Featured review

Lovely, modern accommodation with plenty of facilities at a low cost. Staff are very helpful/friendly and everything is kept to a high standard of cleanliness - for student living, that is! Only drawbacks are the distance from Sheffield Hallam University (20 minute walk) can be a pain, especially being away from the student/clubbing nightlife. On the whole however, this halls is a good choice, especially if you like to keep yourself to yourself and study for a degree, rather than live for the student life like myself.

Really nice rooms and kitchen areas, there's six of us though so we got an extra fridge freezer. Everyone at reception is really nice, always security there to help. Maintenance smartphone app is really good as well. Location is a bit far out compared to others, but still only a 10 min walk to city centre and 15 min walk to hallam.

Flats are high quality and fantastic value for money but the location is out of the way. It's good but there are better halls for Hallam.

Value is great as all bills are included. It is located 20 min walk away from the town centre which is a fair distance compared to other halls. Didnt clean the flats at all here, that was down to you. The common room was quite small really, not much space

Good location but that's about it. The so called gym isn't worth anything, especially if you go to The gym on a regular basis this would be highly disappointing. The only thing you can do is cardio in there and even this leave a lot to wish for with no modern treadmills. Another thing, you have to pay to use washing machine, so yeah "all-bills included" is not so true... You will spend fortune on your washing... Internet is the worst thing on earth, I have to call the internet support team like every week to solve issues with connecting my laptop and my PlayStation, plus it is ridiculously slow once you connect. My 3G on my phone is faster than that "50mbps" wifi. So in the most important moments of your studies it can let you down, especially if you leave your assignment until the last minute. The showers are awful, keep blocking and the whole bathroom is made of cheap plastic so forget about design.. It feels like you're on a boat. Heaters are rubbish, had to buy an additional one.

The management at Lulworth Student Co are a joke. They don't care about the residents at all and are only interested in your money. When we were booking they tried to charge different people different deposits and when I moved out they simply sent the smallest amount back rather than the deposit paid. Our kitchen was filthy when we moved in. The fridge was full of food and the surfaces were covered in white mould. Supposedly it was cleaned once a week but the only time it ever got cleaned was when we did it ourselves. Not acceptable at all. Security is limited if non-existent. You could collect anyone's parcel if you knew their name! They made no effort to tell you when parcels arrived, one of my friends had flowers bought for them but by the time they realised they had died in the box in reception. There are better places nearby!

Although it is a bit of a trek from city campus, i believe it is a lot better quality than the one's closer. Lots of communal areas and facilities, and the wifi is very good

very far from uni and isn't very modern. But has a gym next to the common room area (£10 for the year!) so average overall.
