Sheavyn is the perfect middle ground if you want to live on Owen's Park: you don't fancy roughing it out in the infamous Tower or Oak House, you get the beauty of the Ashbourne side with the green spaces and pond without paying for the extraness that is Ashbourne. Because it's en suites, it really doesn't matter that it's 9-10 people in each flat. If you're lucky, you could also get the very top floor of your block with only 9 people and a larger kitchen in comparison to the other floors. The bedrooms and en suites are simple: there's a long desk, desk chair, single bed, shelves, built in wardrobe, chest of draws, an additional chair, shower cubicle etc. but it's easy enough to make it feel personal. Lucky enough to get a very social flat, so because we got on really well from the very start we didn't end up mixing with rest of Sheavyn as much and ended up making friends with those from the other parts of Owens Park. But there was always things going on around Sheavyn too so don't be disheartened if you don't bond with your housemates straight off the bat – and you're never too far away from the rest of the Owens Park antics. So, if you want a social experience and interested in experiencing a bit more of Manchester (albeit, Manchester student life) it's worth living further out from the university and picking the Owen's Park campus. Getting to both central and north campus is super straight forward and there's way more buses regularly running just outside OP on Wilmslow Road than you'd expect, so don't be put off by the distance.
