The City Centre

Peace GardensThe hub of student life in the city is only five minutes’ walk away from central campus. West Street and the Devonshire Quarter is where you’ll find all the bars, cafes, shops, boutiques, music venues and restaurants that are always popular with our students.

Another five minutes’ walk and you’re in the heart of the city, where pedestrian shopping areas lead to public gardens and squares. Museums, galleries and theatres share these spaces alongside a great selection of bars and cafés, making this a great place to meet up and relax.

A tram ride away from the University is Meadowhall; one of the UK’s largest indoor shopping centres. Over 280 High Street stores line the long boulevards and it’s easy to spend the whole day here. There are loads of fast food outlets, restaurants and cafés, as well as a multi-screen cinema complex.
