A remarkable place to live

Sheffield is a major student city with a strong sense of community. It’s vibrant, diverse and surrounded by some of the most breathtaking countryside in the UK. We’re not surprised that so many of our students move here and fall in love with Sheffield. They discover a forward-thinking city that’s safe, affordable and easy to explore. Our extraordinary city is the perfect setting for groundbreaking collaborations. Although it’s world-famous for precision engineering, creative and digital industries account for almost two fifths of the region’s jobs. Healthcare technology is another growth sector. Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is the UK’s largest NHS foundation trust. Our close links with the city make innovation and progression possible. Sheffield has been called the UK’s greenest city; there are 50 public parks and 170 woodlands within the city boundary. As England’s fourth-largest city, it has the wealth of facilities you’d expect to find in a major city, yet more than a third of Sheffield lies inside the Peak District National Park. Sheffield is geographically diverse, nestled in a natural amphitheatre created by seven hills, and fed by five rivers. This diversity has given rise to an exceptional range of activities available, from climbing, mountain biking, road cycling, running, walking - we’ve got some of the best in the world. The city contains an abundance of entertainment and cultural activities including award-winning theatres, museums and galleries, a variety of clubs and live music venues, and a range of spectator and participation sports. With a thriving cultural industries quarter and a range of city-wide events throughout the year, there is something on offer to suit everyone’s taste and interests. Located in the centre of the UK, at the heart of an excellent transport network, the M1 and M62 are within easy reach, there are 5 international airports within 65 miles and a bustling railway station offers access to every corner of the UK, and beyond. The main University campus lies on the western edge of the city centre and is easy to get to by car, bus and tram.
