I loved living here this year and have a room booked here for my 2nd year at hallam too! Great location: near to the main bar strip in Sheffield for nights out (West Street). Also, it’s 2 minutes from Tesco/KFC/Subway/Dominoes and 5 minutes from the Moor Market and high street. Each campus is a 10-15 minute walk max too. The rooms are a good size and you get a en-suite too so don’t need to worry about sharing a bathroom. The kitchens are also modern and I didn’t struggle for cupboard space. There’s a TV which my flatmate linked his Apple TV box to, so we always have movie nights. :) It’s also a very sociable and friendly hall. The staff set up a Facebook group initially for us to find our flatmates before we moved in on freshers week but also to update us on any events they run ( cake, sweets and chocolate available in the office to celebrate days e.g Halloween / Christmas themed)
I’ve been here for my first year and I’ve loved every second of it. The location is the best part in my opinion. You’re close to all the clubs and bars (but not too close that it’s really loud). West street is a 2 minute walk and the moor and moor market are a 4 min walk away. Additionally you’re soooo close to town and a 10 min walk away from uni. Just the best location ! It is a very sociable hall, so if you’re not a social person, then this is not the place for you. The management and on site team are lovely, and there’s a security guard on site 24/7- who I’ve seen help many drunk people multiple times. The bathrooms are very small. They’re tiny but you get used to it. The only downside is the noise. My room backs onto Devonshire lane which is an ‘alley way’ that constantly has people walking through it, which can be noisy at night sometimes. A bar and restaurant also back onto the lane and they can be quite loud during close. But I’d still pick liberty again, loved it here
Don't be fooled by big rooms and amazing location. Staff aren't keen to help and can be intrusive with the managers and maintenance letting themselves in to the flats whenever they want. Really boring atmosphere overall in liberty hall not very much going on at all so doesn't really matter that the walls are paper thin and the kitchens are set out in an unsociable way, with all the seats facing one way. The quality of the fittings and furniture in the flats is much lower than most of the other halls I have visited in Sheffield, theres not enough storage space in the kitchen or the bedrooms and I shared one small fridge with 4 people. Spotted mice around the flats a few times and always near the outside bins. Overall not at all what I thought my halls experience would be, i didn't expect to be living in luxury but I did think it would at least be fun and entertaining but all i can think is boring. Can't wait to move into a house next year
The location is great and so are my flatmates. However, I’m very disappointed. When I moved in, my bathroom had mould in several spots (maybe the reason I’ve been ill a lot while living here). And there are cracks on the walls and every week there are bugs crawling out of them in my bedroom. I clean my flat literally all the time, there’s nothing I could do to prevent these problems. I find it quite unfair that Liberty Hall is the only Hallam accommodation that us Erasmus students can have while my English friends live in new, clean, bugless halls. The staff is super nice though!
My room is a double room which I pay £15 more per week for, however the room itself is smaller than all the other rooms available. Feel very ripped off by this. I have openly heard the hall management saying that they “hate students” and as such they email us almost weekly introducing new rules that would not exist in any other student accommodation on the planet. The internet access is taken down for maintenance almost 2 times every week, which when working on assignments is very disruptive. When I signed my contract we were promised a flat TV license (we were told this only covered the TV provided and not any laptops or personal TV’s) and a cleaner for the shared spaces, neither of these have been provided and I have not had a response from Liberty Living, only a very rude email from the halls manager almost telling me to get lost with my complaints. Would not recommend this Hall to any students, Hallam is an amazing uni it’s just a shame that Liberty Living aren’t.
First year living it liberty. Has its ups and downs. The location is utterly perfect. But for the first week we had no oven between 5. It was 'next day delivered' on the sat we moved in. We expected a tues delievery. But it wasnt installed till friday. In additon our fridge broke ("due to age") the following week. Replaced in 4 days. Furthermore a wash is £2.80, not libertys fauly but coin machines or them looking at alternatives would be nicer. The reception staff are amazing & super helpful. Depends on block placement for rooms sizing. Being in a corner block our kitchen is massive ( as shown on open days) however the others are tiny and have seen plenty having 3/4 bar stools but 5 people in the flat making it near impossible to eat together. The veiws onto devs green are amazing. However its a huge eye opener & most nights tne returning students or homeless are loud so god help thr summer months when i will want the window open! Would deffo live here for the price you pay!
Disclaimer: If not for the incidents of this year I would rate 5/5 on for the two years I have lived in these halls however for transparency I feel it's only fair to inform prospective tenants of my experience. At the beginning of this academic year, just one week before we were due to move in, we received an email saying that during the year refurb of all flats would be taking place. This would mean at any time we would be asked to move out all of our things into a different room - lets not downplay the enormity of that task. On top of this, evidently, there would be construction noise throughout the year. I don't know if I'm being sensitive but it seems a bit deceptive to only inform student once their contract is in place and money has been taken. Update - this did not happen in the end due to one of the flats in the halls giving out static shock through the en suite taps/water for over a month. My guess is the refurb is for next year now but funnily enough they don't know yet.
As a second year this was my 2nd year in halls and I wouldn't be fooled by the location of this halls. The location is perfect being minutes from everything. However, it is much in need of referb the bathroom is tiny with just about enough space, rooms are decently sized yet do not compare with that of unite students. The kitchen is the best part of the flat however even this is small in comparison to other halls. To make the halls experience even better we were constantly surrounded by the sound of workmen and disruption to our lives with drills and other work happening almost every day. On moving in i was also surprised to find my room not up to my own standards of cleanliness resulting in me cleaning the whole of my new flat before using anything. The staff were nice and approachable which made the experience slightly better.
Decent for the price, however the location and thin walls means you can hear everyone going to/coming from a night out (they love to shout.) Maintainance let themselves in whenever they want and will take as long as they like when you need something fixed (It took 2 weeks to fix my extractor fan) They were carrying out construction throughout the year so there was plenty of loud noise throughout the day and this also left the stairwells filthy. Common room is very good, plenty of things to do. Social experience is perfect if you like to go out a lot, you save a lot of money as you don’t need to pay for a taxi. The internet is very good if you connect with an Ethernet cable, however if you connect over WiFi you’ll often have random cut outs and extremely slow speeds throughout the day/night which is insanely annoying. Overall I’d give it 2 stars.
Seasoned parent and know good accomodation when I see it. The rooms are good but what makes these flats are the HUGE lounge kitchen diner . A fab social space. It's in a great location no need for taxis home after a night out.
Location is f****** mint - up the road from corp, down the road from west street. Two minutes away from Subway, Taco Bell, KFC, Dominoes, etc. 10/15 minutes away from both campuses and train station. Kitchens and rooms are rather big and clean, en-suites are great. New common room with xbox one and PS4, snooker table, etc. Been a great first year here.
If you get landed with good flat mates; Garuntee this will be the best year of your life. If you get landed with a bad flat mate, like me.. it's hell. If you're a light sleeper you won't get any sleep... The walls are paper thin, and if you have respectful flat mates then it's a great halls to live in, however I was placed next to a person who stays up until 3am every morning in his room making lots of noise. The halls has terrible staff in my opinion, they are inconsistent with solutions to problems and would refuse to relocate me in another flat that was free and would not sort out the issue with my loud flat mate. He internet is temprinental and not very good wirelessley but is good wired. Would never stay here again, as it's a good place to party but not to live, especially once getting to your exams and coursework deadlines.
Great location in terms of area, rooms are nice and the flat itself is modern and great, the downside this is not the place to come if you aren't the best at sleeping not donut enjoy noise, it's constantly loud from 7pm and through till 3am, you can hear every footstep above you and every door being slammed throughout the block, not to mention the walls are dead thin. I can literally hear conversations my flat mate is having which I think it's terrible. Also a lot of noise from people after a night out. Overall it's great but the noise has annoyed me to the point of wanting to leave.
A great place to be if you're really into partying as the location is fab. However it is extremely loud and the walls aren't very thick so if you're wanting quiet nights I would probably go else where. Overall it is a lovely place though and would recommend.
Lovely, modern flat. Living in a mixed flat where there's 2 girls and 2 boys. There's 8 flats in our block that we mostly talk to, great distance to Corp (on the doorstep) and west street/Carver street (literally two minutes walk) no need for public transport anywhere..such a good location. Security arent as strict as I thought but yet they're there if you need them. Had problems with my room and all was fixed the same day!
The value is great with en suits from only £95, security is good but not too strict and there are always flat parties however not too late on. It is a perfect distance from everything, Never have to walk more than 15 minutes to get anywhere.
It was very easy to make friends here in freshers as there was always a party going on somewhere. But just be aware that if you're too loud security will ask you to keep it down but they're usually fine if you're respectful and don't kick off with them. We've had many parties and just been told to keep the music down but never had any problems or been kicked out. Just don't have music too loud after like 12. The location is brilliant, one of the best for hallam. Close to all the nightlife. Like a minute to walk to corp, 5 mins to carver street and less than 10 minutes to plug/code. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to uni at city campus and the train station. The halls are really nice compared to some of the ones my friends are staying in and they're paying more money! Also the caretakers really good at coming to fix anything that's broken or not working and it's usually done very quickly! Had the best first year living here!
