My experience at LIV Student Sheffield has been extremely homely, the accommodation is a lovely, modern place to live with approachable and kind staff available at all times through-out the day. Security are present 24 hours to ensure safety within the building is a guarantee when arriving. The staff here also work really hard to put on countless events each month to keep residents busy and entertained when not focusing on university. I live in a studio flat and it is great value for money considering the space given as well as plenty of room for storage of items. Any issues are acted on straight away to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and the Wi-Fi is really quick on all levels of the building. All in all it truly is an amazing place to live and I would recommend LIV to any students studying at either Sheffield Hallam or Uni of Sheffield, it is a short walk to both Hallam campuses and a little further to Uni of, but is absolutely worth every penny.

The accommodation has a lot of potential i would be lying if i said it doesn't but the management is horrible. The building was supposed to be finished in September. They then told us November then April and its still not finished. The cafe in the sky lounge only had a soft opening for a week and never reopened again.

Dear liv management The recent coronavirus outbreak has meant that the overwhelming majority of students have been forced to return home. This has means that they are effectively paying over £2000 for nothing. Despite repeated requests, LIV have refused to allow residents to leave their contracts and issue a full refund. While LIV professes to ‘create student communities’ they have demonstrated

I’m a first year living at LIV student and my experience has been nothing but positive. The staff are so super friendly and are always always always down for a chat and will make you feel right at home! The bedrooms are so nice and we’re super clean on arrival, same goes with the study spaces and social spaces. There is breakfast almost every morning (makes sure you get there early though!) and the location is also great, defiantly the closest to campus by a substantial amount. Would definitely recommend, from LIVS favourite ⭐️

They’ve done it again!!! Absolutely nailed it this year. As far as writing this review goes, I cannot fault Liv one bit! Can’t fault them at all!!! The facilities and the extra perks that they have to offer are second best to NONE. The staff are all so friendly and they are passionate about providing the best possible service; of which is evident through the service delivered. Moving away for University can be very scary and overwhelming, but staying at Liv has taken my mind off if it. They provide literally everything a student could want, need or ask for. As far as reviews go, even a 7* rating would not do this place any justice.

Really lovely student accommodation and there's a visible effort from the staff to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The accomodation is about a 20 min walk from multiple locations within Sheffield. The only downside I would have to say is that to get anywhere you have to go through the underpass system so public transport is highly recommended as it's starting to get dark. The building itself is well maintained and there is always lots of social events to get to know other students in the building. My one "moan" would be that I don't think the breakfasts provided are the best value for money when you compare it against the rent payments; a croissant twice a week and cereal/yoghurt for three days. Plus the hot drink machines get switched off at the weekend. Not suggesting a full English but this could definitely be improved. However, overall I'm please with the accomodation and glad that I chose LIV Sheffield!

When I first arrived at LIV management were really friendly explained everything well and answered any queries I had. I went up to my room and I was bitterly disappointed, the room was not what I had been showed on my ‘walk around’ before signing my tenancy agreement. I had always expressed I wanted a studio apartment and the room I had walked into was extremely small! I couldn’t fit in the shower and I’m not a large person, the kitchen smaller than advertised and the study area was practically in the kitchen workspace. I shared my concerns with LIV and all was sorted straight away and a new room was found. The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful and still are to this day. The location is great, town is only a 5 min walk, Ecclesall Road shops are a short distance and the University’s are within walking distance. The building compared to other student accommodations is luxurious. However my only concern is not to trust the rooms compared to the website pictures.

I can’t explain to you how bad this place is, stayed here for my first year and stayed through lockdown and can honestly say the place is disgusting. Staff are very young give emails about inspections and come 2 hours later. No hot water half the time, internet cuts out all the time even with a Ethernet cable and the internet on the phone is terrible. I have no good words to say about this place because it was a nightmare

Nothing is ever too much for the staff, they’re very welcoming and helpful.. Social spaces are brilliant and cleaned regularly… Rooms in apartments are spacious and the shared areas are very comfortable with a very good quality TV and soundbar… Studios are not worth the money as they don’t get anything provided; no tv, no toaster, no kettle, the oven is only a microwave and they are very small compared to the shared apartments. However the Shared apartments are brilliant. Location is also perfect, shops, nightlife and university campus on the doorstep.

Staff are extremely friendly, helpful and often efficient in solving problems. The accommodation is modern and in perfect location for both nightlife and university campus. 9th floor roof terrace is an excellent social space and provides a great view of Sheffield. It’s a place I feel safe and would recommend to anybody.

Was really not set up for taking on students for this year, rooms not finished and things missing and braking. No hot water and the fact you couldn’t sleep without someone coming into your room atleast 2 times a week to do something. Terrible management and never tried to help with anything you had to say or needed. This is just some of the things why this place has been terrible first year experience.

Would not recommend to Anyone moving to university. Building still not completed even though it was meant to be completed by December, cannot do any uni work from constant noise starting at early hours disturbs sleep constantly. Staff are useless, builders wolf whistled and inappropriately stared and commented, got reported several times to management nothing was done. No cafe or proper breakfast which was advertised (clearly bait) repeated internet issues, power cuts and constant cold showers due to no hot water. Security that was promised is not at the entrance to the building but on the 9th floor which is useless, anyone can get in as people hover for someone with a key card to open the door and they go in with them. Massive issues with privacy, male builders repeatedly enter the flat and rooms without permission Occurred many times when I was asleep. Restrictions on collecting parcels no weekends and certain times in the day. Washing machines don’t work and take all your money!

While LIV may look like an attractive luxury accommodation from the pictures, the management is so shocking it’s made living here an awful experience. We’ve had no end of issues and you really aren’t getting what is advertised and what you’re paying for. The showers ran cold for over a month, the building was never finished even though it should have been by December at the latest. The washing machines don’t work and take your money, the often closed the social spaces (which are the only thing that actually redeem the place) just for photo/video shoots and to host guests. They aren’t releasing us from our contract early due to covid-19 like most other accommodations are because they are money grabbers. They don’t care about their tenants whatsoever.

Dear liv management The recent coronavirus outbreak has meant that the overwhelming majority of students have been forced to return home. This has means that they are effectively paying over £2000 for nothing. Despite repeated requests, LIV have refused to allow residents to leave their contracts and issue a full refund. While LIV professes to ‘create student communities’ they have demonstrated that they only care about profit as opposed to the welfare of their residents who are extremely anxious and worried during this difficult time. This distress has been compounded by the financial worry resulting from having to pay thousands for facilities and accommodation they are no longer using. The rent is not just for a room and a bed, it is for electricity, water, the shuttle bus, the breakfast every morning,the kitchen facilities as well as use of the 9th floor which for many was the main reason for booking with LIV in the first place. LIV is failing to fulfil its obligations as the shut

Whilst being a lovely accommodation my time here has been plagued by issues you shouldn't expect whilst paying the premium price charged. -Sewage water coming through the shower tray. -Facilities promised not being available. -Water pressure and temperature not working properly for over a month. -Constant disruption from the builders that were supposed to be done by December. -Invasion of privacy, walking into flats without notice.
