Vibes of Encliffe Ranmoor specific blocks?

Hi, im looking at sheffield for 2024 start, and im someone who really likes to be prepared, and ive been looking at accom.

now ik the stuff about Encliffe-is-more-social and stuff, but i was wondering about details for specific blocks? Like ik i think froggart? and derwent? are renowned for being very noisy, but not much about any others in the ranmoor encliffe complex.

basically, which ranmoor blocks are most vibrant, and which encliffe blocks the quietist? and what would anyone suggest for someone who is pretty quiet and nerdy (why id pick ranmoor) but wants to be able to be friends and/or flatmates with people who are more social (adopted by an extrovert vibe) to bring me out of my shell and make help me make (something i struggle with on my own) (why id pick encliffe) because otherwise i worry im gonna end up feeling isolated and lonely.

btw im just looking at en-suite self-catered

Hiya! I'm also planning on going to Uni of Sheffield 2024. Where are you doing your research? I've been trying to better look into the accommodations but can only find surface level stuff, nothing on what the individual blocks are like.

Hey,
It is great that you are being organised about it, I was the same when I was applying too.
To be honest, the vibes of each block changes each year with each group of students. Usually its more based on who is in your flat or on your floor that will determine how loud it is and how many flat parties and pre's happen. I chose to be Howden, because I wanted to be around social people who would encourage me to go out and try new things. My flat were sociable, but not too loud and there was a good mixture of quieter and more sociable people (I was in a flat of 7). I think this tends to be the case in most flats (city accommodation tends to have more quieter students) but wherever you end up there will probably be a mix of different types of people.
I would not stress too much about where to go, just pick somewhere that you like the look of and there will always be people in the nearby flats if those in your flats are less sociable and you'll probably all get to know each other anyway. I would say to just pick somewhere in Endcliffe, but maybe slightly further back from the edge so you dont get the noise of people walking past at night. Also you can always move to another flat if you do not get on with the people you live with. There are also loads of societies to get involved with and you can socialise and meet people through lots of other routes too.
I hope this answers you question.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

oh, what are you looking to study? im going for history personally. as for finding stuff about blocks, i heard from our tour guide on the open day last summer when i went round her (idk which one, but like opposite the encliffe shop and common area) that like howe and like derwent are quite loud. since then, here really, on the student room. basically over the summer ive been looking at all the posts from incoming students booking accom on the sheffield page (or just searching encliffe or ranmoor) to try to gage the vibes

Hiii I was in Endcliffe last year, Derwent was perfect for me. Brilliant location, right next to the village shop and the edge laundrette. That is definitely something to consider otherwise you’re carrying your laundry for ages. It does have the reputation of being loud but it wasn’t. It was only loud on going out nights like Wednesdays, but then everyone leaves at 10pm ish so you can get to sleep completely fine. But if noise is a dealbreaker for you, definitely pick a block that’s further from the edge. But, do consider carrying your laundry/ going to the shop!!
