Sheffield Uni 2024 prospective students

I was wondering if anyone going to Sheffield this year would like to text or email or something like that. I’m super excited but also terrified because I don’t know a single person going there and it’s very far from the unis my friends are going to. I think it’d be nice to at least know one person before we get there

I'm studying that too!

No way?? that’s so cool! everyone I’ve asked about it had no idea what it was. We’ll probably be in the same classes then if we both get in (: Have you chosen Sheffield as your firm choice?

yeah, I love it there, plus the diamond?! it’s amazing. I’m trying to decide which accommodation to choose. I know I want to live in Endcliffe but apart from that I haven’t decided. Plus the writing a profile for it is stressing me out. Have you booked yours?

I love the diamond as well. That was one of the main reasons why I chose Sheffield! I've not booked yet cause I don't really like the ones available rn. I'm hoping to book by the end of this week tho! I've been looking at other people profiles to get a feel of what other people have been writing.

It’s one of my main reasons too, the facilities are great and it has the iForge; the idea of being able to go create whatever I want to whenever seems so fun. Do more accom blocks become available closer to the time in Endcliffe? tbh I can’t figure out how to book a non ground floor room so I thought they filled up from the ground up and was waiting to get a higher room. Ooh I should look at some other peoples profiles that’s a good idea. Do you know anyone going to Sheffield uni too?

I believe there's new blocks every week but I may be wrong. I've seen blocks on the 5th floor when I looked today, maybe it's only showing you lower rooms cause of your answers to the questions from earlier (the quieter accom, LGBTQ+ rooms and single sex rooms questions)? I only know 1 person going to Sheffield and we plan to be in the same block

ohh I'll have to check again but maybe it is my question answers, or maybe I'm just being dumb and can't figure out how to select other floors lol. awh that's a nice idea to be in the same block

Hi,
I am in my third year studying at the University of Sheffield.
Do you have any questions about the university or city?
I can be really scary moving to a new place where you don't know anyone but try to remember nearly everyone is in the same position and will be very willing to make friends. There will also be lots of events and activities going on so you can meet lots of people.

Hi i’m hoping to come to Sheffield as well to study Geography but i’m struggling with accommodation as well they are definitely releasing like rooms in blocks gradually as I checked back today and a few new blocks had been added to my list so just keep checking back if you are looking for a certain floor or block. My insta @livcottrill if anyone wants to chat :smile:
