Sheffield uni - accommodation

How far away is the accommodation in Sheffield from the university buildings? Would it be possible to walk from the accommodation to lectures or would you need to cycle or get a bus?

Depends where your accommodation is. Most students stay in Ranmoor/Endcliffe which is a 21 minute walk. Public transport is pretty good in Sheffield so you should be able to catch a bus if you'd rather not walk.

Hi 3rd Year Psychology student here,

It's great to hear you are considering Sheffield as an option for university and looking into accomodation!

As the other response has mentioned how far away from the building you are depends on where you choose to stay. Ranmoor/Endclife are the University of Sheffields' official student halls and most students choose to live here in first year for the socialisation side and ability to meet other people in first year. These halls are about a 20-25 minute walk from the main university buildings; it is all downhill on the way there so its quite a nice easy walk. On the way home it is more uphill so I often got the bus back up. The 120 runs from directly outside the student union to the student halls. The bus costs £1 with a student card so is pretty cheap overall. I often walked down and got the bus back up.

If you would prefer to be closer the university buildings you could have a look at the city accommodation the university offers. I have included the link here:

City accommodation is a lot closer to the University buildings and Sheffield city centre which might be useful if this is something you would prefer. All the city sites are only a 5 minute walk from the students union

I hope this helps! Do you have any further questions about accommodation or Sheffield Uni in general?
