Finding student accommodation near Sheffield Hallam University
Just behind its rival, the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University is the UK’s 11th largest university. Spread across two campuses on either side of Sheffield City Centre, the SHU City Campus can be found overlooking Sheffield railway station welcoming travellers to the city.
As a post-92 university, Sheffield Hallam has developed tremendously in a short space of time. A university proud of its local roots, SHU attracts a lot of students from Sheffield and the surrounding areas in South Yorkshire. However, it also has a rapidly growing international student group, attracted to a strong UK university and a city becoming well known for its fabulous student experience.
Students looking for Sheffield Hallam accommodation are definitely spoilt for choice. With many students spending their first year of study in one of the many contemporary private halls of residence, most students in later years of study are seeking a bit more freedom and somewhere more ‘homely’, opting to live in private student housing.
If you’re after somewhere within a short walk of the SHU City Campus, there’s tonnes of 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom flats available in the City Centre, or if you want somewhere with a few more bedrooms for the besties, there are plenty of student houses located in the nearby suburbs, such as Highfield, Norfolk Park or Ecclesall Road.
Students studying at the Sheffield Hallam Collegiate Campus have an even wider array of student houses to choose from, with popular student areas like Sharrow and Broomhall just streets away. These areas boast slightly larger student houses, catering for groups looking for 4 bedroom, 5 bedroom or even 10 bedroom plus house shares!
Finally, we can’t forget about the most well-known student area in Sheffield: Ecclesall Road. Filled with restaurants, pubs, bars and independently-owned shops, it’s a hipster paradise with student housing aplenty.
