Sheffield Postgraduate Accommodation
There’s no shortage of postgraduate accommodation in the Sheffield area, but not all student accommodation was created equally. When you’re studying for a masters or working on a PhD, your house or flat will probably be where you spend a good portion of your time. With everything else to worry about and do, more so than as an undergrad, you need your accommodation to be somewhere you can really feel comfortable.
At Omnia Space we have a wide selection of suitable postgraduate accommodation for students at the University of Sheffield or Sheffield Hallam University. Our accommodation is spread throughout the city and each property offers something a little bit different.
Sheffield’s Student Property Transport Links
Because Sheffield’s an easy city to get around, students live all across the city. For anyone who wants to escape the city centre, The Park student properties are just up the hill on the other side of Sheffield station to Sheffield Hallam University. With a free shuttle bus running hourly, this accommodation is popular with students from both Sheffield Hallam and the University of Sheffield.
Elsewhere in the city, Sheffield Supertram has stops at both universities, the city centre, and big venues like the Arena and Meadowhall. City centre buses are extremely regular and reliable too, and are really cheap with a student ID. If you prefer to do so, walking and cycling around the city is easy too and there are many green spaces to enjoy; Sheffield is the greenest city in the country.
Sport and Entertainment in Sheffield
Sheffield became the first UK City of Sport in 1995 so there’s plenty happening, including 3 climbing centres, an Olympic-size swimming pool, and the world’s deepest diving pool. There’s also ice hockey, basketball and two football teams: Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United. Then, on top of that, there’s Rugby League, Ice Sheffield, and the world’s biggest bouldering wall at The Climbing Works. And finally, as if that wasn’t enough, to the west of Sheffield is the Peak District, which is a stunning area for hill walking, cycling, and rock climbing.
Nights out in Sheffield often start on West Street, where you’ll also find some of our student properties, and progress from bar to bar towards one of Sheffield’s many student focused night clubs. If that’s not your thing though, you’ll quickly find out that Sheffield is home to some of the best pubs around. Many of these are in the city centre, but others can be found down in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield – near to our Bento properties, Holman House, and Princess House.
Sheffield’s reputation for great music and clubs is well deserved. Sheffield has more than 30 cinema screens, 2 theatres (the Crucible and Lyceum), and 2 big concert venues (Motorpoint Arena and City Hall). There are also many other venues regularly putting on gigs including The Leadmill, the O2 Academy and The Octagon Centre.
