Unfortunately after living in Sheffield for about a week, the simple but horrifying error of your decision to move to this city will reveal itself.

Although Sheffield is a large city, the public transport system means getting about is as easy as maxing out your overdraft is. With a large train station near the city centre, a tram system and extensive bus routes catering for both universities, if you can be bothered going to your 9 o’clock lectures then you can easily roll out of bed 10 minutes before and still get there with plenty of time to spare.

Whether you prefer to sip a quiet pint in a dusty pub or rave until the early hours, Sheffield’s nightlife can offer something for pretty much every taste. Both Uni and Hallam host different club nights most days of the week. These cater for a variety of musical tastes and budgets, such as Sheffield Student’s Union’s Tuesday Club which plays drum & bass, or Hallam’s Pounded, which is on a Monday and will cost you just (you guessed it) a pound to get in - with many drinks also available for a quid.
Leaving the unis behind, Ecclesall Road is a student favourite. With a lot of Hallam’s accommodation close by, the street features a wide variety of bars and pub
