Possibly one of the worst places I have ever lived. Rude, Clueless and Unhelpful staff and poor low quality accommodation, everything breaks, I've been waiting all year for them to fix my dripping toilet which means I'm not sleeping properly and the showers block every three days but apparently there is nothing they can do.



Oh, and they are trying to charge us for these absolutely cheap and tacky lamps that were not put onto the inventory, we were not told that they should be left behind until a month before our tenancy ends.



Laundry also is expensive and one machine wrecked all my clothes... the laundry company were just like unite, rude and in no way looking to help.



Waste of money, feels like hell on earth here and I'd rather live with the homeless man who sits outside Sainsburys next door.

I had the misfortune of living here for my first year of university. When visiting my friends flats i realised how awful it is to live here. Things constantly breaking and taking weeks to repair, loud noises never being dealt with and people climbing over the fence to break into peoples flats.

Before coming to The Forge in September 2014 I was quite looking forward to my stay, I Should have probably considered viewing the property before coming however it was not offered when I came to the university open day before beginning.

The points that sold me to this venue were the Gym facilities and en-suite, that's about it as most halls in Sheffield offer the same services.

I stayed in block E which unfortunately unlike the other blocks had not been refurbished (yet we pay the same as everybody else.)

On arrival I found numerous issues with the flat, dented radiator, dented fridge, stains on carpet, stains on chairs (one looks like a huge urine stain down the back of one of the chairs)

Within the first few months of being in the accommodation there was an issue where the water would continuously be disconnected for multiple hours, this went on for a number of weeks.

The toilet in my block has been dripping since I've moved in and the shower gets blocked every three days... (I'm a male, I don't have long hair.)

The microwave provided doesn't function as it should, timer doesn't work...

Further to this, the entry into the block was continuously at risk (and still is today) - to the point where a neighbor has witnessed three non-students enter the building in the early hours of the morning for an unknown reason. Sometimes the magnetized door does not lock and there is also a fire-door next to the main door with a broken hinge.

The mail facilities need urgent attention, some are broken and don't look which puts your post at risk, the gym facilities are in need of attention also.

The washroom is ran by circuit, who seem to be in the business of absolutely ripping off their clients, similar to Unite in ways (their car-park is £900 for the year... LOL) - One time the washing machine stained all of my clothes and all they offered was to refund the money used to wash the clothes.

The location itself is next to the infamous "London Road" - In my first week here, I witnessed two men come out of "Barrys Bar", one smashed a bottle on the wall and stuck it in the others neck. The area is NOT nice and traveling around at night can be a risk.

All in all £4,400approx is NOT value for money. I'd avoid and look elsewhere. I've reported all issues and have seen a miniscule amount of compensation.

Greedy company who seem to have failed to sell all of their rooms this year, not surprised. Glad to see the back of this place when I leave.
