Why Study at Sheffield Hallam University - City Campus
Considered the 11th largest university in the UK, Sheffield Hallam University is a public research university with two campuses located in Sheffield. The City Campus is located in the city centre right next to Sheffield railway station while the Collegiate Crescent Campus is located on Ecclesall Road in south-west Sheffield. The university started out as Sheffield School of Design in 1843 as Sheffield became the centre for steel, tool, and cutlery making. It was then renamed Sheffield School of Art in 1850. The first 90 students were admitted to Sheffield City College of Education on Collegiate Crescent in 1905 before the collegiate hall was requisitioned by the War Office during WWI. The Owen Building was then constructed in a 1960s design, and two years later, the city's College of Technology and the Sheffield School of Design merged to form Sheffield Polytechnic.
In 1976, Sheffield Polytechnic went on to merge with two teacher training colleges, Sheffield City College and Totley Hall College and was renamed Sheffield City Polytechnic. It later became a founding member of the Northern Consortium. Finally, in 1992, Sheffield City Polytechnic was granted rights to award its own degrees and became Sheffield Hallam University (SHU).
