My daughters both stayed at leadmill point and they absolutely loved their time there. The staff were very friendly and it really felt like home for them. They were always there if any issues arised and the location allowed them to walk almost everywhere. They made a lot of friends whilst living there which really improved their overall university experience. The blocks and communal areas were always very clean and well maintained. Their experience was so good that 3 of their friends are already booked for next year! To top it all off, it was very affordable.

I have really enjoyed my time living at Leadmill point. So close to the Uni. The staff are great - There is 24 hour security - who I have called upon once or twice, they arrive straight away and are always helpful . I looked at a few other places to live , but couldn't find anything that offered the same value for the cost.

I first came to live at Leadmill 2 years back, my idea was to just stay for my first year at Uni however the experience exceeded all my expectations and I decided to stay for my second year and now again for my last one! The building is located in a prime location, short walk to train station and city centre. The staff is just amazing, nothing is too much for them from reception team, always keen to help or just be there for a chat, to security (Oh god... how many times I had to call them because I forgot my key in my room! always coming on my rescue with a smile), housekeeping team, just fantastic ladies and the maintenance guys who are always there when we break something. Everybody is super friendly and have made these years so amazing and easy for me. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH :-)

I've lived at Leadmill Point for the last 2 years and I'm coming back for my final year in September. It's really close to uni and the rent is really good value. Some of my friends have gone to live in houses but they are further away and cost the same if not more. The staff are great and always helpful and the common room is getting done over the summer so that will be good when I get back.

I've had a great year at Leadmill Point! The staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you. They have 24 hours security so you always feel safe, plus if you lock yourself out they are there in no time to let you back in. There is no better location in Sheffield, I can be on a train back home in 5 minute but also at University in 5 minutes too. The value for money is great, some of my friends are paying £40 a week more than me and have to walk 30 minutes every morning. It's a shame I'm coming up to the end of University or else i'd love to stay next year.

My daughter stayed here last year and she loved it at Leadmill Point. The staff were always happy to help and were very supportive to my daughter when she was stressed about her exams. The location was brilliant as my daughter didn't have to pay out additional money for public transport to get to University. I would certainly recommend staying here, my daughter has just rebooked for her second year.

DO NOT STAY HERE. Mouse infestations literally IN MY ROOM, because of holes in the wall that we’re they when I moved in and they refused to fix even after many complaints. This made my room unliveable for a good 6 months whilst they forced me to still pay rent, making me unable to afford the commute to uni and I was unable to go in. This was not the only thing I had maids unlocking my room and coming in trying to take things, happened to me and my friend luckily we were in our rooms both times. Leadmill refuses to do anything about any problem you have and every aspect of the place is awful, AVOID THIS PLACE.

Living at Leadmill Point has been one of the worst times of my life. The students are awful people who get away with being aggressive and threatening to others because Unite don’t want to lose money by kicking them out, and at the very least, the staff are lazy and just don’t care enough to handle situations with aggressors. As for the flats, they are disgusting. We have a silverfish infestation, theres a huge leak in the kitchen, the cupboard doors have fallen off and not been fixed after I have complained about it repeatedly, a friend of mine in another block could hear a mouse living in her bedroom wall, the bin deposits are open and so rats the size of small cats are living in there, and the shower head (the only decent part of our flat) was replaced by another more terrible shower head that water merely trickles out of. Last week a drunk stranger got into my flat because the front door didn’t lock properly and security got uptight with me for reporting it. Don’t live here.

Terrible halls, wouldnt recomend this to anyone. Bed was filthy when moving in so had to wait for a different one to be moved in. The shower is about as powerful as just standing outside in a light drizzle. Strage mould was growing in the sink when I moved in which when reported nothing was done about it. The oven in the kitchen switches off randomly in the middle of cooking which is a slight problem, two of the three knobs also fell off half way through the year and it took a week to replace them. Overall the worst experience and the worst place I have ever lived.

Extremely old rooms that are obviously full of small holes as we litteraly had an EXPLOSION OF MICE, the staff were completely unhelpful with, they were just trying to blame us, however there was no food and we always maintain everything clean. Please don't waste such an amount of money for such a rubbish place.

Appearance of the rooms are very mediocre, Ugly looking curtains, stained chairs in the living room and carpets which are impossible to clean. I have had a silverfish infestation throughout the year in my bathroom and bedroom!! The bathrooms get extremely damp which I presume is the reason for the silverfish in my bathroom but I have no idea how they are in my room! We have had to report the oven, kettle and toaster various times due to them stopping working which is a major inconvenience. The only main good thing about living here is the location and the wifi has always been efficent.

Aside from being very close to the Cantor and Owen buildings, this accomodation is rubbish. Over the year, there have been problems with mice in most flats, as well as security issues concerning non residents entering the accomodation. During the day both gates are left open, meaning anyone can walk right in - on top of this, the doors for the block AND flat in which I stayed had problems closing properly, and so you could walk straight from the street into our flat. The room and kitchen sizes are fairly mediocre considering the cost, and the ventilation in the ensuite bathrooms is virtually non-existent (resulting in pretty grim living conditions). The staff do nothing to prevent the deafeningly loud music playing at all hours, or the constant stench of weed that finds its way into your room. Every week or so Unite will provide some sort of free food at the reception, and you think 'hey it's not all bad', but actually it is. I would not recommend staying here.

although it's in a prime location the laundry room is annoyingly on the other side of the gate so you have to walk through it at night to get there which is difficult when you have a huge bag of washing. the rooms are adequate and standard across all the uni halls although could do with some modernising especially the disgusting and very thin curtains. wardrobes are a decent size. bathrooms are ok. beds need renewing there was an indent in the mattress from who ever lived in this room the year before which was slightly weird. the social room is behind the laundry room and is always full of foreign exchange students. there's one s***** pool table, one Fussball table and then a few stools around the room. also a tv which you can change the channel of by using the buttons on the tv. all in all not bad but try not to be too shocked at the difference from your parents home (: takes a while to get used to. Staff are really lovely as well.

Great accommodation, only problem is that on first moving in it wasn't the cleanest, however for the price I paid it's worth it. Cleaner every 2 weeks to clean kitchen and living area, helpful staff, one of the closest halls to city campus, would 100% live here again
