Student Spotlight: Ecclesall Road

Today the West One Student Accommodation Sheffield Exposed Takeover brings you a spotlight on the Ecclesall Road area.


Ecclesall Road, and the streets leading off it, is one of the most vibrant areas for students to live in Sheffield and is home to both Hallam and University students, running for approximately 3.5 miles. This cosmopolitan area boasts pubs, restaurants and shops galore. 


To name but a few there's bakery and cafe bar, Fancie, reasonably priced boozer, The Nursery Tavern, burger heaven Mud Crab Diner,  Italian restaurants Nonnas and Carluccios, bar and restaurant Graze Inn, Sheffield's first Indian restaurant, Ashoka, plus a fair few coffee shops such as the popular Couch and Marco's as well as your Starbucks, Costa and Nero. And if fast food is all you're needing after a heavy night, there's KFC located conveniently next to Tesco as well as Nando's and the UK's first ever Taco Bell, just up the road.



In terms of shopping there are a few charity shops dotted about Ecclesall Road which are great for bargain hunting and for finding unique pieces. There's also Joy which offers an alternative to your average high street store, stocking independent brands and accessories. There's also the quirky vintage apparel and record store, Knuf which is reasonably priced and stocked full of one-offs.



The other thing Ecclesall Road has in abundance is hairdressers and beauty salons, what's more almost all of them provide new customer and student discounts.



Ecclesall Road runs close to Botanical Gardens and Endcliffe Park, which is a prime location for ball games, barbecues and lazy summer days.



This cosmopolitan road is also in close proximity to Collegiate Campus which is why it is popular with students as it is just a short walk away. There are plenty of buses going down ‘Eccy Road’ and you will only end up having to wait a couple of minutes to head into town which is a perfect convenience.


 Eccelsall road is the ideal location if you wanted to get that student vibe and feel at home with other like-minded people.
