St George's Flats, University of SheffieldWatch this thread
It's fairly quiet; originally built as post grad accommodation and not usually offered to freshers, so making friends might be more difficult. The residents have a WhatsApp group and arrange social events themselves but it's not generally party central!
The accomodation is quirky; there are two sets of flats with 14 or 15 rooms and three kitchens in each.
I've only been in Flat 1, but it has stairs to the first level then two floors above. The rooms are off a long corridor with one kitchen on the first level and two on the second level serving the top two floors. The very top floor rooms only have a little window (the top of the arch) by the floor and a skylight.
The rooms are all en suite, but vary in size depending on where they are; it's a converted building so some rooms are an odd shape.
The kitchens are shared between 4 or 5 people and have a dining table & chairs but there's no other social space eg sofa's etc
There's a laundry room in the basement and a bike store.
WiFi is great as there's a lecture theatre in the church so you get Eduroam.
The building is looking slightly tatty; the stair carpets have had the same stains for 4 years!
The windows are single glazed but there are good curtains so it's not cold.
There are no dedicated porters so it can be a pain to get deliveries; drivers can't always find the entrance and they don't give you time to get to the door before they disappear!
My son lived there for 3 years and has enjoyed it but he's had probably the largest room (flat 1 room 3) which had room for an extra desk and shelves.
