Truro Court is the ideal base to pursue your studies at Sheffield Hallam University. Located just five minutes from both the university and the city centre, living with us means you’re right at the heart of everything you’ll need to make the most of your student experience and one of the best value student living Sheffield has to offer.
As the UK’s fifth largest city, Sheffield has a reputation for being a fun, safe and easy-going place to live. Our Sheffield student accommodation is within easy walking distance of tons of exciting places – shops, cafes, pubs, bars, sports facilities, museums and theatres. If you fancy going a little further afield (don’t forget the Peak District is a mere 15 minute’s train ride), it’s easy to get around thanks to cheap and frequent tram, bus and rail services – with Sheffield station just a few minutes’ walk away. Sheffield is also the greenest city in England, with over 200 parks and more trees per head than any other city in Europe.
There is a lively and distinctive night-time scene, and if you’re staying with us you won’t have far to go to let your hair down (and no expensive cab-rides home, either). The legendary Leadmill is just around the corner, and hosts weekly live music and club nights. The nearby O2 Academy is another popular music venue, less than 10 minutes from the residence, while Plug, Code and Corporation all offer cheap drinks and great music.
Closer to home, our uniquely-designed student accommodation in Sheffield offers a wide range of spacious, modern and great value rooms, with all-inclusive bills, free wi-fi, nearby common room and laundry, and 24hr security. Our on-site maintenance staff will quickly sort any issues you have, and our housekeepers make sure the place stays spick-and-span while you’re here. The management office is just next door for post and parcel collection, or if there’s anything you want to come and talk to us about (or just fancy a chat and a cuppa!) Our dedicated property team will make sure you’re well looked after, leaving you free to make the very best of your time at university.
Truro Court is located on Mortimer Street, within easy walking distance to Sheffield city centre and Sheffield train station. If you are looking to relax between lectures The Peace Gardens and The Winter Gardens are located minutes away from the residence. Additionally Sheffield has over 80 parks and gardens, so there will always be somewhere to unwind in the sun (weather depending, of course!).
To catch up on the latest blockbusters, the Showroom Cinema and the Odeon are under a 10 minute walk away. Sheffield also has an impressive theatre complex, the largest of its kind outside of London's South Bank, offering both in-house productions and touring shows.
The new Moor Market is Sheffield’s brand new market, with over 196 stalls of food heaven, just a 15 minute walk from Truro Court.

The Kelham Island Museum is a 25 minute walk away and highlights Sheffield’s industrial story from the period of early industrialisation through to modern times. Sheffield’s not nicknamed ‘Steel City’ for nothing!
