Student Accommodation Sheffield Hallam

We provide Sheffield Hallam student accommodation for students at Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield and have our own offices located in the Hallam area.

Both the main local universities are located on what is known as the Hallam Ridge - a ridge of hillside that runs out from the city centre towards the Peak District and Snake Pass in the west.  Parts of this ridge rise to over 1000 feet above sea level, giving lofty views over the surrounding city.

Take a video tour of one of our one-bedroom apartments below:

Around 50,000 students come to study at Sheffield every year so student properties in the convenient and relaxing Hallam areas are in high demand. Our accommodation offers considerable variety for the discerning student and is generally a little cheaper than student accommodation in the city centre.

If you want to combine leafy suburbs with an inner-city buzz, and stay near to the Sheffield Hallam Universities and The University of Sheffield, then student housing in Sheffield Hallam is a great choice.

Student Accommodation Sheffield Hallam

Some choose to reside at one of the universities' own student halls - both Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield offer this - but many decide that student hall residences are not for them - too busy, noisy, or simply lacking individuality.

And whilst student halls may be near the universities, this makes them further from the out of hours attractions and restaurants in the city centre or the nightlife of Ecclesall Road

City centre accommodation is not the choice of all either - anyone looking for cheap student accommodation near Sheffield Hallam University would need to rule out this option, and so it is easy to see why many choose the leafy suburbs of Hallam with good access to the Supertram and bus services.

There is a great diversity of bars, restaurants and cafes and proximity to hundreds of other student houses. You can take a tour with this handy video that the University of Sheffield have put together:

We manage more than 50 properties within the Hallam district from 1 bedroom student apartments to 8-bedroom student houses. Search for student property types in Sheffield Hallam on our property listings page or call Claypenny on 0114 266 9900 to avoid disappointment.

Famous for both precision engineering and metalworking, Sheffield is now one of the greenest cities in the country and well situated for most travel needs. An example of this is the Supertram network which is ideal for reaching both main universities, the Don Valley stadium, hospital, and railway stations.

In these challenging times of Covid-19 it is great to see the care that local universities are taking - you can see this below and even apply for a student coronavirus test to put your mind at rest.
