There is much to do such as sport or societies, however most people tend to still socialise at night in the city itself. The university itself has lots of comfortable cafes and spaces to sit if you have brought your own lunch or just chilling with friends making it relaxing and inviting .×

It works out well that you can stay in Sheffield Hallam student housing if you wish to throughout your course. This worked out better for me and a few friends as we got cheap housing which was backed by the uni and we didn't have to pay pointless rent over the summer when we wouldn't be there like you have to do with private housing.×

I feel like we could perhaps have an extra club night on the weekend instead of just one on Wednesday night, but other than that there's a huge range of activities and events to choose from. I personally run a society at Hallam (The Tea Drinking Society) , and the Union are fantastic at helping run events and providing us with the resources we need. Theres always lots going on within the union that caters to all interests and people including fundraising and loads of ways to meet new people. You just have to keep an eye out for them or they are easily miss-able.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
