If it's the one I'm thinking about then its Fitzallan Square, which is slap bang in the middle of the city centre. I've not been inside - but as far as location goes, you can't get any more central.

Your University will have a very good accommodation department, start your search there.

I think the main University site is now called property with us.

The "us " being University of Sheffield,cute.

They ask landlords to agree a code of conduct and before an advert is listed they check fire alarm system,gas,electric  Certificates.

If there's a dispute they will also help.

There tons of accommodation in city centre about 15000 plus places in last decade or so and more to come.

There's a hefty premium though often about £120 a week for ensuite room with 6  rooms sharing a common area plus kitchen

Not been inside the Cube either.

The area outside is being redeveloped.

If you have a search on the forum there's a whole thread on it.

It's not an an attractive place at the minute and before had folk hanging around with alledged drug dealing.

For Hallam there's plenty if shiny new accommodation over by London Road/ Bramall Lane.

The prime surburb is Broomhill.

Good shopping precinct and lots of regular buses to town.Indeed the 52 runs runs right to Hallams door and 10 mins journey time.

There's at least 4 letting agent shops at Broomhill.

If you go via University listing you might be able to contact owners direct and avoid agent fees too

 

Oh student pad website might be worth a look too
