I'll have to look at private houses and flats. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks in advance.

    Guys, there is still so much private accom. available in Sheffield. I swear I have gone past about 6 properties that are still up for rent down Witham road on the way into uni. You will get somewhere, you will find it is cheaper than being in halls.

    Have a look at Dove properties, Broomhill property shop, WestOne...

    I'm just really sorry you've not got a place in halls. It was bad enough trying to look at houses for this year, it would have been a million times worse had I had to do it last year. Do either of you three live particularly local? Either you three get with someone else and get a house, or you individually look for a room in a house.

    In the words of Douglas Adams, DON'T PANIC.

    I'm not local, but a few people in the group we've made are willing to check out a few properties we're interested in. Do you know anything about the private non-university halls? A few people seem to be interested in them, but location wise they're not very convenient. I've also heard rumours of there being a demonstration room which is much better than the others, meaning that those who go for those halls end up being disappointed.

    I'd appreciate any advice you have to give.

    I have a friend who is at Opal 2 & friends who have been there last year, I have a flatmate from last year currently in Aspect 3, and she LOVES it. Unite, i have no idea.

    Edit: by the looks of their website, you're going to end up with non-ensuite stuff.

    I know where sociology is. The nearest stuff would be uni halls, but you'd be able to get privately rented stuff which is closer.

    Hey, if anyone is still looking for accommodation I'm having to move out of my flat but need someone to replace it. Its a shared flat with one other person, but they are barley around. It has a very good sized room, double bed and easy access to uni. If anyone's interested message me for more info
