Why Study Here

Sheffield combines a bustling student city with access to the vast open countryside of the Peak District. It's green, lively, independent, safe, inexpensive and creative. Sheffield Hallam offers plenty of outstanding courses, and you'll be studying in Grade II listed buildings as well as brand new facilities. Although it's the UK's fifth largest city, Sheffield feels like a big village. Many students fall in love with it and choose to start their careers here after they graduate. The university is proud to be LGBT friendly and home to students from 125 countries around the world. It is placed in the top 30 universities in the country for student satisfaction and nearly 50 of the University's courses achieved an overall satisfaction of more than 90%, with 10 courses securing 100%.


The nightlife in Sheffield is really varied, with many bars and clubs in the popular West Street district playing all kinds of music. Indie, rock, motown, 60s beats, drum and bass - just to name a few. And because students are such an important part of the local economy, almost all of the city's bars, cinemas and restaurants offer a student discount, making your money go further.

Inside your halls you'll make lifelong friends and memories. From spontaneous parties to movie nights, it's where some of your best university moments will happen. Sheffield Hallam have over 20 safe and secure halls of residence to suit all budgets and tastes, catering for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. All the halls are in popular student areas near our campuses. You're never more than a 30-minute walk from your lectures - and in most halls it's less than 10. The university offers private sector housing for postgraduates, whether this is a flat in the city centre or a shared house.


City Campus is right in the centre of Sheffield, just a few minutes' walk from the train station, and is surrounded by shops, cafes and pubs. Just a 20-minute walk away is Collegiate Campus which mixes some of Sheffield's best bars, markets and restaurants with stunning parks for studying in the sunshine.

Clubs and societies

There are over 100 student-run societies covering everything from rock music to Harry Potter, campaigning, scuba diving and cheerleading. Whatever your interests, there will be something for you - and if not we'll help you start your own.

Welcome week

Your first two weeks are where it all begins. Fourteen days and nights to get to know your university, your students' union and student life in Sheffield.

The Sheffield Hallam university campuses are very nice. As I’m based at collegiate I can only really comment on the one but the time I have spent at city campus it also seems very nice. Collegiate campus has an amazing range facilities perfect for the many course they offer there from multiple lecture halls to seminar and computer room to science labs there’s no lack of appropriate facilities. I currently study sports science and very much enjoy it. The overall course content has been good and for first year the level at which we are working at seems appropriate and fair. The careers service in my opinion is amazing. Consistently throughout the year they are always emailing with relevant job and work experience/placement opportunities that you can apply for making it very easy for these opportunities to be sourced.


Perfect university to provide a community feel, great food outlets and support services on site, the lecturers running the International Tourism Management course are excellent in terms of teaching style and resources provided... fun and interesting course too! Sheffield itself is perfect for student life, has easy and accessible transport links and offers lots of gardens, parks and the Peaks!
