UK Life // Where to live in Sheffield

If you are planning on doing your studies in Sheffield, one thing you will need to sort out is accommodation. You will want to live in an area that is close to your university, with easy access to all the shops, cafes, nightclubs, and everything else that goes on in the city. You will also want to live near other students, so you can integrate easily. Luckily, when it comes to student accommodation in Sheffield, there are plenty of options to consider. Read on to discover some of the best places for students to live and why.


When it comes to student accommodation, Sheffield’s main place is Crookesmoor. To say this is an area that is popular with students would be an understatement. If you choose accommodation here, the chances are that you will be close to all your friends. The area has a 24-hour off-licence, which is always convenient, as well as pubs and a café.

Sheffield City Centre

The city centre is a great choice for students for numerous reasons; the main reason being convenience. The central location means you can get to both universities (Sheffield Hallam and the University of Sheffield) with ease, and you will also find the majority of the clubs, bars, restaurants, and shops here too.

Ecclesall Road

If you are looking for the best of both worlds – the student lifestyle and something more relaxing and a bit more lavish – Ecclesall Road is ideal. It boasts a number of cocktail bars and pubs, as well as plenty of different restaurants and fast food places. Plus, if you need to de-stress after a difficult day of studying, you can go and unwind in Endcliffe Park or the Botanical Gardens.

Bramall Lane

You may have heard of Bramall Lane because it is home to Sheffield United Football Club. However, it is also conveniently located, as it is a short walk to the train station and city centre while also being relatively close to both universities. It is a good choice for those who are seeking accommodation that is cheaper than prices in the city.
