Hunters Bar has whittled down its student population now quite considerably thanks to 'zero tolerance' community associations who have hounded them out since the ghetto years,  which was why these associations formed themselves to combat the student scourge.  Plus the new purpose- built accommodation in the city centre areas have been a Godsend.  Hunters Bar landlords struggle to get students to rent there now, as the word has obviously gone out, and have agreed with each other via the landlords associations to stagger the sale of their buy to lets to keep prices up. All good for us. We won't rest till the students have all gone. They are a nuisance every single day for one reason or another -bins left on streets, windows open with bass beat sounds day and night, pungent odours, litter etc.

Not sure about Hunters Bar but previously student-heavy Crookes has seen house prices drop over the past few years, against the trend for Sheffield as a whole.

I’d have thought the student population percentage has dropped in all areas outside the centre over the past 5 or 6 years as students migrate into the city centre. 

 

I bought a town house in Broomhill that 3 years ago had 8 medical students. In the two years I’ve been here I’ve noticed a drop in numbers. The current situation may push more private landlords to sell or move to normal rentals.
