The University

Sheffield Hallam University first opened its doors in 1843 as the Sheffield School of Design, educating the country’s creative minds. Nowadays, it is a popular choice for all students up to PhD level. In 2020, The Times named it the University of the Year for Teaching Quality based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from students. The uni also supports the city at large, bringing in more than £400 million each year for the local economy.

As well as the high quality of teaching, Sheffield Hallam is also known for its diverse community. There are over 4,500 staff and 300,000 students here from all kinds of backgrounds. Sheffield Hallam is composed of three faculties: Business, Technology and Engineering, Social Sciences and Arts and Health, and Wellbeing and Life Sciences, each delivering a world-class education to every single one of its students. And just like Sheffield Hallam University, Novel Student accommodation brings together people from all backgrounds to provide the very best kind of uni experience.

Global opportunities at Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam University is connected to over 100 partners across the globe, providing all kinds of opportunities for networking and progressing in your career. The university has carefully chosen each one to ensure they share similar values. For example, Sheffield Hallam has close links with La Trobe University in Australia going back almost a decade. This relationship has resulted in both institutions developing the unique International Hospitality and Tourism Management degree, ideal for students looking to see the world. Additionally, these international ties have supported a co-funded scheme for over 20 projects, helped create an exclusive network for PhD students, and secured external funding for world-class dementia research.

Other countries also have strong connections with Sheffield Hallam, such as China, Germany, and more. These global connections provide students with the opportunity to spend time in a country on an exchange trip or even spend a year abroad. Residents at Sheffield Hallam University accommodation are likely to experience the benefits of multiple cultures as soon as their tenancy begins, helping them decide which country they might want to visit.

Living in Sheffield

Our Sheffield Hallam University Accommodation is based within walking distance of the city’s main amenities. You’ll find a lot of parks and sports facilities nearby as well as great transport links to take you from our Hillside House student accommodation to all over Sheffield and nearby areas such as the Peak District. This means easy access to Sheffield’s incredible nightlife scene, from glam cocktail bars like Gatsby to the countless student clubs on the West Street strip and live music venues such as The Leadmill.

There’s an amazing range of places to eat out too, such as Mediterranean restaurant Ego, the city’s best pizza at Proove and fine dining at Rafters, for those special occasions. These are all easy to get to from our Novel Sheffield Hallam Uni accommodation, which is also near to the university campus and plenty of great shops and supermarkets.

At our halls of residence, we believe it’s important to choose a room that suits your needs, so you can choose from our sociable shared flats or one of our studio apartments.
