    I have Sheffield as my insurance so won't be able to apply for accommodation until after results day. Will there be any en suite rooms at endcliffe left by the time I apply?
    I doubt it- you will probably get offered Stephenson halls or city accommodation, however don't fret. Step Henson hall is catered and whilst you have to share 2 bathrooms, it isn't usually a problem and for the price of the en suite room you get catered meals to which gives your card 49 quid a week. Whiles iris the enough to have breakfast lunch and dinner each day you can deffo pig out now and again especially if you build up some credit haha. It's the liveliest halls and you will have a good time if you end up there. Proper community spirit and just a short walk away from the main endcliffe accommodation and the edge bar and village store. When you need to walk to uni you get a bit of a head start too

    What apartment / flat are you in? I'm returning to accommodation this year
    (Original post by _Morsey_)
    Hi there,

    I'm not a postgrad but i may be able to help or answer any questions with regards to Ranmoor, as i am currently a 2nd year student staying within the 'returners' accommodation which they have, within a flat of fellow returners which are a mix of 2nd / 3rd year students. In fact i've already received my reservation for next year, where i'll moving from the delights of my current room, to the room next to me.

    I think it's fair to say that the Ranmoor lifestyle is certainly quieter than Endcliffe, which is definitely something that i appreciate having had a near-horrendous first year within Stephenson Hall (catered Endcliffe). The Ridge is nearby with the launderette, and the residential mentors always have something planned up their sleeves if you're somebody who would get involved with those type of things.

    I suppose the biggest disadvantage for Ranmoor is the distance it is from campus depending on which department you're studying at, therefore it's not uncommon for people to use the buses.

    It all depends on what you're looking for though as a postgrad, but i'd certainly say that Ranmoor is pretty postgrad friendly, and even more so if your offer is within one of the returner flats where you'll likely be among similarly minded people who are in their later years.

    I'll be in Ravenstones D block also (not D3 though).

    I am curious however to see whether they will have single-sex flats this year. Last year i was in a male-only flat and i'm pretty convinced that that was an equivalent female-only flat in the block too.
