The washing machines and dryers never worked properly for my entire stay. We regularly emailed the landlords about this problem, but they refused to do anything about it. The tone were too small, I could barely fit all my things in. The place was also ridiculously hot, so it was only comfortable in the winter. On my birthday, I had some friends over for a party, which left a little bit of a mess which we cleaned up the next morning; in response I recieved a threatening phone call, a threatening email which included lies, and my girlfriend was banned from the accommodation for a first time offense. When I sent a polite email asking they reconsider the ban, they didn't even have the decency to respond. I felt unwelcome in the flat, and I was counting the days until I could leave.
The landlord has not been great. I've been woken up by "fire alarm tests" in the morning with no warning. We're sharing two washing machines between everyone in my accommodation and the one next door (approx 80 people) and they regularly break down. The walls are incredibly thin, I've had flat mates complain about me talking about them when they've heard it in the next room. Nobody official stays on site so there's no help on hand when something goes wrong. The windows are not properly sealed so even when the windows are fully "closed" it still let's in a breeze - they've tried to counter this in some rooms by covering it up with clue which has had little success. They've complained at my flat mates for doing recycling and refuse to provide us with any bins or storage for the recycling. The ovens regularly break down, yesterday it took me 3 hours to cook chicken in one of them it was so slow. The price is great but the management is horrendous and they care very little about our welfar
It is good place to live while studying. The prices are super reasonable and management staffs are extremely helpful. The location of uni is very close up, highly recommend for place to stay for any students. Would be amazing experience for first timer.
Walls are so thin you will hear EVERYTHING every room surrounding you does. Landlord/management are not helpful at all, help with the bare minimum and can be rude and very unprofessional, if something breaks, don't expect to get it fixed any time soon. Good location for city centre etc however I did not feel safe at all, very rough area and strange things happening in the flat, which obviously the management did the bare minimum to help. If you are lucky enough to have a good flat, I assume the social experience is a highlight as well. Rooms are decent sizes depending on which one you are put into, some very big but some very small with no range in price which I found odd.
Great cheap halls for a social experience in a brilliant location. The rooms are a decent size but some are smaller than others, you will also hear people in rooms next to you but this isn't too much of an issue. Overall they do the job for first year and are as good as other halls just no ensuite. Can feel crammed at times if all 10 students are in the kitchen at once but otherwise enough space and shared bathrooms aren't an issue at all. The only real communal space is the kitchen but this works really nicely and adds to the social feel with its sofa and TV making it easier to socialise than other halls. Looks tired and basic but works well. They have cleaners once a fortnight which is brilliant and laundry services on site. The management team are generally very good and sort issues quickly, just remember to pester if you want it done fast. Wi-Fi is temperamental at best but I believe they have completely redone their Wi-Fi now.
I spent two years at Egerton Halls, It was a great experience and if you like to socialise it’s perfect for making new friends and there’s a TV in every room, but at times it did feel claustrophobic with lots on one floor but it is very cheap and good value for money, although the WiFi wasn’t great I believe it’s been updated recently, the response from hall management was fairly decent and did get the job done, you also have cleaners every two weeks which is always a bonus. But overall it was great fun and a great place to start your student life with a fantastic location and lots of character
Although not as new as some of the other Sheffield Hallam accommodations the social life at Egerton is brilliant! The kitchens have plenty of room for everyone and their friends for nights out with sofas and TVs on every floor. Management respond if there are any problems with the facilities and the location is perfect for students at both campuses being half way between them.
You'll hear EVERYTHING your neighbours are doing, including above and below you, the wifi will either barely work or not work at all and if you're lucky enough to live on the ground floor you'll hear everyone leaving/entering/standing outside the building, but it's close to the centre of town. It's £98 a week for a reason.
I used to live in Egerton House during my first year at uni. The location is quite nice, you are 5 minutes and less away from the City Centre and West Street. Travelling to the uni is quite fast, too. The area is quiet and you don't get a lot of traffic right next to the dorms. The rooms are quite spacious and there are double beds inside, which are quite comfy. I would recommend this place to arriving students, who are looking forward to meeting lots of new friends.
Egerton is in a great location close to the city campus and it's easy to get along to ecclesall road to the collegiate campus. It's a great place to meet new friends and is also in a great location for student nights out! The rooms are a great size and there were good shower facilities on each of the landings. I really enjoyed my year at Egerton and would definitely recommend the halls
Had a great time in this hall last year. Big flat so met some great people and had a reght laugh. Rooms are great, bigger than some of my mates rooms in other halls. No ;shower room in rooms but had two shower rooms on our landing. Fab big kitchen which was used as our common room. 10 min walk to uni Wifi easy to connect to and speed was enough for us to have a frag night! Recommend this halls to anyone value for money defo
If you're looking to make 36 other friends then this place is for you, further, The cleaners come every two weeks and do a pretty decent job. However, if you're looking for fast wifi, top of the range kitchen items, facilities that are reliable and walls that block sound, it isn't the place for you.
