Staying at Central Place
You’ll never be far from your friends, because Central Place is a student village complex made up of eight houses. Each house offers a mix of private bedrooms (with either a shared or an ensuite bathroom) where you share kitchen facilities and a communal area with 4-5 other students and fully self-contained studios were you don’t have to share at all. There are also some two-bed apartments, where you share with one other student.
Each building has its own unique benefits. If you want to have breakfast al fresco on your own balcony, choose Huntsman House. If you like the idea of a roof garden, Mary Page House is the one for you. Choose Bolsover House to lounge in the beautiful planted courtyard, or Mellor House for a modern building with sleek, stylish interiors and balconies with views of Sheffield. Step back in time in Solly House, where you can admire the stunning period features of this refurbished cutlery factory.
