Why Sharrow is Great for Students
Sharrow is a popular location for students based at Sheffield Hallam and is a sought-after location due to its surrounding popular areas Abbeydale Road, London Road, Ecclesall, and the City Centre. Sharrow is fantastic for mixed groups, where students are studying at both Sheffield Hallam City Campus and Collegiate Campus.
Located close to Abbeydale Road, which is one of the most up and coming areas of the city, filled with small independent gift shops, gin bars, craft ale, and tearooms. It is dubbed the 'Antiques Quarter' due to the many treasure troves that line it. If you're heading that way, be sure to visit Abbeydale Picture House too – an old converted cinema and billiard hall – perfect for a game of pool, a pint and a slice of pizza.
Sharrow also boasts the benefit of being as close to Ecclesall Road as it is Abbeydale Road, which means whatever you're looking for, you can find it just a short walk from home. Access to the City Centre via a short trip along London Road is an ideal way to discover a variety of international cuisines from Italian and Turkish to Thai and Japanese restaurants.
Student accommodation in Sharrow is predominately made up of Victorian student houses that have often been transformed into luxury student pads for modern living. Find a wide range of these through UniHomes during the busy letting season!
