Read The Elements Reviews
I lived at the elements in 2019/20. I absolutely loved it! I shared my flat with 2 boys and 2 other girls. The area surrounding is never loud and I found it so easy to sleep at night. The wifi is great and each room has their own radiator. The staff were all so nice and very accommodating. The location of the elements is perfect when attending Sheffield Hallam uni as its a short walk to both campus' and right next to an Aldi. The Elements is also very close to all the nightclubs. I would highly recommend this accommodation for any students.
Very poor accommodation, small rooms and very expensive. Internet is often slow. Security guard is a nuisance, if you want to have friends come round then you'll have to go to open the gate each time, trust me this will get annoying
Lovely halls to stay in. It's very modern and clean and the staff are really helpful. It's around a similar price to The Forge around the corner but it's a lot nicer. The only downside is that you have to ask to see if you have any letters and the reception is only open from 12-1 on the weekends which is awkward for parcels.
Really good accommodation to stay in, I love it here! Always feel safe and secure, the caretakers are amazing, and the communal areas are a great place to chill and meet other students especially in freshers week when events are taking place.
The Elements has been an amazing experience to make new friends and has allowed me to have a better experience of university as a whole. Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Sheffield. Lovely accommodation, friendly staff and perfect location.
Elements is nice , there is no denying it is better than the other offers , the nearby forge is enough proof of this. I can speak on behalf of everyone in elements that within 5 minutes of arriving here and looking across the road we all clocked on to the fact that we had made a wise decision. However the experience has been weird to say the least. Nice buildings don’t hide unfriendly staff and a constant feeling that we are simply cattle being moved on , starting from after freshers the attention of the staff quickly turns to packing in the next pack of tenants. I don’t feel entirely safe either , my block has consistently had a broken door allowing anyone without a key entry , this is currently happening and is worrying considering getting into the complex is easy. The fact that letters have gone missing and the attitude towards collecting packages is so poor has meant I now use the amazon locker as at least I won’t be rudely spoken too by a big orange box.
The staff are so lovely, they make living here feel like home from home. It’s in a great location for both uni campuses. Local supermarkets are close too. I feel very safe living here and can tell how much the staff care about us.
I have lived at The Elements for my first year and living here was the best decision I could have made. The staff make it so easy to settle in and are always on hand if you need them, they also always put events / freebies on which we love!!!! I live with a great group of people and we are all coming back next year.
In comparison to other halls for similar prices, the elements has to be considered the best student accommodation for Hallam students. Things I like are the social areas, high levels of security and great location to both campus', gyms and city centre. It is also a bonus when the staff generously offer free food and drink occasionally in reception.
Staying at Elements was one of the reasons it was really easy to settle into University life. The location being close to both uni buildings and being 5 minutes away from an Aldi is incredibly helpful. Everything about my experience has been great.
This accommodation is very good for value of money. The other accommodations available are a similar price but aren’t as modern and clean as the elements. The location is great for both campuses and a 15 min walk to the train station. Management are very friendly and welcoming. They always say hi and know everyone by their names. Reception always has free treats such as pop, sweets, hot chocolate ect... The wifi is generally great, only had one issue with it during my stay but it was fixed very quickly when I contacted the company ASK4.
The elements has a modern, clean and friendly environment. The 24hour caretakers are really helpful at all hours, and staff our friendly. It's a great halls to meet new people who all in the same situation as you. The location is perfect being a very short walk to aldi, town and in the middle of both city and collegiate campus. You always have a source of entertainment in the social room, a place to workout in the gym and a silent study room to when workloads increase.
Elements is great it’s a new accommodation, it’s well built and the rooms are really pretty, the facilities like the common room and study room and well equipped and also have a nice design, there’s a laundry room, gym and easy to access bin storage. Overall it’s a great accommodation which I’ve already recommended to future students. The staff are really nice too.
I feel so lucky to have a room at the elements and I think it is the best accommodation in Sheffield for Hallam. It is a modern and clean accommodation with a range of suitable facilities for those of a young age setting out at university.
Staff are so lovely and caretakers are sound! Always spotless in the communal areas and they are so quick to deal with any issues - we had a problem with our heater and a caretaker was here to fix it within the hour. Such a lovely lovely place to live :))
it’s a 15 mins walk from collegiate and about 10 from city. right by the city centre and aldi. the gym is quite small but has most things needed for a simple workout. room inspections are a pain and parcels get lost quite often at reception. having everything provided is amazing
The Elements is a great place to live but the laundry is overpriced and smoking (cigarettes but also weed, ketamine and cream chargers) in kitchens is not taken seriously by the elements staff when they have been informed many times.
Living at the elements has been an enjoyable experience, the courtyard makes it a more social experience as everyone walks past etc as well as the games room. Sometimes it can be annoying when u are trying to sleep and people are playing music at 4/5 in the morning.
This first year has been the best experience I could have wanted. The close blocks, meant within the first week I’d meant half of my current friends and see them every day.the place is modern, well kept and am enjoying living here so far. The social spaces are great aswell having a selection of games to play in the evening and with it being a 5/10 minute walk to town it’s the perfect place to come back to after a night out
Really great place to stay. Hall management and caretakers couldn’t be any better-always there to help. Rooms and bathrooms are brilliant, great sizes. Only issues are there isn’t much cupboard/fridge/freezer space and the gym and laundry rooms are very small for the 700+ people that live there. Overall an amazing place to stay In your first year 👍🏼
The elements provides a great atmosphere for us students, as well as a great location for the likes of going to University, Clubs and for some, the football! It allows for people to easily meet others with events put on but the fantastic team at the Elements.
Such a great place to live, reception staff so helpful and caretakers really nice and if you have any issues they always sort them out really quick. I was unfortunate to get flatmates that aren’t really sociable but didn’t struggle to make friends in other flats. High quality living in a decent part of sheffield.
Really good halls that are clean and modern. The bedroom, bathroom and the kitchen are all really nice and spacious and new. There is 24hr staff around which is really good for if you accidentally lock yourself or of your room or have an issue. Maintenance respond to requests really fast. Only a little bit more expensive than some of my friends halls and I think that the Elements is much nicer so definitely worth the money. In a great location near shops and about 15-20 mins to both campuses. Very close to town and pubs and clubs.
The Elements is ok if you have come to party and not work however the walls are extremely thin and there is little to no privacy. If you are unfortunate enough to get room mates who like to use the kitchen as their own private night club then don’t count on getting any sleep as the security will do little to nothing to stop it and it can go on all night. When you request to move rooms the elements are not very supportive of this. The facility’s are ok but the kitchen TV is very poorly placed as it is on the wall of room 1 so when someone is watching it you also get to listen ( this is ok until it’s 3 in the morning and you are in at 9.) Room inspections are a bit over the top however you can appreciate it helps them stop damage. The Elements is however very conveniently placed with the university about a 20 walk away and there are shops very close as well as night clubs and the WiFi is perfectly fine.
I’ve lived in the Elements for my first year of Uni and I’ve really enjoyed it, I think it’s definitely one of the better accommodations to stay in in Sheffield and the staff are all lovely. Maintenance is usually very quick whenever there’s an issue and they are always happy to help. Reception is always decorated nice for special occasions which is nice to see, the only down side I’d say is it can be very noisy at night, however obviously this is not an issue of the accommodation and not much can be done about it. Would definitely recommend The Elements to any new students.
I have really enjoyed my time at The Elements, from the social aspect of having communal study areas to the location from city and collegiate campus. I would definitely recommend The Elements to anyone starting or finding somewhere to live in at Hallam.
Absolute conmen. Gave my keys in and moved out months ago and they’re still charging me for a flat mates mess who was still living there. Management don’t give a toss, and they’ll even lock the common area for the day so they can have their do/meeting in there spending your rent on champagne for themselves - yet - they never paid to get the pool table fixed all year. Honestly feels like a posh prison. Don’t be fooled by it being new! They will take any opportunity for your money. For example, they failed our inspection for a bit of mud on the chair (Petty!!) but none of us had lived there for a while, so we asked if they could give us a couple of days to go back and wipe it off, but no, instant 20 pound charge. Do not go here! Awful first year to uni.
Don’t move into these halls, host are insanely strict and will carry our monthly inspections on the kitchen/rooms and will threaten to make you pay for something they deem as missing/broken ( even though they’re often not) awful value for money compared to other halls in Sheffield. Avoid at all costs
