The area

So green, peaceful and safe. Sheffield is lucky enough to have an incredible city life full of music, art and culture, as well as being on the doorstep of the beautiful Peak District and Derbyshire. Our accommodation is an easy commute to the university, and if you don't fancy walking, there are bus stops close to all of our accommodation. 

Our rooms

So quirky and full of character. We have a range of properties, including period buildings that have been refurbished for our students. We have a range of room types to choose from, such as en-suites, standard accommodation and studios. All of our accommodation is a great option if you want a community experience.

Self Catered 

All our rooms are self-catered. This provides flexibility for our students around their studies and social life. They have a choice of when to cook and what to cook.
