    Hi guys!I’m coming to Sheffield to do my post-graduate degree and wanted to get some advice on where to live from all of you guys that know the area inside out. I’m looking for an area that’s not too ‘fresher-y’ and would ideally like to head towards the areas with majority 2nd and 3rd years living there (bit quieter, less rowdy, etc). Any advice you guys could give would be awesome!
    Thanks,Tony

    Crookesmoor, Crookes and Broomhill. Within the City such as near West Street and Portobello are also good options though tend more towards internationals.

    Anywhere near West Street is awful if you want quiet, Broomhill is decent although it's quite a trek to get there and back. Allen Court and that area is pretty decent but it's literally an uphill battle to get to uni

    Thanks guys. So I guess to narrow this down a bit.... Out of Crookesmoor, Crookes, Broomhill, West Street and Portobello- where am I LEAST likely to get woken up at 2am by a pack of gammoned students stumbling down the road signing the Baywatch theme at the top of their lungs?

    Cheers

    Hi Tony,
    We find many of our 2nd and 3rd years live in the places that have already been mentioned in this thread - Crookes, Crookesmoor, Broomhill, Hunters Bar, Ecclesall and the City Centre.

    As a University, we have our own service called propertywithUS that helps advise students on rental property within the private sector. We maintain a private sector registration scheme of private flats and houses for rent, and all the properties we advertise as available to let to students have to comply with out standards.

    There's also a message board, so you can find other University students looking for, or advertising rooms: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/propertywithus .

    Hope that helps!

    If you want sites that are not 'fresher-ish', there are some private apartments along West Street that are more catered to working adults and 2nd year and 3rd year students.

    Some private apartments are in buildings like:

    Royal Plaza
    Portland Towers
    Smithfield
    Huttons Buildings

    These apartments are located in the West Street area, which is convenient if you want to do groceries or head to city centre for administrative matters. There is a Tesco Metro that opens till midnight along West Street, which has a wider range of goods than Tesco Express. Furthermore, there are several takeaways of different varieties (Chinese, kebabs, etc)
