As a student studying and living in Sheffield, you can often feel like a speck in the huge population of the city that are students themselves. On the other hand, in and around campus, you will see familiar faces everywhere, as the main university itself is incredibly compact. This is good because it means most places you need/want to go are within walking distance, and if not, regular public transport such as the tram and bus are very efficient. In recent years, Sheffield has been inundated by small local businesses starting from the roots up, such as cafes, organic grocers and bakeries. It promotes a feeling of community with every business supporting each other and providing great services to the people of Sheffield. International cuisine is also coming into the fore, especially with the development of places like Cutlery Works and Kommune Food Hall. Meadowhall shopping centre is a 15 minute tram away from the centre and has a plethora of huge shops and activities, such as Valley Centertainment just a bit further down.
