Learn in the best facilities
You work with equipment and facilities as good as – or better – than those you'll find in industry.
Thanks to our partnership with Sony, we have the largest PlayStation teaching lab in the world, where computing students create games on PlayStation 4 development kits.
Engineering students use a flight simulator to inform their aircraft designs. And our healthcare students practise treating cancer patients in a 3D virtual radiotherapy room.
This hands-on experience means you will be fully prepared with the practical skills employers are looking for.
Work in new spaces
We’re continually investing in innovative, flexible and sustainable spaces that enhance your Sheffield Hallam experience.
In 2014 we opened the new Heart of the Campus building – a £27m complex at Collegiate Campus with state-of-the-art teaching spaces and flexible learning and study areas. The building was awarded the 2015 RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Yorkshire Award and the 2014 Yorkshire Region Award for Structural Excellence.
In 2015 we invested £6m in a Maths Hub and a new home for the internationally renowned Materials and Engineering Research Institute.
In 2016, we opened our landmark £30m building on Charles Street in the city centre, featuring specialist facilities for our Sheffield Institute of Education.
We also opened a new £9m home for Sheffield Institute of Arts in 2016 in one of the city centre’s most iconic buildings, the former Head Post Office.
Future developments include a new £14m Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, which is set to become the most advanced research and development centre for physical activity in the world.
We are proud of our long-standing relationship with Sheffield Hallam. As a select PlayStation®First partner we offer unique access to PlayStation® technology and game production support so that students acquire industry relevant skills.
