    Hi everyone

    I just applied for student accommodation at Sheffield University for this September. I am a mature student (20 years old)

    I applied for St George En-Suite because it looked really beautiful..
    However I've been doing some research and feel like it's a bit isolated compared to the other accommodation available as there are only 28 residents there.

    I'm so naive about all of this and wondered if anyone knows much about St George and if it's worth applying some where else?

    How did you apply specifically for St Georges? I really like it and want to specify it as my preference
    Thanks

    I'm at the University of Sheffield at the moment. The St.George's accommodation is in the top of a church. The church itself is a lecture theater that is occasionally used however it is in a good location being close to the city center; literally 5 minutes walk from everything you'd ever need. The main accommodation in Endcliffe/Ranmoor is a good 30 minute walk up the road but obviously has the big student atmosphere, whereas St.George's does not.

    I've applied for St Georges and have just been allocated flat 2 room 4,

    I'm 21 and will be in third year of a psychology undergrad next year

    St George's is really close to uni and town so will be convenient for attending socials and nights out but the block itself won't be hugely sociable/noisy which is what I'm after!

    Anyone in flat two or have any questions in case you're new to Sheffield?

    Looking forwards to meeting you all!

    http://returners.group.shef.ac.uk/stgeorges-flats

    then click apply, is how I dd it

    Though I thnk that route is only for returners (ie current studients who aren't in first year). I'd say your best bet would be to email

    Hi there! http://360degreevirtualtours.group.s...aduate/ensuite I did. I applied from the link and just specifically selected St George when applying online for accommodation. Sorry I've only saw this today. Good luck

    Hi there.

    Thank you so much for this! I did think that, I might have to think it over.

    Hello!

    Thank you so much for this! Wow, that's exciting!

    I haven't been allocated a room just yet but I don't think I will until June/July.

    Have you lived there for three years?

    Thank you!

    Hi all! I was wondering whether someone had photos of the rooms? Because on the 360° tour only one room is shown and I would like to see more since I'm planning on applying for the flats. Thanks in advance!
