All shared flats at Pickering House Sheffield are inclusive of private ensuite rooms that are fully furnished with a bed, wardrobe, ample under-bed storage, modern bathroom and study area, so you can have your privacy and enjoy effective studying. All flats have a communal kitchen and lounge area, fully equipped with a fitted kitchen, dining table, chairs and sofas. This is the perfect space for you to put your cooking skills to practice, chill out with friends and interact with your flatmates as well as get to know them better.  There is an added luxury of a Balcony, where you can relax, soak some sun and enjoy the perfect English Summer evenings.

When it comes to facilities offered at Pickering House student accommodation you can rest assured that you will have only the best of student living. We understand how difficult it must be for you to find time off from your busy schedule for cleaning up your own room, let alone the communal space and kitchen! To serve this very purpose there are kitchen cleans that take place every two weeks as well as the in-house housekeeping team will make the communal lounge sparkly clean and fresh again. There is an on-site laundry area, so you will ever have to be burdened about carrying piles of dirty laundry across distances to the nearest Laundromat. If you are facing plumbing problems, mechanical issues or just need something fixed, you can call on the maintenance team to care of it. There are printing services available on the premises, so you won’t have to worry about rushing to get it done at University first thing in the morning. In order to ensure you have a sociable environment you can thrive in, there is provision for a Communal Lounge – the ideal space to spend time with friends and make new ones. The Social Calendar in place allows you to be part of social events where you can meet students from diverse backgrounds, residing on the property.

Pickering House Sheffield has a Tesco’s right next door and is only within 10 minutes walking distance from The Lunch Stop and Philpotts, both are brunch or lunch time havens, known to have the best, sandwiches in Sheffield and a variety in tea & coffee. At about 10 minutes walk lie The Wellington, The Ship Inn and Joro Pubs, which will soon become favourite places to unwind with friends, over a reasonably priced drinks and food!

The Sheffield City centre can be reached in 12 minutes flat from Pickering House student accommodation. This means you are literally minutes away from where all the action is and can easily stroll down to a restaurant to grab lunch with friends, catch a movie, shop to your heart’s content and as the evening creeps on, head to one of the many bars on West Street or put on your dancing shoes to enjoy a student club night at one of the never-ending clubs.
