good halls but a far walk from campus
Super quiet hall just off campus
Northcourt bar needs a complete re-do vending machines don't work, broken pool cues, never was able to play online on my ps4 all year, can't fault the location or cleaners though
Yeah pretty good Hall quite old but it did the job
Not the best halls. Very antisocial and quite far from campus.
SILVERFISH IS A MASSIVE ISSUE HERE!! The uni needs to try and sort it out because it is horrendous. Other then that and the shabby looking bathroom, it’s a lovely place to spend a year. Highly recommend but also the uni needs to sort out this infestation.
it's number 8 for a reason. always experiencing issues with heating, cracks on the ceiling in the toilet, furniture in the room is old. wifi signal is poor. suggest you choose another hall.
If you want to study in your room, this hall is by far the best pick. It's quiet and near the cafe and all the little shops near campus. The room and kitchen are nice and spacious, just like in the photos provided on the uni website. The JCR and northcourt reception's great. The party crowd is a bit of a walk, but still close if you're drunk enough haha.
Great social experience however rather expensive for what you're getting.
I enjoyed staying in Sherfield in my first year - it's probably the furthest away from campus but I cycled so It wasn't that bad - Also the socail experience is what you make of it - I had an absolutely buzzing time in Sherfield!
Good pretty location a good distance from the uni - nice to be a little bit separated from the campus. No communal relaxing area for your flat - just a kitchen.
Great halls. They are not full of mature students and they have some international students. Honestly though, who cares because if you're sociable does it really matter if they are English or German? Just have a good time and get messy as possible in freshers!
Lot of silverfishes and a humourless warden.
Windy roads leading to campus make a journey to the library around 15-18 depending on where your block is. No complaints about the rooms or bathrooms, only the kitchen is usually too small for gatherings or predrinks.
Great space but bad wifi and a long walk to agriculture.
the worst hall I ever stayed... Dont even think to stay here... You will regret
The location of sheffield Hall is not the best as it is not directly on campus, but the social life is very good because it is relatively small and everyone know each other. The bar for north court is not very good as it is almost always empty and no one really uses it.
I absolutely love it. The different blocks on the Crescent makes it feel like a little family. Do go and meet your neighbours, they're probably lovely! The kitchens are all new as of 2015 in the Crescent, which is SO nice, it's kind of small but I've never found that an issue. The rooms are actually a really decent size, bigger than I expected, you're certainly not living in a cupboard, that's for sure! It may be a little far outside of campus but that counts as my exercise for the day, walking back and forth from Whiteknights (or London Road for that matter)! Honestly, if you choose Sherfield, you shouldn't be too disappointed!
Great halls to live in! Don't be afraid that its not on campus, you'll still experience freshers like everyone else and when it gets to exam time, Sherfield is quiet enough to revise well in unlike mackinder/stenton. Met a great bunch of people (all first years); G block rules!!!!
A very social Hall group, in particular the Crescent. Kitchens have been newly renovated and the bedrooms are a decent size.
The rooms are adequate but I dont feel I'm getting good value for money
It's nice and secluded plus there is a bar about twenty seconds away
I'm very satisfied about everything except for the bathroom/ shower room. I think they really should update them.
Hot water occasionally doesn't work and we get told off for quite a lot eg xmas decorations but the cleaner is lovely, the place is social and I wouldn't have it any other way.
It's alright. Not horrible, but it could be a little better. Good if you're on a budget and you don't mind walking to get to anything.
Great halls, been around since '94 and is very obviously old... However nice set up - each block feels like it's own house.
Had some of the best times of my life at Sherfield, the community feel on the crescent is the best thing about it - exactly what I expected first year of uni to be like!
I am enjoying my time at Sherfield and feel sad that I will be moving out a few weeks time. Located about fifteen minutes from central Whiteknights, it is quiet compared to Park Group Halls and has a real sense of community. You are able to complete work without the disturbance of noise and drunk teenagers. Shops and amenities are located about five minutes away and overall it is just a pleasant Hall to live in.
People are great, building is a poor standard with silverfish infestaton and heating issues
UPP don't fix anything and the bathroom, kitchen and heating always have damages
The hall photos online were of a renovated hall. Only some of the blocks had been renovated. Unfortunately I am in an old block, and still pay the same price. I feel that the price should have been dropped for those of us living in the un-renovated hall. We have also had numerous issues with heating and water. However, the hall's management were excellent at dealing with this.
