Hi all, so this is a shared account by myself, a first year University of Sheffield student (studying English Language & Linguistics) and three (maybe four, hence the need for a housemate as you will see if you read on) first-year-students-to-be at Sheffield Hallam University studying Games Design.
Now, three of the four people who are going into their first year at Hallam have got their grades for uni, however the fourth guy's grades have yet to be received, so his being able to pay rent isn't guaranteed for us yet; and we need a minimum of five people at the house we've recently signed for and for which we've paid our deposits. Thus, we need an extra person who will become our fifth housemate if he doesn't get in, or our elusive sixth if he actually gets into uni.
The house is a 6 bedroom place in Sharrow, with a decent kitchen and bathroom - one of the rooms is an en-suite cellar room (we've yet to decide who gets which room). We've opted for an all-bills inclusive rent at £94 per week per person, and are planning to upgrade our internet (which will be £1 extra per person per week) via Unihomes. The contract starts on September 1st, and lasts until June 30th.
It's a straightforward and not overly-long walk to the University of Sheffield (to Jessop West/the IC in any case), and because it's just off Ecclesall road buses are an option for Sheffield Hallam students who are interested in living here too.
We're a pretty nice bunch I suppose, we all play video games and come from Bradford. Overall we are pretty quiet and keep to ourselves, no one really smokes or does drugs. There's one girl in the group (that being me), and the SHU students are all boys.
Please send us a private message if you're interested, thanks!
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
