Collegiate Crescent campus of SHU is five minutes’ walk from Unite Students The Forge 2, while the city campus is less than a quarter of hour away. If you’re studying at University of Sheffield, you can walk to class in under 20 minutes and central Sheffield is no more than a 10-minute stroll. You won’t really need public transport living here.
Sister to the neighbouring Forge student accommodation, which is one of the largest and most vibrant in Sheffield with over 1,000 residents, this is a slightly smaller, newer property. As a Forge 2 resident, you will have access to all of the larger building’s facilities.
When you’re not hanging out at the common room, playing a game of table football or pool, or working up a sweat in the on-site gym, you can retire to your ensuite bedroom or studio, fully furnished and ready to make your own.
If you opt for an ensuite room rather than a studio, you’ll share a kitchen. Eating with your flatmates at your shared dining table or handy breakfast bar is a great way to get to know them and take a break from the books. You have your own cupboard space but it won’t be a show-stopper if your supplies run low at dinner time. You have a choice of Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Waitrose supermarkets close by.
Other facilities include bike storage, car parking, an on-site laundry and a vending machine. There’s also 24-hour security to keep you safe and maintenance teams on call should you need them.
