1 Bed Student Flats in Sheffield

Looking for a little more privacy and independence whilst studying. A 1 bedroom student flat in Sheffield could be just right for you

If you don’t like the idea of sharing your space with others and are looking for a little more privacy and independence, renting a 1 bedroom student flat in Sheffield could be just right for you. Many of our 1-bed student flats in Sheffield flats are located in the city centre, giving you easy access to university and all the local amenities.

More choice is available for students

Not everyone is looking to share in a student house and the student property market has evolved over the years to offer 1 bedroom student flats to let for the academic year. Of course, this is particularly true in Sheffield where the rise of modern blocks of flats has grown notably.

Advantages of renting a 1-bed student flat in Sheffield


A 1-bed student flat offers a greater level of independence to sharing a house with others. Decisions on living arrangements don’t have to be made with others and it removes the risk of having housemates who won’t necessarily keep up with the cleaning of the property or stick to the terms of the shared tenancy agreement. The responsibility of this is kept squarely to you and no one else.

Your own style and touch

Although the conditions of your tenancy may limit how you decorate, you have complete control over what goes where and can put your own style and personality in your new home. Make the flat as homely and comfortable as you like without having to consider others who would use the communal areas like the kitchen or bathroom.


This is solely on you, There would be no worrying if one of your housemates has locked the door behind them, or are sneaking into your room to borrow anything whilst your out!


Only you (and us if you invite us to undertake repairs) have access to your property. For those concerned about privacy in their own residence, there will be no one watching over you in shared areas or able to determine when you are in or out of the property. A one-bedroom flat could be ideal. A quieter environment can also help with studying at home because there is less noise and distraction from housemates.

You can invite who you want

You may not get along with some of your housemate’s friends/family or associates. Living independently in a 1 bed flat means that you can invite whoever you want around. Providing you’re not disturbing your neighbours of course.

No Communal Areas

Having to wait for the bathroom in the morning? Waiting for your turn to use the kitchen for dinner? This doesn’t exist with a 1 bed flat as you are the only one with access to these facilities. You can follow your daily routines to your timetable and not have to be considerate to others.

Many properties have bills included

The majority of our 1 bedroom flats have the bills included, meaning services like water, gas, electric and internet are included in your rental price. The only things you will need to pay extra for is things like tv licence and insurance. This can help with budgeting your money for the year.

The costs of a 1 bed Student flat in Sheffield

The benefits and convenience of renting a one-bedroom flat are not without drawbacks. Not being able to spread the costs amongst housemates for some day to day things and bills can mean it costs a little more for your privacy. You would be fully responsible for cleaning the flat and other potentially dividable bills like a TV licence.

The social aspect

Although it may sound appealing, there is a disadvantage to living alone in a 1-bed student flat. The reduction of interaction with other people can be difficult Feeling lonely in a new place away from friends and families can be one of the hardest things ever. If you are not good at enjoying your own company or struggle to interact with new people and forge friendships. Living on your own may not be the choice for you. Luckily, the majority of our flats are within a block so there is always someone nearby to talk to.


Most 1-bed student flats are conveniently located in the city centre. This location makes things like commuting to university easy as the majority of buildings are within a 5-10 minute walk away. Likewise, whilst Shopping is on your doorstep not to mention other amenities such as bars, restaurants etc. For things slightly further away being in the city centre means your on the doorstep of the transport hub for the region, taking any hassle out of travelling.
