Need Accommodation In Sheffield? These are Sheffield’s Top 5 Student Halls!
For many, a huge part of the experience of going to university is moving away from home. Away from home and into student halls. The opportunity to live independently, to meet new people. It’s a fantastic experience, though not for everyone, with different halls catering to different needs.
Sheffield has a huge range of student accommodation with many located centrally and close to tram and bus links between The Sheffield College’s campuses. So as not to completely over-face you, here are our top 5!
A five minute walk from us here at our City Campus, the tram stop to get to our Hillsborough Campus and the train station, Truro Works is a former cutlery factory comprised of a series of furnished study rooms, bedsits and self-contained flats. Large communal areas and regular social events in the common room provide a community atmosphere.
The city centre is also just five minutes the other way with a pub, gym and supermarket all on your doorstep.
Best known as the one with the Jarvis Cocker poem on the side, The Forge is home to over 1000 students in a series of flats for between three and six people (each with en-suite). Just off London Road, close to the ever popular Ecclesall Road and still just 10 minutes from the city centre, a multitude of bars, restaurants and supermarkets are all within walking distance.
As with anywhere of its size and large social spaces (with gym, pool table, table tennis), The Forge is geared more towards the outgoing and sociable.
The Anvil, in contrast, is one of Sheffield’s quieter student halls. Located in the forefront of our City Campus and, again, just a five minute walk to the tram stop to get to our Hillsborough Campus, you get to enjoy the rush of the city in a more tranquil location – perfect for studying!
160 beds, in flat sizes of three, five and six bedrooms sit in the shadow of Bramall Lane, home to Sheffield United, each of which has an en-suite and shared kitchen. However, if you prefer, there are also 22 studios available.
Right opposite one of Sheffield’s up-and-coming breweries, The Trigon is a modern mix of purpose-built flats of three to six bedrooms. As with the above, each room comes with en-suite and a shared kitchen.
Just round the corner from Truro Works, The Trigon is also within a stone’s throw of our City Campus and transport links to Hillsborough Campus, as well as being serviced by a live music pub, The Leadmill, supermarkets and a gym.
If you thought the others were close to us, the brand new Laycock Studios could be the closest of the lot. Less than a minute from the train station and tram stop to our Hillsborough Campus, and just a bit further walking to our City Campus, the new luxury studios have been decked out with a stylish interior and an on-site gym and quiet study room to keep you busy.
These have literally just been built and the price is per room, not per person sharing – worth bearing in mind!
