Indeed many of our student houses have had full refurbishments in recent times, and all are very modern and fully deserving of the title ‘luxury student accommodation’!. The fact we own our student houses in Sheffield is very different from other student letting agents in Sheffield who usually are middlemen for the actual house owner (aka the landlord). Some other companies include Dove Properties, Rightmove, Accommodation for Students, Unite Students, MAF Properties, Sheffield Student Property, StuRents and Igloo Accommodation.

Student Accommodation FAQ's

Student Accommodation FAQ’s

Here are some common questions about student accommodation in Sheffield.

When should I apply for accommodation?

You should apply for student accommodation as early as possible however in your first year you may not know who you want to live with until later on in the year, and so most students end up applying for accommodation in late Winter time, so roughly half way through the academic year.

Can I view a house before accepting?

Yes of course, we recommend you and your friends visit a house to make sure it’s exactly what you want. You can talk to current students in the house, checkout the facilities and the surrounding area, to make sure it’s the perfect student house for you.

How is a house different to halls of residence?

Living in halls is very sociable, often with 8+ people living along a corridor, in a building of many different flats. In your second, third, and other years, you end up focusing more on your studies and so you want a less hectic atmosphere, whilst still enjoying the sociability of living with others. This makes a student house the perfect choice, allowing you to live with your close friends, without being distracted by large parties and other noises associated with halls of residence.

Can I move out of my accommodation before the end of the academic year?

While you can move in and out of your accommodation at will, your contract will determine how long you have to pay for the accommodation.

What will be in my bedroom?

All of our houses come with fully furnished bedrooms, however you can check the particular furniture in a certain house by browsing the bedroom photos on the individual property pages.

Are there any Student Guides and Student Resources on this website?

Yes we have a wide range of  Student guides and Student resources , we also have a good selection of Sheffield Resource and Guides

Sheffield Activities, Facilities and Nightlife Guide

Student Life

There are around 60,000 students living in Sheffield (source), and this is because of the two major universities in the area, Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield. You will never run out of things to do at these universities, with regular organised nights at each union themed around a wide range of fun and adventurous topics. As a student you will feel relaxed and safe in Sheffield, with the city centre receiving a big redevelopment in recent years that make it a pleasure to live in, from Ecclesall Road all the way to Sheffield Train Station. Get ahead of the game and read some of our Sheffield student guides and find out what Sheffield has to offer!

Sports and Competitions

You are in good company for sport in Sheffield, with many of the students dedicated to a wide range of sports. It’s in the city’s culture, with the first ever football club being founded here (Sheffield FC) along with other big clubs including Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday football clubs. There is also the famous Crucible Theatre that hosts the World Snooker Championships, as well as the countrywide English Institute of Sport being located in the city. If you’re looking for a gym to keep fit at, then there are a few good options to choose from, with S10 Sport Sheffield best for the Uni of Sheffield students, and for Sheffield Hallam students there are the Pure Gym Sheffield City Centre and the Sheffield Hallam Active Gym.

Nightlife and Entertainment

From swanky nighclubs like Crystal or Paris, to the more laid back and indie clubs like Leadmill or Corporation (the school disco night on a Wednesday is very popular), there is a whole host of different options when going out as a student in Sheffield. The majority of the clubs are located within walking distance of the city centre, and students from Ecclesall Road may want to get a taxi home afterwards to save on the sore feet! There is also the large O2 Academy Arena in the city which hosts many different bands, but unfortunately you will no longer be able to visit the famous Embrace or Gatecrasher nightclubs as they have since shut down.

Food Places

On Ecclesall Road you have a wide range of independent restaurants and famous chain restaurants to choose from, whilst the city centre of Sheffield offers a whole host of native and cultural cuisine options to keep your taste buds satisfied. You could visit Division Street or West Street in the city centre, or make your way over to Meadowhall Shopping Centre using the Sheffield Tram, and experience the foodcourt where there is a Wagamamas, McDonalds, and a KFC.

Cultural Hubs

We have already mentioned the Crucible theatre, but there is another Sheffield theatre worth mentioning and that is the Lyceum. Both of them together represent the largest theatre complex located outside of the London area, which is a big boost to the city. The Fly DSA arena is well known for hosting international bands such as Little Mix and Nickleback, as well as the local band The Arctic Monkeys. You can also get your head into some natural beauty, with the Peak District a short bus ride out of the city, and the Winter Garden and Peace Gardens located for student to browse to their hearts content. Now the city is opening up again there are loads of great things for students to do in Sheffield coming back online.
While the city has understandably suffered a little from the COVID crisis , it is only a matter of time before Sheffield is boom town once again! Students have weathered the storm and once the ‘open up’ command is given from the UK government we expect to see life returning to a new kind of normal.

Ecclesall Nightlife is back in action judging on these scenes after Englands excellent semi final win over Denmark!


  • review rating 5  Overall a very positive experience with Strawberry. We have had very nicely furnished and a well looked after house all year near the Botanical Gardens in Ecclesall, with minimal problems. The staff in the office are very helpful and nothing has been too much trouble for them when we have had anything crop up. Also their maintenance guys are spot on, friendly and addressed anything that needed doing very quickly. Very happy with the service all year! Recommended!

  • review rating 5  Been with Strawberry since my second year at university and they have been really good. House is well maintained and we have had no issues apart from minor things that they have had fixed really fast. Location is lovely and we love Ecclesall road and will not be leaving the area, Probably going to be in the same house next year although a few housemates are finishing at Uni so hoping to make the numbers up to stay in this house. Having said that Strawberry are very helpful and even let us rent the house with a man down so to speak, and kept the rents the same for all of us as if we had a full house. A* customer service thankyou Strawberry you u guys rock.

  • review rating 5  Our house just off Ecclesall road is in great condition and well maintained. Strawberry have always been really friendly and prompt if any thing needed fixing which is going to happen with 7 students living in a house..! rent was very competitive and to be honest the houses are definitely way above the other student 'rental' agencies, these are some pukka student places. One other thing is that Strawberry own all their houses rather than manage them on behalf of hundreds of other landlords, so they have full control over getting stuff done fast and keeping them tip top. Definitely the company to use for student homes in Ecclesall.

    thumb Declan Hawkins
  • review rating 5  I have been renting a property from Strawberry for the past year and have been more than happy with their service. The house was very clean when we arrived and the standard of house is way above others we viewed. The location on Westbrook bank, for us anyway, cant be beaten and the rent is very competitive too. As a group of students the all inclusive nature of the property suits us very well and has proven to be very easy for us to manage. On the few occasions I have needed to contact Strawberry the office staff have been very friendly and attended to whatever issue we had. For example we were having some issues with the back door lock sticking and Strawberry had their own staff come and fit a new hi security lockset and provide us all with a new key. Brilliant team! Thanks guys

    thumb Dylan Ward
  • review rating 5  Really pleased we went with the Strawberry house, 7 bedrooms and the best quality by far of the many that we all viewed. They have been excellent to date, nothing has too much trouble for them with regards to stuff in the house. We had an issue with the hot water tap in the bathroom and they had a really nice maintenance guy out the same day to sort it. Awesome!
