Excellent place to study. Location of the University and accommodation is in the safest more affluent areas of Sheffield, and only a short walk away from the bars/clubs of West Street and the city centre. The tram you can take from the university takes you straight to one of the biggest shopping centres in the country! North of England is always better value for money too!

The university is in a great location. Central to Sheffield City Centre if you are based at the main campus and just off of Eccy Road (one is the biggest, most student based roads in Sheffield) if at collegiate. Sheffield is a very student orientated city with plenty places of interest and many cool bars and resteraunts to add to your to do list whilst here!

The city is incredible! So much to do and experience for cheap prices! Night outs occur every night with a student night appearing at every club with often £1 drinks! The food has many places to eat if you’re looking for something on your door step one eccessal road or more into the city centre but if you’re wanting to venture out and do some shopping as well there are many food venues at meadow hall. With the peaks on your doorstep too there are several things to do and boredom is never a thing! Hop on a bus for a student rate and head over to the peaks to explore the country side. Or, if the city is more your thing then the city centre has amazing things to do with even Leeds a train ride away costing no more than £5!

Very good night life, and great for food and shopping, uni/ college are in great locations, very central to everything in Sheffield, easy to access everything you would need. Also very good public transport, trams are regular and on time, there are always loads of things to do and events happening in the city centre, and it is great value for money.

The great thing about Sheffield is that it is a major city and therefore you have access to all things such as night life, good food and social events that you can find in London, but for half the price! It’s so cheap here I don’t think I could live anywhere else

I’ve had to pick Sheffield as the town I actually live in is not on here :(. But Sheffield is a decent place and has a good nightlife but tends to be quite expensive which is what you expect from a city. It is quite young a city as there are a lot of students around from the 2 universities. Some great places to eat like cosmos which is an all you can eat buffet and it is soooo good!

Great city with plenty to do! The city is not too big and there's a nice community feel to the place. Good nightlife, beautiful surrounding areas (Peak District) and great people!

Whether it's a night out that won't ruin your wallet's chances of survival, the crisp and quiet air of the peak district being just a short bus ride away or if you're just a little bit edgy, Sheffield has something for you. Both Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield are known for their respective charms and qualities, but the city itself is what'll mold you and your time here. The nightlife is decent, not Leeds level, but it'll do! With meadowhall just a bus or a tram away, all your shopping needs are fulfilled, with a newly regenerated moor being worked on to bring even more of your favourite high street amenities to the city centre. Whilst some look at Sheffield as a diet version of other larger cities, you'll have to immerse yourself within the friendly atmosphere and really explore to find the lowkey hidden gems that you came for.

Sheffield is one of the best student cities in the UK. With it’s diversity in cultures, people, and languages it’s very difficult for a student not to fit in. Many people know Sheffield for being extremely friendly with fantastic night life. There are many public transport systems that take you directly to places of interest, such as the town centre, Peace Gardens, Meadowhall etc. Many things are also in walking distance too so accessing these places is not challenging. The list of things to do in Sheffield is endless so it’s the perfect city for people who are coming to Shefield to get the full “student experience”.

Sheffield is the perfect location to study. Everything is right on your doorstep that could possibly need. Moor market has just been updated with a cinema, eating places and a huge Primark. Meadowhall shopping centre is just a few minutes on the train at less than £3 for a return too. There are loads of nightclubs and every night there is somewhere to go with drinks costing from £1. Sheffield is also just a really nice looking city with lots of green spaces to sit in the sunshine. I honestly can't think of anything it's missing!

The location is brilliant. People think Sheffield is a big city that is hard to get around but everything you need is within a 2 mile radius. Plenty of nightclubs, bars and music venues to suit everyone. Lots of supermarkets and takeaways nearby to get food. Transport links to bramall lane, the o2, the lead mill etc mean you can get around easily and always find something to do. Mostly good value for money as most things are reasonably priced.

The location of this university is fantastic. I believe the city is not too small but not too big. It has a great central area of shops. Fantastic areas of bars. The bars have a variety of different types so there something for everyone. The transport links are fantastic and everywhere is well connected.

It's such a great location to go to uni - right next to the peak district, loads of places round here to live so whatever your price range you'll find somewhere. West Street is a great base for a night out and the two universities are quite near each other so you can live with mates from the other uni.

Great city. A very diverse nightlife too. From chain clubs, to independant cocktail bars, to the more niche speakeasy. Theres alot of activism and politics in this city, as well as alot of creativity. Its definitely a little different to your average northern city, and alot hillier and cheaper.

Sheffield is an amazing place. The perfect mix of nature and the city. There are loads of bars, clubs for the night and then there are loads of parks and shops and things to go to during the day as well as pubs to go for lunch. Smoke BBQ and cosmos are great restaurants in the city centre. The transport is so good as well as it is a short tram ride to get to Meadowhall. It also only costs £4 for a day tram ride all over Sheffield.

Sheffield offers great nights out, in the form of SU nights at University of Sheffield, the Harley, and the infamous Beirkeller. An evening out for great food would be peddlers markets, a monthly occurrence of great local food stalls and live music in and edgy warehouse setting. Sheffield also has lots to offer in the outdoor department with the peaks on its doorstep and it being well know for it rock climbing both inside and out.
