Sheffield Student Accommodation Terminology Explained

What is the difference between student houses, apartments, flats, and studios? Read on to find out...

Student Housing

Student House is the term generally used for bigger, often detached properties, that are divided up into multiple apartments.  There is usually 1 shared living area including a kitchen, lounge, dining room, maybe even a conservatory, and then multiple individual bedrooms, so these are sometimes known as 'shared houses' or HMOs (House of Multiple Occupancy).  Whilst the living and kitchen areas are shared in a Student House, this often means they are bigger than the ones found in self-contained student properties.

There are plenty of beautiful examples of student houses in the leafy stone-built suburbs of S7 and S11 in Sheffield.  Popular student property areas like Hallam, Sharrow, Broomhill, Crookes, Crookesmoor, Eccleshall Road, Ranmoor - the list goes on!

Student Flats vs Student Apartments

The terms student flats and student apartments can mean the same thing, but a flat is often larger, normally occupying the whole of 1 level of a multi-story student property, whereas apartments are typically smaller and several to 1 storey.

Student apartments and flats are often self-contained, so whilst sometimes small compared with shared student houses, you do at least have your very own kitchen and living area as well as your bedroom, so you're more in control of your personal space.

Student Studios

Student studios or 'studio flats' are typically even smaller than apartments.  Whereas a 1 bedroomed apartment typically has at least a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a living area, a student studio usually has only 2 rooms - a bathroom and an 'all-other' room, which is a bedroom, kitchen, and living area all rolled into one.

Student Studios can be a very cramped place to live for more than a few days at a time.

Bear in mind that before you invite a few friends round, you will need to make your bed, you have no separate bedroom where you can leave your mess or private belongings and close the door!

And larger parties or social events are definitely out in a student studio. Claypenny offers a wide range of cheap student accommodation in Sheffield at only a fractionally higher price per month, so don’t feel the need to include any Sheffield student studios within their portfolio.

Within Sheffield, there is a huge range of different areas with student housing. See our helpful blog post 'best student accommodation areas in Sheffield' to learn more.
