What's going on


Welcome to Sheffield!

Now that it’s September, it’s only a matter of time before it’s time for students to pack up and head to university

Now that it’s September, it’s only a matter of time before it’s time for students to pack up and head to university. If you are returning to Sheffield or heading to the Steel City for the first time as a fresher, there is plenty to do as a student, whether you want to bond with your new flatmates or just fancy some time alone to explore the city, Sheffield is anything but boring.

Hit the shops – From Peddler to Rex, there are plenty of markets which pop-up in Sheffield throughout the year and they are a great way to do some shopping and eating while getting to know some of Yorkshire’s small businesses. 

Grab some cheap (or free) theatre tickets – If you are a fan of the Theatre then Sheffield is the city to be in. With several venues in the city, including The Crucible and Lyceum which are just 5 minutes from the Sellers Wheel accommodation, there is always something going on. Anyone between the ages of 16 and 26 can get tickets for just £5, and English and Drama students can get free show tickets, making it a much more affordable day out for students.

The Peak District is right around the corner – With the beauty of the Peaks on Sheffield’s doorstep, exploring the National Park is a must for any local student. Whether you want to try hiking or just fancy looking around one of the picturesque towns like Bakewell, it is worth the visit. There are several direct buses into the Peaks, several of which have stops near West One accommodation, like Gatecrasher Apartments, in the Moor.

Like to party? – If anywhere is a must-visit Sheffield institution, it’s The Leadmill. It doesn’t matter if you want to go out and party, listen to some live music or some stand-up comedy, the venue has been a creative hub in the city for over 40 years, making it the longest-running live music venue and nightclub in the Steel City.

Can’t decide what’s for dinner? – For foodies, Sheffield’s food halls are a great way to bond with new flatmates or catch up with friends since there is no need to agree on what to eat. Kommune, in the city centre, is located close to several West One accommodations and always has a huge selection from Greek food to burgers to doughnuts.

Visit Sheffield’s quirkier bars – There is no doubt that many students will be spending a lot of time at some of Sheffield’s brilliant pubs this academic year. But, while they may not be as cheap, the city has some brilliant unique bars which make for a great night out when it’s time to treat yourself. Church: Temple of Fun is a 100% vegan bar and restaurant, owned by the frontman of Bring Me The Horizon, Oliver Sykes, with a religious iconography theme or, for a more private drink, Public is a small, table-service cocktail bar in a former public toilet.

Shop out of shipping containers – Sheffield has had a bit of a troubled history with shipping containers, but the original box park can be found in Kelham. With a wealth of independent businesses and restaurants, Steel Yard Kelham is a unique piece of the city which is worth exploring at least once.
