LIV Student top 5 student hangouts!

By JordanBrowzer 11 Jul 2019

Whether you're in the mood for a pint or want a quiet place to study, LIV Student have listed some of their favourite insider spots to explore.


Kommune is a really dynamic space in the heart of Sheffield's old city. It's got loads of different food and drink options with separately operated restaurants and cafes inside, as well as an art gallery and retail shops. Kommune also has a full program of events like game nights, film showings, and writer's circles.

Insider Tip: Don't miss out on their breakfast club, every day their open kitchen offers a brekkie option for a fiver, 10am - 12pm.

The Cabin

We could sit in The Cabin for hours (but the queue gets long on weekends, so not the best time to linger)! Just as the name implies, this timber-clad restaurant has a woodsy-homey feel and offers up even more comfort with their massive plates of pancakes and waffles. Their coffee is killer (perfect study aside), and they even have a cute gift shop. If you want to get cosy with a cuppa and do a bit of studying on a dreary day, this is your spot.

Steam Yard

Let's be real, at uni we all run on coffee. Steam Yard is one of the best shops in Sheffield! Come here to meet up with pals, have a study sesh, and make sure to treat yourself to a cronut or a cruffin, you won't be disappointed!

The HUBS - Sheffield Hallam Students' Union

If you're enrolled at Hallam, then your Students' Union, The HUBS, is located on Paternoster Row, close to Sheffield Train Station. The building itself has unique circular pods to divide the different areas. There are common rooms, advice centres, a Coffee Union and much more. Check out the event calendar to see a variety of available options; fitness classes, live music, movie nights and more.

Devonshire Green

On sunny days, head over to Devonshire Green, a lovely public green space in the City Centre between Fitzwilliam Street and Eldon Street. While there are events and concerts at the outdoor amphitheatre, with lots of seating, it's also the perfect place for some outdoor reading/studying. Or take a break and have a picnic with your mates.

Don't forget some of the cool hangouts LIV Student has as well, bang in the middle of the city we have a roof terrace, study rooms, an on-site cafe and more!
