Ey up!
It's Yorkshire Day!

We’re proud of our Yorkshire roots and we think Sheffield is one of the best places to be…

  • With over half a million people living here, Sheffield is a major city in the UK.
  • We’re also one of the greenest cities in the UK; 61% of the city is green space (33% lies inside the Peak District National Park), and there are more trees per person than any other city in Europe.
  • Sheffield runs on recycled energy: the city turns waste into thermal energy, which is then used to generate electricity.
  • We also keep warm playing hopscotch, 664 of us set a world record in 2019. In fact we’re flipping good at world records, staff and students set another world record in 2012 with 890 people tossing pancakes at once.
  • We’re a city like no other, and that’s why more than 29 000 students from over 150 countries choose to study with us.
  • And though it’s not got Sheffield in the name, we ALL love a yorkshire pudding!
