Our Heritage Estate
From the stunning Firth Hall and Rotunda buildings on Western Bank, through to an original sewer gas lamp on Leavygreave Road, the University of Sheffield is proud to take care of almost 40 listed structures and buildings within its estate.
Over the last four years alone, we have spent more than £56 million on preserving and upgrading our heritage buildings, perhaps most notably the full refurbishment of the landmark Arts Tower, completed last year.
Earlier investments include the former Jessop Victorian Hospital, which has been painstakingly refurbished to provide an ideal home for our music department, whilst the imposing St George’s Church now houses lecture theatres, seminar rooms and student accommodation.
Next to benefit from major investment is the grade II listed Mappin Building which will be extensively refurbished as part of a £153 million investment in our engineering estate over the next decade.
