Sheffield a hub for students 

Sheffield, England’s fourth-largest city, is an exciting and modern place with a population of over 560,000.

It is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for students, playing host to over 60,000 domestic and overseas students, a high proportion of whom choose to stay, or return and settle in the city.

The presence of two high-ranking universities and one of the largest further education colleges in the UK means Sheffield has a distinctly youthful population throughout the year and, therefore, considerable rental demand from its high number of students and young professionals.
