Student Accommodation in Sheffield
If you're looking for student accommodation in Sheffield, you aren’t short of options. Whether you’re looking for a student pad for yourself, a big group, or just a few mates, there's plenty of student houses available in the city.
If you're in search of a home in the city centre, you’ll have to start looking upwards; there are tonnes of new high-rise residential buildings dotted around the Sheffield skyline.

Boasting features like exposed brick walls and open loft spaces, student properties in Kelham are a tad more expensive, (but are worth showing off to your course mates).
Looking to splash out on socialising, rather than student living? Areas like Ecclesall Road, Sharrow and Crookesmoor feature cheaper student homes, with a range of 3 bedroom terraced houses all the way through to larger 10+ bedroom houses to rent. These areas are two student hubs, famed for student accommodation in Sheffield.

Being a Student in Sheffield
With over 60,000 students, it's fair to say that Sheffield is a thriving place for student living. Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield attract students to Sheffield every year, but what else makes Sheffield one of the most popular cities in the UK for Students?
Sheffield is the greenest city in England, with a third of the city being in the Peak District, meaning your accommodation will not be far from both the buzz of the city and the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.
Sheffield has it all; cocktail bars lining Ecclesall Road, gin bars on Abbeydale Road, and independent real ale pubs populating Kelham Island. It's safe to say it's difficult to find a dry corner in Sheffield.
From Pulp to the Artic Monkeys, it's no wonder that Sheffield is recognised for its music scene. There are 70+ gig venues across the city, and one of these venues, the Leadmill, is consistently voted the Best Live Music Venue by NME readers.
Sheffield also boasts a diverse range of museums and entertainment venues, including the Crucible, the world famous home of snooker. The city has an envious festival calendar, which covers food, comedy, film and music festivals such as Tramlines - a city-wide music festival that welcomes 150,000 people to the city.
It's fair to say that Sheffield is also a great place for sports fans. It's proud birthplace of football, with the world's first football club based in the city. The English Institute of Sport is just one of many sporting venues open to the public, and has seen some of the country's Olympic Gold medallists trained here, including Sheffield's own Jessica Ennis-Hill and Boxing World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua.
Although Sheffield is one of the UK's biggest cities, it's infamous for its village feel. Known for its friendly locals, who are devoted to their city, and a roaring independent trade, Sheffield has been dubbed 'The Largest Village in Britain'!
Sheffield Hallam University Accommodation
Sheffield's student accommodation options are diverse. If you're a student at Hallam then you have the advantage of easy access to the city campus from most areas in the city. City centre living is the obvious choice, but comes at a premium. However nearby areas such as Sharrow, Ecclesall Road and Highfield offer more pocket-friendly alternatives.
University of Sheffield Accommodation
The University of Sheffield's student accommodation is mainly based around Broomhill, Crookes and Crookesmoor - just a short walk or bus ride to university.
