Honestly you will be wishing you lived anywhere else than here. Nice rooms but weird people - great if you're antisocial or just a little odd. Upsides are the cleaners being amazing but if you're looking for social side, apply to somewhere like oak or whitworth park; you will have a much more fulfilling time. From someone who wishes they applied to oak.

Q
Seen pictures of the bedrooms on the website, they look grim and old. Someone, please tell me they have been refurbished. Also, loads of people talking about the silverfish, why has no one kicked off and got it sorted

Sheavyn is lovely if you have a good flatmates, it’s in fallow without being mega loud. The cleaners are ***** and we got a few noise complaints but it never stopped anything. It has a common room but i never saw anyone use it generally the kitchen (which is the best out of the halls I’ve seen) and the bedrooms are the social spaces. But generally I would recommend if you can deal with t**** from others floors getting pissy about the smallest noise past 11.

The wifi is horrific it never works and is by far the worst thing about the halls and the uni. Also the staircase is always disguisting and covered in kebab and sick but that's the fault of the people who live in the halls and not the halls themselves.

The best part of Fallowfield Campus. As social as tower, as nice as Richmond, and the most scenic because of where it is. All round great.

The people are great, i was so surprised by how friendly everyone is and the large kitchen space allows everyone to mingle and chat! It's amazing! The rooms are as be as you need them to be and the ensuite does the job! Cleaning staff are the nicest people and if anything new goes wrong maintainance are always quick to respond! Wouldn't want to live anywhere else

lovely rooms and kitchens, lovely lawn which was nice on the one or two hot days and good to have access to ashburne library during exams. but boring as sin and ensuite luxury was not really worth the money. sheavyn is literally as much fun as a fire in an orphanage

Only a good location because there are so many halls nearby but have to get a bus everyday, cleaning is not really the best & the common room is freezing & hardly used this year. It's quite expensive & other unis get a lot more for the same amount.

Ended up spending most of my time in Owens Park. Common room never open. Silverfish in the bathroom. Last time I went out with my flat was October. No WiFi until the new year. However, bedroom is really good even though all 18 floors of the tower looks down at me and blocks out the sun.
