Welcome to Sheffield
More than 50,000 students live in Sheffield. That's almost 1 in 10 people here. It's safe, green, cheap, independent, lively and creative. We think it's the best place in the UK to be a student.
Although it's the UK's fifth largest city, the friendliness of the people makes Sheffield feel like a big village. In fact, it was recently voted the happiest city in the UK. So it's no wonder so many students fall in love with the place and stay on here after they graduate.
On these pages you can discover some of the places that make Sheffield great.
