Whether you choose a private room or a studio at Brass Founders, utilities and contents insurance are included in your rent. You’re a 15-minute walk from Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield, and a two-minute walk from the nearest bus stop. If you’re keen to cut down on costs, keep a bike in the safe storage instead. On weekends, seek the tropical colour of the Sheffield Winter Garden greenhouses; or explore the Devonshire Quarter’s indie cafés and boutiques.
When you get home, hang your coat up in the mirrored wardrobe, then curl up for a snooze on your small double bed or head to the kitchen for something to eat. Later, retrieve your books from the under-bed storage and use the 250 MB broadband to research a paper at your study desk. The property’s quiet study zone is the perfect place for brainstorming a group assignment, while the on-site gym allows you to clear your head with a session on the treadmill when you’re done.
After your workout, throw your clothes into the washer/ dryer before showering in your ensuite bathroom. In summer, a large garden awaits with all-weather ping-pong tables and barbecue grills; while the entertainment area is perfect for cosy winter nights in. Challenge your friends to a game of pool, or watch a series on the large TV. On Fridays, celebrate the weekend with American-style burgers and fried chicken at favourite local eatery Lucky Fox, then head home for movies in the cinema room.
