Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam University is one of the largest Universities in the UK. With more than 37,000 students attending its courses, including many international students, Sheffield Hallam is a busy and exciting place to study.

Hallam Uni is situated across two campuses in Sheffield; City Campus and Collegiate Campus. City Campus is the bigger of the two, where you will find the Arundel Building, Surrey Building and many of the university faculties. City Campus is based in the very heart of Sheffield, just a couple of minutes' walk from the train station. Collegiate Campus is smaller than City Campus and is slightly outside of the city centre; this green, leafy area is home to the Collegiate learning Centre, Pearson Builing and more. The two campuses are within easy walking distance of each other and are both near to the two iQ Student Accommodation buildings in the city; iQ Brocco and iQ Steel.

How to get to Sheffield Hallam Uni from iQ Brocco or iQ Steel

Both located in the centre of Sheffield close to an incredible selection of shops, restaurants and nightlife destinations, iQ Brocco and iQ Steel make it easy to reach Sheffield Hallam's City Centre Campus. From iQ Steel, there are a fantastic selection of bus routes that run to the university, including the numbers 52, 70, and 120. Popping to the City Centre in a taxi should take you less than ten minutes and cost approximately a fiver. And if you're walking or cycling, it wont take you long to reach Arundel Gate, the street that runs alonside Sheffield Hallam campus. iQ Brocco is just a few minutes' walk from iQ Steel, so it doesn't take much longer to reach Hallam campus if you're living at iQ Brocco. From iQ Brocco, head down Hollis Croft road to get the the bus from Townhead Street. Again, you' have a large choice of buses to choose between, including the numbers 81, 82, 83, 84, 85 and 88. Amazing! And if you're feeling lazy, a taxi from Brocco will cost about £6 during the day. Again, it's an easy walk or cycle ride from iQ Brocco to the City Centre campus.

If you're heading to the Collegiate Campus of Sheffield Hallam Uni, you'll need to head South West of the city centre. It's still easy to reach the Collegiate Campus from both iQ Steel and iQ Brocco - walking the route will take less than half an hour! A number of the bus routes that run to the City Centre campus carry on to take you to the Collegiate Campus via the Ecclesall Road (again, look out for the 81, 82, 83, 84, 85 and 88.) For lazy days, a taxi should cost you about £6 from either iQ Student Accommodation site. And if you're cycling to either campus, remember that you can keep your bike safe in our free onsite cycle storage at either iQ Brocco or iQ Steel.
