The Elements, Sheffield, is officially opened
Although our students moved in during September, last week we were proud to see our brand-new student accommodation in Sheffield, The Elements, officially opened.
The building officially opened on Thursday 29th November 2018 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Karen Burke, head of ASRA and accommodation services at Sheffield Hallam University, as well as members of the Host team, the investors and developers behind the project.
The Elements is a seven-storey student accommodation development located on Sheffield’s Bramall Lane. The building comprises 735 bedrooms, consisting of 732 en-suite cluster bedrooms arranged in 4-6 bed flats, as well as 3 individual studio flats.
Students residing at The Elements can also take advantage of a whole host of on-site facilities for them to enjoy including a large common room with games tables and TV, study areas, a gym, a cinema room and a private outdoor courtyard.
The Elements will house students of Sheffield Hallam University – which is just a short walk away, so students haven’t far to go for classes. And the city centre and the ever popular Ecclesall Road, packed with shops, restaurants, bars and the like, are only a 10 minute walk away too, making The Elements the perfect place for students to call home whilst studying in the city.
If you’d like to find out more about our student accommodation at The Elements, you can contact the site directly and a member of the team will be happy to help.
#HostEnvironmentalPledge. Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; Student Minds, LandAid and Just a Drop.Show me all news
At Host, our staff work tirelessly to ensure a safe, friendly and comfortable environment for our students to live in and to provide an excellent experience for them whilst at university or college.
New Year, new us? Well, not really, but the arrival of a New Year often provides opportunities to look back and reflect on the past year and make any changes you feel necessary for a prosperous year.
