You’ll find Aspect 3 student apartments conveniently located to the north of Sheffield city centre and well-placed for you to get to either of the city’s two universities.
With a tram stop just round the corner and great bus routes within the city too, you will be able to get around easily. And Sheffield’s compact city centre also means you can walk to lots of places, including Crookes Valley Park where you can stroll around the large lake or Leopold Square, with its selection of bars and restaurants tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Voted number one in the 2014 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey Sheffield has a reputation for being a friendly and welcoming city. It was recently described in The Guardian as “a joyfully cheap place to live: rent is cheap, beer is cheap, transport is cheap,” so no wonder it’s proving so popular with UK and international students alike.
On the doorstep of Aspect 3 are a range of supermarkets – including a Chinese supermarket – and that all-important cash machine. In just ten minutes’ walk you’ll be heading into the city centre with all its bars, cafés and facilities.
With two prestigious universities, Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam, there’s a wide choice of courses and a buzzing student scene close to Aspect 3. Both universities have active student union bars running a variety of theme nights and playing host to gigs.
If you’re into shopping, Devonshire Street is home to a well-known row of independent shops, with the usual big retail names in both the city centre and nearby Meadowhall (just hop on a tram to get there easily from Aspect 3). Sheffield is also one of the few northern cities to be home to John Lewis.
Sheffield itself has great road and rail links with the M1 running along the edge of the city and direct rail links to London, Leeds and Manchester. You’re also on the doorstep of the Peak District, with its pretty villages and rolling hills – perfect for an afternoon out in the countryside when all your assignments are finished.
