Here is everything you need to know about the University of Sheffield.
First off, the basics:
- The University of Sheffield was founded in 1828.
- The university has four campuses: Sheffield, Western Bank, St George’s, and Ranmoor/Endcliffe.
- Student halls of residence include Jessop West, The Stack, and Sheffield Hallam University.
The University of Sheffield has been around for almost 200 years, earning a reputation for great work in science, engineering and technology. In recent years, Sheffield has branched out into areas including humanities, social sciences, and health sciences.
Sheffield is home to a diverse student body, with students from over 140 different countries.
But what about the nightlife? Fear not, Sheffield’s got you covered there, too! Whether you’re in the mood for a pint at the Devonshire Cat or a night of dancing at Corporation, Sheffield’s got plenty of options for a wild night out.
If you prefer something more low-key, the Kelham Island Museum or the Winter Gardens could be for you.
The University of Sheffield has produced some pretty impressive graduates over the years, including former Home Secretary David Blunkett, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kostya Novoselov, and our very own Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill. Famous faces such as Eddie Izzard, Dan Walker, and novelist Hilary Mantel also studied there.
