Is it true you can only get catered halls at £110 a week? My sister wants to go to Sheffeild but simply cannot afford it at them prices. I just can't help thinking this can't be true.

Look here for all the different hall fees: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/housing/h.../hallfees.html

By my calculations - the cheapest single study room in the cheapest hall with no phone on a 30 week contract worked out at....£89.90 per week! Shared and shared study rooms are cheaper - dunno if your sis wants that or not though.

Check it out for yourself though. All those fees are for the halls with food : - http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/housing/halls/info.html

Sheffield or Hallam?
I'm sure I dont pay that much I'm in self catered halls and I'm sure I'm in the more expensive ones.
You can live out for as little as 35 quid a week. Let me consult my accommodation book and I will get back to you.

ok the rate it gives for mine is £2048.20 except thats for 2002/2003 I think I pay slightly more now and bills are included heating etc.I think I pay about £2400 but I'm not 100% sure. Thats catered in Broad Lane Court which is quite nice except for it being in the redlight district bit. its not too bad though.
Its £100 compulsary extra for internet connection whether you use it or not and you get a phone in your bedroom too for which you have a phonecard that you can put credit on
I dont have to move ot in the holidays so it must be a 38 week contract.
There are 6 rooms in a flat one is ensuite so you are sharing 2 showers and 2 loos between 5 people and have a sink in your room. i make it somewhere between 65 and 70 quid a week self catered. The kitchens have oven microwave but you have to provide your own kettles and toasters it might be worth bringing a kettle and then waiting to see whether someone else has a toaster or buying between you. I spend less than 10 quid a week on food.

Hope thats helpful.

Yeah thanks it was, she wants to Shefield, she has suggested Harlem but she hasn't even put that on her UCAS forms, and considering she has offers from York, Warick, Shefield, Manchester etc it would be daft to just to go there for the cheap accodomation. I think the problem is my sister is too damn fusy and seems to want her own toilet. She seems to think a lot of universities have a toilet in your own bedroom (en suite) but just share the kitchen etc.

Its an extra £400 a yer to have ensuite in my hall. I dont think its worth it the loos get cleaned once a week here and you never have to queue.

if you're going to sheffield, you're in for a treat! its such a great city.i live here and love it, will defianately return after my degree. not going to uni here though cos i feel i need to try somewhere else. but to go to sheffield afresh- you'll love it! decent shops, excellent bars and night clubs, and a generally good city to be in. u can be in the busy city centre one minute then go out to the country for a fantastic pub lunch, then back into town that night to get hammered at a number of great bars. its easy to get around, and got a really great buzz about it! plus the uni has a great reputation! if u want any recomendations of the best places (and cheapest seeing as we're soon to be students!) then just let me know??
hope u like it as much as i do!

I also live in Sheff and it's a wicked city. Like you, I want to go away for uni but I would certainly consider coming back after. It's one of the friendliest places I've been. Even though it's a big city everyone's really friendly. And nowhere else (probably) do you get bus drivers calling lads 'love' or 'duck'. God bless Yorkshire

Law at Manchester. I want to stay in a big city - I'm definitely a city boy. Manchester is a great uni- very highly regarded (8th for Law according to the Guardian) and I love how all the unis are grouped around one main road - loads of busses.
