Sheffield for students
Sheffield may well have earned itself the proud nickname ‘Steel City’, but its transformation from the heart of industry to a modern marvel has blown away both locals and students, thanks to The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and The Sheffield College.
There's a strong student population choosing to flock to the city year on year. As an exciting, central city, Sheffield is a blessing to students in that it is both easy to navigate, and easy to afford.
You’ll never be stuck for things to do, as the city has experienced a rejuvenation in recent years which places it right in the centre of the action. It’s home to some great higher education facilities, matched by great nightlife and of course, our student accommodation in Sheffield which places you right in the middle of it all.
Sheffield has some incredible – and more than just edible – dining options throughout the city and beyond. Whether you’re on a budget or really, really into burgers, there will be something suitable for you.
If you’re a fan of international cuisine, Sheffield is no stranger to suitable options, as the many Asian, Mediterranean and American-style restaurants are able to prove. Venture out to Leopold Square and you’ll find a hub of top-notch restaurants and bars to cater for all tastes, and in St Paul’s Place, there’s a variety of both chain restaurants and delicious independents.
If you fancy a bit of a day trip, you can of course head out to Sheffield’s huge shopping centre, Meadowhall. You’ll find plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink, so if you shop ‘til you drop, you can re-energise pretty quickly.
Things to do
Sheffield has a brilliant selection of both high street and independent stores dotted across the city centre. Head to The Forum Shops & Boutiques or Ecclesall Road for indie garments and trinkets, or even the Drop Dead store – a clothing line started by the rock star Oliver Sykes. If you want all your chain stores all under one roof, Meadowhall is just a short bus ride away from our student housing in Leeds.
Perhaps the biggest and best icebreaker of all is to venture out with your new flatmates and experience the nightlife together. It’s a rite of passage to enjoy a night out or two in one of the many popular student clubs and bars throughout the city.
On weekends, film buffs will feel right at home as Sheffield has more than 30 cinema screens. And sport fans, we haven’t forgotten about you! Check out the action from the local basketball, ice hockey, RUFC and football teams – especially given that Sheffield United is the oldest football team in the world!
Arts & culture
If you want to learn more about Sheffield’s vast history, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Kelham Island Museum provides an insight into the past, whilst Millennium Gallery is Sheffield's landmark art gallery. No residency in Sheffield is complete without a visit to the stunning Chatsworth House or the equally notable Botanical Gardens.
If nature’s your thing, you’ll feel right at home in the Winter Gardens, an iconic building housing over 2000 species of plants. Also unique to Sheffield is its impressive theatre complex, Sheffield Theatres, the largest of its kind outside of London.
Sheffield’s music scene is loud and proud, and accounts for some of the UK’s greatest exports when it comes to home-grown talent. It’s not hard to imagine where it all began, when you can visit some of the top venues where such acts got their first big break. Today, venues across the city showcase both local and national talent, and whilst Motorpoint Arena Sheffield, O2 Academy and Sheffield City Hall are the three main concert venues, the Leadmill and Octagon Centre also put on regular gigs.
Health & wellbeing
There are no excuses to be lazy here! Sheffield has several climbing centres, including the world’s biggest bouldering wall at Climbing Works. Other impressive and unbeatable accolades include the fact that the city is home to the UK’s deepest diving pool, and there’s also an Olympic sized swimming pool for swimmers to do more than just splash around. Or, at Ice Sheffield, try your hand at ice skating and look really… cool!
One third of Sheffield is within the Peak District National Park, which is perfect for hill walking and rock-climbing enthusiasts who want to get their kicks from the great outdoors. If you walk or cycle, you might be keen to know that you’ll probably leave university in the best shape of your life – Sheffield isn’t exactly famous for being flat, so all those hills will really put your fitness to the test!
Finally, you’ll find an array of fitness facilities across the city, including plenty of gyms near to your student flats in Sheffield.
Sheffield is a super city, and so it has Supertrams! Serving both universities and the college, these are a fun method of getting around the city (until the novelty wears off, at least!).
Sheffield is also notoriously cheap when it comes to public transport, which will come in highly handy whilst you live out your student days. For a price that’s cheap as chips, you can go here, there and everywhere (on the bus network, at least!) – and you can’t really say fairer than that.
After a big night out, you can use taxis from the city’s reliable network or your favourite taxi app – you’ll never struggle to get from A to B!
