Welcome to Central Quay,
your home from home.

Here at Central Quay, we understand that University years are some of the best in life, and a happy home is a big part of that. That’s why we’ve created a safe, exciting and enriching student community that gives you everything you need to grow.

You can find us in the heart of it all – right in the middle of Kelham Island, one of the trendiest and most vibrant areas in Sheffield, surrounded by independent bars, shops, cafés and restaurants and within walking distance of both Sheffield Hallam and the University of Sheffield.

We’ve got an impressive range of high-quality rooms to suit all budgets and needs, with a long list of onsite facilities including a gym, supermarket, large chill-out spaces and parking.

We’re not just student halls. We’re a hub of activity, friendship and conversation – a place where everyone is welcome. A place to meet new friends and make memories. A real home from home.

Explore our community, book a viewing, then come on in and make yourself at home – we’ll stick the kettle on
