Perfect location for Sheffield Hallam University and as close to the train station you can get. Staff are so lovely and go above and beyond to help with your enquiries. Security is always on site so it's very secure. This is the perfect accomodation for students who like their own space and privacy.

It’s been a pleasure living at Laycock for 2 years now. The staff are friendly and tend to your needs whether it’s through phone call, email or face-to-face. Frances has been really helpful whenever I had any issues! Communal areas are cosy and usually decently cleaned. The only thing I would criticise on is the lack of cleaning of the outside windows of the rooms - they can get quite dirty and it’s unclear how long they’ve gone without a clean. Overall, it has been a pleasant experience and I have rebooked once again.

Covid-19: During this difficult time, Laycock Studios have been extremely helpful in cancelling studio contracts for the rest of the academic year, with no hidden fees. They have also allowed to keep belongings in rooms until it is safe to properly move out!

Exceptional spacing in studios for the weekly bronze pricing, with plenty of furniture provided in the rooms too with space to organise personal belongings. All facilities were great, and any minor issues I noticed were fixed within a day of reporting it and never experienced any issues that were requiring urgent repair. Good spaced bathroom with shower and plenty of storage space in there too. Some studios had less cupboards in the kitchen area, however did have the same space for boxes or own built shelves to place underneath. Only issue with the WiFi was during the storm as it had cut off the line and therefore needed to be fixed by the Ask4 company. Overall really happy with this accommodation and gutted had to cut it short due to the Covid-19 but that was personal choice.

Covid-19: Helped providing additional cleansing around the building from the start of this pandemic. In addition to this, I was provided with the ability to apply for early release and not have to pay for the remaining of the rents due to moving to my grandparents to help them more. Frances Prendergast in particular maintained emails to me during this early release to ensure that I had all my items and make sure I was ok in general.

I have had the best experience living at Laycock Studios! It is by far the best value for money you get that I found after looking around so many different studios! Frances was the biggest help when the studio I wanted (bronze) was fully booked and soon as one became available again she emailed me straight away and I managed to secure mine! A big thank you to her!! She was so helpful throughout the whole process! Staying here really accommodated my situation and paying for rent was made so easy, I was able to pay online monthly during the summer while I was working full time then began to pay termly once I started back at university in line with my student finance. Complete stress free!! Reception is always manned 24/7 which is always so useful and makes you feel very secure! It also means you never miss a parcel delivery!! The staff really do make you feel at home, they seem to remember everyone’s name which is lovely. The location is absolutely perfect as well!

Covid-19: My tenancy wasn’t meant to end until September 2020 but due to the outbreak they have enabled us us to have an early release cancellation free of charge (move out April 30th) which has been amazing. They even offer the option to pay weekly if you are unable to move out by the date so it really does suit everyone’s needs! I know of some people with different accommodation providers in Sheffield do not have this benefit. Overall, they have been amazing!

All the staff are super helpful and they are giving their best to help us out even in this difficult time. Frances was super nice too, she helped me quite a lot whenever I needed a hand. The location of this acc is good, very convenient. It has everything that we need, the best part is rebookers don’t have to move our stuff when we are away.

Covid-19: Yes, they’ve offered to refund us from May to the end of the contract, very heartwarming cause they understand our difficulties

Best accommodation choice by far, the staff is always friendly and willing to help, feel secure at all times. Great facilities and study areas. It's also literally 2 minutes away from the train station. Thank you for a lovely experience!

Covid-19: I was able to empty my room before the final payment and they waived the last payment. SO helpful!

Laycock Studios was by far the best accommodation I have stayed at during my three years at Sheffield Hallam. Safe and secure, you don’t have far to walk after a late-night library session. The on-site team are all great - Fran seems to know everyone by name and James is always friendly and chatty! I had a few noise issues but Dan and the night security were great with resolving any disturbances! The social spaces and facilities are perfect. At the start of the year, the team held a pizza party which was a fun way to meet your neighbours. The only issue was that the intercom system didn't work, otherwise, everything else was perfect! I was sad to leave my flat, Laycock Studios really did become a home away from home!

Covid-19: Student Roost were fantastic with allowing tenancy agreement to end from May, if required.

We came here when this building first opened and have stayed for over 2 and half years. We have thoroughly enjoyed living here. Staff are great!

Covid-19: Changes to the cancellation policy allowed many to get out of their contract to return home to family due to the closures of university.

Laycock studios is a great place to live as a student, especially if you want a studio so you can have your own space and still have the option to use the social spaces, like the study room, common room, gym. The only downside to the site is the cost is quite high for a Gold/Platinum studio, however it is worth it if you can afford it. I feel really safe and happy living here and wish I could live here even after finishing university! The team on site are great, Fran, Dan, Nezar and James really make it a cosy family environment, and are always willing to help or just have a chat! Absolutely love it here and can’t recommend it enough.

Amazing size room for the money, great facilities, lovely staff members, great service and more. The staff go above and beyond what’s expected to ensure that my experience at this accommodation is the best I could have. My room was spotless on arrival and so was the rest of the building. Whilst it’s next to the main road, there are windows which block the noise out.

The common room is big with a pool table, table football and large television - it is an ideal spot to socilaise with friends. I found the staff to be friendly and accommodating.
