Location & Surroundings
Sheffield is a thriving student city home to two major universities and over 60,000 students. There’s plenty for you to do whether it’s some retail therapy at Meadowhall, catching the latest film at the ODEON or grabbing 241 pizzas at Bloo 88. Living at The Pinnacles means you’ll only be a 10 minute walk away from the train station, a 10 minute walk to Sheffield Hallam University and 25 minute walk to the University of Sheffield. There’s also a refreshed common room as well as a brand spanking new gym to keep you fit without even having to move off site – plus membership is included in your weekly rent!
If you want a break from city life then jump on a bus and head to the Peak District where you’ll find yourself immersed in beautiful countryside, or if you’re not fancying venturing too far then have a quiet walk in the Botanical Gardens or Endcliffe Park. Also be sure not to miss out on Sheffield’s biggest music event – Tramlines – taking place in July every year!
