If you're considering where to live in your first year of uni then Endcliffe is the place to be and more specifically Howden flats. It is the closest set of flats to walking to uni, you are right opposite The Edge so perfect to do your washing and to pick up any post/binbags from the reception. You're also right near the field which is ideal for summer and the taxi rank is so close so perfect for nights out. I loved my flat in Howden and my room looked right on to the square outside the Edge so i could always see what was going on. And because it was the closest block of flats to the exit to walk to uni, my friends would always drop by for a catch up on their way home. The flats also all have lifts and there's a mix of size flats to choose from. I would recommend not choosing a ground floor flat because you'll have plenty people walking by. First year really was the best because of Endcliffe. It is nothing like any other uni and makes it so easy to socialise because everyone is togethe

Considering all other locations at the University, Endcliffe campus is by far the best. Howden block specifically can get rather noisy as it is situated near the road where most students come in and out when the go on a night out, which is something to bear in mind if you don’t want to go out much and don’t want to suffer from the noise. The Edge building is class as it offers an onsite place for students to socialise or work outside of the flat, without having to go all the way to the University/ nearest Village. I feel the kitchen/communal lounge is rather small for what we are paying for, and I recommend staying in Deluxe rooms if you can afford to.

Extremely loud if you get a room facing the Edge, even during exam time. "Quiet Time" is not enforced by security.

Loved all of my time at Sheffield, but having these halls in year one made it extra special. Close to social spots, all my friends close by, en-suite, clean and accessible.

Rooms and the flat overall are great but aren't really worth the money, but I guess the social experience and environment make up for the cost. Endcliffe is the place to be in first year, easy to get to and everyone loves it.

For what you pay, this place is not worth it. Half the stuff in my room doesn't work, the hot water goes out constantly, it's dead loud all through the night, and the rooms/beds are tiny. Spend the same amount of money and get yourself a nice flat that isn't student accommodation.

Good location, central to everything. 1 minute from the Edge and Launderette. Only problem is it can become a little noisy...

Although they are most probably more expensive than a student house, I believe it is the perfect place to be in first year- I lived with amazing people and friends from my course were in buildings next door- it was so great that everyone was so close and made my social experience 10x better!
