Year on year Stephenson Hall is over-subscribed several times over and the apparentness of this is obvious when you first set foot into the Georgian building. You haven't lived if you never get to visit S-block, this extension contains an assortment of 28 student rooms (**ugh-huh** 27) all featuring a flavouring of modern mustard-coloured walls. The kitchen is the true highlight though with several fridges and other appliances the conscientious student is always on the lookout for. Also as an added bonus, the super-sensitive fire alarms take all the worries away of being trapped in the building during a fire and dying. The student representative from the block (a rare specimen) is always on the lookout to moisten up the environment with the primary intention of increasing the amount of mildew in the corridors.. and fridges... With Schmeggs, Stubbz, Penguins and Spiders it is quite a zoo here too. The Little Mermaid herself resides amongst us along with other nocturnal creatures.

Rooms were really nice and big. However, there is no social space. Although this accommodation is for catered students it would be beneficial to have more than one small fridge between 13 people!

This may be slightly out of date (I was at Stephenson from 1961-63!!!) but then it was definitely the best Hall (cf Crewe & Ranmoor). Mind you things were slightly different, formal dinner every night (we wore our gowns to stop the waitresses spelling gravy on us) and the nights drinking in the bar were legendary, as were the Saturday night hops with coach loads of girls imported from the various teacher training colleges in the region. I suspect it's changed since then

Terrible halls, the oldest in either student village. No social space and single sex flats mean it is very noisy. If you want to party every night its great, but if you actually want to sleep every night then look elsewhere. Rooms are about half the size of the more modern flats in endcliffe and ranmoor, and facilities are extremely poor. There's no security, locks on block doors barely work, and the security staff don't bother to patrol since it is apart from the rest of the student accommodation. Food is lacking and facilities for cooking are dire. In short, if you want to party every night and live in squalor, apply for "stevo". If you want to have a good time at uni and live relatively comfortably without people partying outside your door, apply anywhere else.

Despite only having corridors to socialise on, the amount of people you will come in to contact with and friends you make will make the whole experience worthwhile. If you live in stepheson you will come to absolutely love it,

There are those who will tell you that Stephenson Hall is a hall of failed dreams, where the ghosts of aspirations wonder in a perpetual state of regret for failing to live up to their potential. Stephenson (or 'Stevo' as the locals call it) is a hulking behemoth of a building containing several blocks, but the only ones that anyone gives a s**t about are S Block, B Block and, most importantly, A Block. Do not dream of having 'kitchens' or 'communal rooms', these are facilities for people who are mindless morons who are utterly, insufferably dull. Stephenson adopts the tactic of keeping its inhabitants at the level of people living behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980's (i.e. everything's s**t, but if you complain, the cleaners will shoot you in the name of the glorious revolution). It is the worst, and therefore, the best, of all accommodation.

By far the best accommodation. The water in the taps are so hot you can make tea straight from them. The 'no window, no ventilation' kitchen is basically a free sauna, so say goodbye to a costly gym membership. The tunes are loud

Somewhat the outcasts of Endcliffe, we stand together as fight, led by our fierce leader Patrick Trant III. Braveheart like he stands tall as we rally together to fight off Schmegg like intruders and protect Stevo's inhabitants. Some say that there is a difference in temperature from room to room. Where as the upper floors bathroom can be compared to hoth from the Empire Strikes Back. Overall its sick brah

The sort of place you might run into a wild Schmegg if this was a Pokemon game, but don't worry, you don't even need a regular pokéball to catch him. Gym Leader Trant is a good fellow, specialises in moist type Pokemon.

Probably one of the worst halls in Sheffield uni in terms of room size and facilities but I can almost guarantee that its the most social Hall here! Therefore if you value having an amazing time and meeting loads of (mostly) great people over having a slightly larger desk, sofas and a decent sized kitchen then stevo is definitely the best Hall!

I'd have to completely disagree with everything everyone else has said. Stephenson is BY FAR the best accommodation. You DO NOT need to have an en-suite bathroom. You DO NOT need to pay for all the extras. You WILL meet the most amazing people in Stephenson. Stephenson is the most social of any accommodation I've been to. The basic living quarters gives everyone something to bond over, knowing that you're all stuck in the same boat, you naturally all get along! I know that the guys I lived with in my first year, will be friends for life! Don't knock Stevo if you've never lived there. I couldn't possibly imagine wanting to live somewhere else!

As Insurance accommodation we didn't really know what to expect, but the fact we were all in the same boat made it much easier. Because of the large groups of people on a corridor you have far more options to find really good friends and we seemed to be by far the most social halls on campus. No the rooms aren't as good and it is catered accommodation, but it's closer to the SU than the rest of the accommodation and it has its own library. At the start we all didn't really like it to be honest, but in the end I was really sad to leave.

The worst accomodation in the uni of sheffield, oldest and all catered - seems everyone I met was put here because of insurance or clearing applications. No social spaces in the flat apart from the large corridors, although the rooms feel bigger than the newer ones (probably because we have a tiny desk compared). Being catered is a pain but you do become proficient in the art of microwave cooking by the end of your first semester. All in all - nice people, I wouldn't pick it if I had a choice.

Living in A-G we had no hot water for 8.5% of the year, and we were always made to feel a burden when we complained. The food on the catered allowance doesn't have a lot of choice and you have to pay extra for vegetables a lot of the time. The cleaning was, to start with, very poor but improved as the year went on. There's no social space (apart from the hall) and the corridors at too small to congregate in. However, I've met amazing friends!
