About Portobello House Sheffield

Portobello House is Sheffield’s brand new premium student accommodation – literally on the door steps of Sheffield University’s Sir Robert Hadfield and Amy Johnson building’s, and a three minute walk from the main University campus, west of the accommodation. Sheffield Hallam University is also half a mile east of the accommodation and is located right next door to Sheffield train station. If you have too many heavy books to carry, there is a bus stop just around the corner with services dropping off right outside each site.

Located less than half a mile away from Sheffield City centre, Portobello house comprises 134 bed spaces spread out over Studios, Super Studios and two bed apartments, so whether you wish to live by yourself or share with a fellow student, this modern Portobello House is ideal.

During your studies, you can relax in the on-site cinema or communal lounge, socialise in the games and common room or get your sweat on in the on-site private gym. 

To make your stay as comfortable and safe as possible, there is also an on-site laundry, work room, 24 hour CCTV and a 24 maintenance line.

There are lots of opportunities for the avid shopper, with Orchard Square Shopping Centre less than half a mile away containing a variety of high street brands and also discount eateries for students.

Also around half a mile away, are large John Lewis and Debenhams stores. 

While you’re studying hard, why not also take some downtime at one of the various bars, restaurants and cafés all only five minutes walk away.

Portobello house also benefits from being just around the corner from the city tram route so there are lots of opportunities to get out and about.
