When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
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. Karen Burke, head of ASRA and accommodation services at Sheffield Hallam University attended. 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. There are 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 to enjoy. There’s a large common room with games tables and TV, study areas, a gym, a cinema room and 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. The city centre and Ecclesall Road, packed with shops, restaurants, and bars, are only a 10 minute walk away too. All of which make The Elements the perfect place for students to call home whilst studying in the city.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

It’s a simple campaign! For every percent we reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by we donate to one of our nominated charities.Show me all news
