Shopping in the city

Shopping in the city

We asked our students where they go for a bit of retail therapy in Sheffield and came back with a list of the best places to shop in the city.


We're home to one of the biggest shopping malls in Europe. From Primark and H&M to Hugo Boss and Kurt Geiger, Meadowhall has all the big brands and designers you'd possibly need. Plus, there are regular student lock-ins throughout the year, where you can get discounts on all your purchases.

Division Street

A student hotspot for independent and vintage shopping, Division Street is right in the middle of Sheffield city centre. Try Vulgar and Freshman's for vintage clothing and MoonKo for arty makes from small business owners and creatives.

Ecclesall Road

Right at the foot of our Collegiate Campus, Ecclesall Road is one of Sheffield's biggest student areas. There are lots of bars, cafés and restaurants, and an array of independent boutiques and charity shops to explore too. Keep an eye out for Cocoa Wonderland, a handmade chocolate shop and café.

High street shopping around Fargate

Our city campus is a two-minute walk from Sheffield's high street area, so you're never too far from some sweet retail therapy. We've got high street brands like Topshop, River Island and Paperchase, coffee shops and cafés, and department stores like M&S and John Lewis, so there's plenty to browse between lectures.

The Moor

This shopping and leisure space in the city centre has undergone big renovations to welcome fresh, new spaces including a cinema, gym, food market and a number of big brand shops.
