Sheffield Hallam University is right in the middle of Sheffield City Centre, with shops, bars and restaurants just 5 mins walk away. The train station and bus/coach station are also only a 5 minute walk from City campus, so if you fancy travelling it’s really is to get around!
We have got Meadowhall a 10 mins tram/train journey away with lots of brand name shops and entertainment facilities.
We’re also only a 20 minute bus ride from the Peak District National Park, great for walking, climbing, mountain biking.
Sheffield is a student city
Sheffield is a huge student city. Sheffield’s population is 500,000 people and of that there are 35,000 students at Sheffield Hallam University and 25,000 students at the University of Sheffield. Add the college students of Sheffield and approximately 100,000 people in Sheffield’s population are students! This means the city is really geared towards students, it is a warm welcoming city and because of our large study population it has social opportunities, student events, and discounts throughout the year.
Take a look at the videos on the right for insight from our students about being a student in Sheffield and what opportunities there are available to you outside of study.
