Wanna live in Sheffield? Well heres a quick rundown of Crookesmoor. (the number after each subtitle is the rating out of five I give each thing. ie 'Bars (5)' would mean i give the bars there 5 out of five)
Distance from Student Union (4) - About 5-10 minutes depending on which end of Crookesmoor you live on
Shops (4)- A Late shop, Laundrette, Offlicence, few Newsagents, couple of second hand furniture shops, phone shop, chippy, curry/balti houses, cafe, petrol station and a Bookies.
Cash machines (2)- One in the Petrol station but your charged to use it. Theres a free one at the bottom of Crookesmoor just before the arts tower by the Coop.
Best Bars (5)- Hadfiled, Proper student pub. Fairly cheap, nice inside, 3 Pool tables, table footy, quiz machines, owned by the MrQs chain so should stay cheap, cashback available, 3 big screens and loads of small TVs.
Springfield, second best bar in Crookesmoor. Big screen TV, Pool table, Quiz machine, cashback, Buy one get one free on wednesday and fairly cheap pints again.
Distance to West Street Bars (4) - 10 mins walk
Proximity to Freshers (3)- 15-20 mins walk to all the Shef Uni halls
Town (3)- 30 Mins walk
Bus Routes (3)- 95 runs directly through Crookesmoor and town and ends up just infront of the Sheffield interchange.
Quality of Houses (4)- Varying. Nearly all terrace houses with a very similar inside layout. Some houses are lovely inside some are horrible.
Expect to pay (5)- £40-£50 a week
Distance to other Student areas (4)- Broomhill 15 mins, Crookes 5 mins, Eccelshall road 25 mins, Hunters bar 25 mins.
Crime (5 (this means low :)))- As with most parts of Sheffield there is a pretty low amount of crime. However there is the odd burglary/mugging unfortunately. Unlilkely to be asked for a fight.
Proportion of Students to locals (5)- High
l I think Crookesmoor is the best place to live as a student in Sheffield. It's close to pretty much everything and has most things you need minutes away. Thats why I've decided to live ther this year.
