Hunter’s Bar and Ecclesall

AccommodationClose to our student accommodation is this thriving and fashionable residential area, with its fantastic mix of independent and high street stores. Ecclesall has some of Sheffield’s very best green spaces with the Botanical Gardens and Endcliffe Park nearby.

Ecclesall Road stretches for nearly 3 miles and is well known for its vast range of restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and shops, including many one-off boutiques and is the place to be seen in Sheffield. Sharrowvale Road is quieter, with more of a village atmosphere, where good local shops, delis and traditional pubs share the tree lined residential streets.


Very close to campus and our accommodation is this busy shopping and residential area. Popular with students and locals alike, Broomhill has an interesting mix of shops, cafes, and bars and is only a short walk away from the Botanical Gardens. This area is well served by frequent buses to the University and city centre.


Ranmoor is one of the most affluent and desirable suburbs in the UK and has its own peaceful and tranquil setting, with tree lined streets, large gardens and grand properties. Considerable numbers of students live close by in our accommodation and it’s conveniently placed for public transport, walking to campus and the local shops in Broomhill.

Crookes and Walkley

These are popular areas for students and for private rental accommodation and are well known in Sheffield for the traditional strong communities formed between the local residents and their students. Victorian and Edwardian properties line the narrow, hilly streets and give this area its own unique character.

The main shopping streets are home to a good selection of food shops and supermarkets, fast food outlets and general stores. There are plenty of cafes and pubs and it is only short walk away from two public parks and the main University campus.
