  1. General information

    Sheffield is a city with a lot of history industry, but its educational one is a rather long one, too. We’ll skip ahead for you with what you need to know – despite having roots in the 1800s and being a polytechnic in the mid-20th century, Sheffield Hallam became the institution we know and love today in 1992 when it was granted full University status.

    As a public university in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Sheffield Hallam University – or SHU for short – is a massive University with over 33,000 students. Over 4000 of these are international, and so the ethos really is super diverse.

    There are two campuses at the University, the City Campus at the heart of the exciting city centre, and the Collegiate Campus, just a couple of miles down the road. The University is divided into four facilities overall and there are 30 research centres.

    Teaching quality is excellent as are the employment opportunities after graduation. The University has many links both locally and internationally, so it’s possible to really spread your wings.

    There is a lot of scope for success and an incredible student experience in Sheffield, and you’ll be encouraged at every step of the way to be at your best. At our Sheffield Hallam University accommodation you will find yourself immersed in student culture and all that it has to offer – both work and play!

  2. The campus

    There are two campuses at Sheffield Hallam; the Collegiate Campus and the City Campus. Our Sheffield Hallam University accommodation is suitable for both. City Campus is located in the epicentre of the city centre as the name suggests, and it’s just two minutes’ walk from Sheffield train station. The Collegiate Campus on the other hand is just a short walk at 20 minute away. Each has everything you might imagine to help out with your studies, including libraries, great facilities and some peaceful places to study.

    If you’re a sport’s fan, it’s time to rejoice. Sheffield was the UK’s first National City of Sport, and so as a result, they naturally take things very seriously in this area. There are world class facilities, 44 sports club (and counting!), and plenty of social sessions and fitness classes if you don’t fancy competing. Anyone and everyone can take part, and it really will do wonders for all areas of your life, not just your health.

    When you join, you’re automatically made a member of the Student Union. You’ll be able to socialise there, grab a bite to eat, or even join a club or society. It doesn’t stop there – if you need advice, representation or you just fancy giving something back, they’ll be able to help with everything you might need. 

    When you stay at our Sheffield Hallam accommodation, you’re literally centrally located to everything. Whether you want to explore the city or be able to spend more time on campus, it’s all possible thanks to our student accommodation.

    Sheffield Hallam University has an absolute multitude of courses available to all of its students, and you’ll be bound to find something which will take you on to incredible things.

    The undergraduate experience is a fulfilling one – with so many students around you at the UK’s fourth largest University, you’ll find many like-minded students to share in your achievements and encourage one another into the realms of success.

    Of course, it won’t only be your peers who offer you support. The expert teaching staff are on hand to ensure you get the highest quality education, and thanks to fantastic links to industry, you’ll gain tangible experience in the world of work as well.

    Of course, your Sheffield Hallam accommodation with us here at Liberty Living will also be equally supportive, thanks to great teams at the residences in addition to the perfect study room environment.

  4. Postgraduate study

    There are over 7000 postgraduates who’ve made the excellent choice to further their education and increase their employment prospects at Sheffield Hallam University. You can choose from almost 200 postgraduate courses across 34 subject areas, so you’re bound to find the right one to keep you focused.

    Taught courses combine lectures and tutorials with project work, and they’re incredibly flexible. What’s more, Sheffield Hallam has tutors and academics recognised as offering an outstanding contribution to your overall learning experience. If you want to go down the research route, a large majority of their research is of international quality – which means you’ll be getting involved with some seriously interesting work.

    Thanks to strong links with industry, there will be many opportunities for ‘real-world’ work experience. Finding a job is somewhat easier once you’ve got a postgraduate degree from Hallam under your belt.

    The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.

    What does being a member of the codes mean?

    • Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
    • Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
