"There's a fabulous nightlife at the university. We have so many options of places to go to that there's pretty much somewhere for everyone. The students' union does some of my favourite nights out with events like Roar, the Tuesday Club and Pop Tarts. There are also loads of bars to go to on West Street as well as a multitude of other clubs such as Code, Tank, Leadmill, Plug and others. For a more chilled night out bar there's the one at the union and other places will do pub quiz nights, which are good fun."
"Sheffield University runs its own student nights at its on-campus clubs every single night of the week. These are safe, fun and inclusive environments to let loose. Additionally, there are two bars on campus and a pub as well so there are lots of different environments. If the student campus doesn't take your fancy, there is the Main Street with pubs, bars and clubs interspersed with restaurants, cafés and a supermarket."
"There's Code for a typical club night, Bierkeller for tunes that everyone knows, Corp Wednesday for the school disco, Leadmill for a silent disco and the O2 academy for concerts. Rock bars are dotted around and there are plenty of Wetherspoons too."
"The electronic music scene is incredibly good. Sheffield is one of the best places where you can find various raves going on all year round. There are many events focused on experimental music and new artists. There are many pubs in Sheffield and most of them have a warm and friendly atmosphere about them."
"There is a huge range of nightlife on offer. The many clubs and bars cater to all music tastes, from house to cheesy pop to heavy metal. There are many pubs near to the uni including a university-owned pub, all of which serve great food. The students' union has two nightclubs that have different themes every night of the week, including an LGBTQ night."
"The university area is at the centre of the city, which makes it very close to the most vibrant clubs and pubs in the city. Sheffield is a student city, which makes it a safe and suitable environment for students to party as well as grab a beer when they want to. There are various places available and most of them are a 10-minute walk from student living areas."
"Sheffield has a range of everything from cheap student bars offering two-pound pints to more smart cocktail bars. It has a great music scene for both live and electronic music as well as a huge variety of pop clubs. The SU is also consistently rated as one of the best in the country and it holds at least three nights a week."
