Sheffield Hallam University’s city campus development begins

Adjacent to Howard Street, the development is the first phase of Sheffield Hallam’s campus plan and will see the construction of three new buildings.

The buildings will provide teaching and learning facilities for students and staff as well as using the latest technology and sustainability solutions to make them zero carbon ready.

The creation of a green public space will provide a heart for the campus, with more than 400 square meters of new greenery and spaces for up to 150 people to sit and relax. It will complement the extensive work being undertaken by partners to develop the Heart of the City.

Future phases of the campus plan will see further redevelopment and refurbishment of the city campus, enabling teaching, learning and research activity to be moved from the Collegiate campus within the next seven years, realising the ambition for a single campus in the city centre.

Delivering phase one of the campus plan, significantly improving part of Sheffield city centre, is one of the University’s key commitments in its Civic University Agreement. This includes a commitment to work with local partners to ensure plans maximise the benefits for Sheffield and the wider region.

Sheffield Hallam University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Chris Husbands, said: “I was delighted to mark the start of works on our new campus development alongside our key civic partners today.

“Once completed, our development of the city campus will play a major part in delivering on our ambitions as a university, including our contribution to the city and region as set out in our recently launched Civic University Agreement.

“These new facilities are designed to deliver significant benefits for our students, and to make Sheffield Hallam an even more attractive place to study and work, whilst also enhancing a key gateway to Sheffield City Centre.”

The first phase of the development is due to be completed in Spring 2024.
