Although initially applying to Stephenson Hall, i was shunted off to Ranmoor. Thank god that happened! Ranmoor Halls is just up the road from Broomhill, a great little hub of shops (24 hr super market etc), news agents, and pubs. Also situated on the 60 bus route (straight into town + uni) its really well placed for students. The halls have about 700 people, which some say is a bad thing, yet in reality its quite good. With all the people comes all the extra facilities; Ranmoor boats a great pub, with pool tables; A massive hall for events; a couple of music rooms, 4 tv rooms, and its own canteen. The rooms at Ranmoor are all catered, and non-ensuite, which works out ok really. There is a kitchen area with most mod -cons on each floor, combined with a couple of showers on each floor aswell. The cleaners come around weekly and sort the mess out. The rooms also come with IT points which connect you to the UNI network + the internet, which is quite fast. Along side this you also get a phone point + phone. The one downside to living at ranmoor is the food. Its... well.... appauling. They do try hard on times, but it can really be quite amazingly bad!
