    Who's made Sheffield Hallam their firm choice this year?

    If you have then what accommodation have you or will you apply for?

    I've already applied and chose central quay as my first and the forge as my second

    I'm currently on a gap year and will be studying Geography at Sheffield Hallam in September. Unsure on what accommodation to apply for though thinking about Victoria Halls - I find the website very unhelpful though!

    Ah I'm also on a gap year! Yeah they use some of the same pictures for each accom. I went to see Victoria halls and it's really nice and village-like.. But it's really popular and right in the city centre. You get two options anyway! If you don't mind a walk to the uni then the ones I've applied for are really nice and a little cheaper too

    I've firmed Sheffield Hallam and I've put central quay as my first choice and my second was another that began with a T, can't remember and I'm too lazy to look 😂 I'm quite worried though because it's a conditional offer of 300 ucas points (which I'll Deffo get), but does that mean I'm less likely to get my first choice because it's a conditional?? Blughhhh

    Trigon or something wasn't it? Haha yeah no worries! I have no clue either because mines a conditional too where I need to get 280 points. It says after you've applied that they allocate accom to people with unconditionals from mid July-mid August I think and then people with conditionals from mid August to mid September! So I guess it depends on how many unconditionals are given out? But we'll see I guess

    Does anyone know if accommodation is already open for September 2015 start?
    I am attending a selection day in February at SHU and have got to wait go hear back for a decision after the selection day to be able to (if successful) set SHU as my firm and choose accommodation, which might not be until March.
    I am worrying this late decision might mean i'll struggle to find accommodation. Anyone got any advice?
    Thank you!

    Hi I heard the anvil is well suited for mature students but I'm not certain! When you go you can ask them because from what I heard there are plenty of people in your position and the uni students will have the best advice!

    Anyone going to be at the Collegiate campus?
    If so, what accommodation are you looking at, as it's further away from a lot of the City accommodation.

    I was thinking of applying at The Forge cause it's pretty close to the campus, I didn't think of applying at one a bit further, might have a look!

    Made Sheffield Hallam my firm after receiving an unconditional to do accounting and finance.

    Went to look around a few days ago and I love the city, thinks it's had quite a bit of money invested into the city centre in recent years.

    Applied to Victoria halls as my first choice and Opal One as my second. Definitely the best accommodation out of the 5 universities I went to look around!
