A seven-storey £24 million private build student accommodation facility in Sheffield’s city centre is now complete.

The building, to be run by Host, that manages 42 sites across Europe and the UK, opened on November 29 with a ribbon cutting ceremony

New-build ‘The Elements’ will provide 735 bedrooms and private outdoor courtyard on Sheffield’s Bramall Lane. The management team has a five year agreement with Sheffield Hallam University to help house students in the building’s accommodation.

A 10-15 minute walk from the town’s university Collegiate and City Campuses, the residence offers a mix of four, five and six-bed cluster flats, situated next to three supermarkets.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and share a kitchen and dining area with self-contained flats also available; students will also have access to an on-site cinema room, pool and games room and a gym.

John Nesbitt, managing director of VHML said, “Victoria Hall are delighted to launch the Elements student accommodation building in Sheffield which we have recently developed on behalf of the Blackrock European Fund and will be managed under our HOST brand.

"We are honoured that Karen Burke, Head of ASRA and Accommodation Services at Sheffield Hallam University officially opened the scheme. We are pleased to have successfully worked in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and the City Council in helping to deliver their Accommodation Strategy for the city."

Kevin Williamson, Investment Director of Host Students said: “Sheffield is a first-class University City and we’re keen to extend our partnership with Sheffield Hallam University. This development will give 735 of its first year students a fantastic place to live with all the facilities and services that a student today requires in order to successfully progress their academic life”
