A guide to Sheffield for students

Welcome to our guide to Sheffield — an introduction to our friendly, green and creative city. Learn about our favourite things to see and do and find out why 60,000 students are proud to call this amazing city home.

The great thing about studying in Sheffield is that the city is geared towards you. From the shops to the student bars and everything in between, you'll find something for you.

We're the UK's fifth largest city, but 60% of Sheffield is made up of green spaces like parks, gardens and countryside. There's a ton of places to relax in, or you can walk, run, cycle, climb and swim in the nearby Peak District National Park.

Plus, you can immerse yourself in Sheffield's underground art, music and culture scenes.
We have iconic gig venues, the UK's largest community of artists and designers outside London, and a calendar of major festivals covering everything from food to film.
