A safe, friendly and affordable home
Sheffield is a safe and friendly multicultural city. This was proven when the UK Peace Index ranked Sheffield as England’s safest major city in its latest study. The cost of living in Sheffield is low compared to other student cities in the
UK. Accommodation, travel and entertainment are all available at affordable prices. Our students are valued as a part of the city’s vibrant community which is home to more than 60,000 students.

The ideal location for student life
Sheffield is the fourth largest city in England and is just over two hours by train from London. It is one of the UK’s most popular places for students to go to university. Sheffield is large
enough to offer a great range of restaurants, shopping, theatre, cinemas, bars and culture; yet small enough to find your way around quickly and feel part of the community.

With so many students in the area, there is always someone to talk to, but if you’re looking for more support the Students’ Union can provide help and advice on many different topics. This is also the social hub of the University, voted Best Students’ Union in the UK for the past three years (Whatuni Student Choice Awards, 2019).
