Sheffield Freshers 2023: Photos show new cohort of uni students arriving at Endcliffe as freshers week begins

Sheffield is a great city for students, as shown by the 60,000 who choose to live and study here, and the proportion of them who choose to stay in the city after uni.

Over the weekend of September 16 and 17, the new cohort of students has been arriving in Sheffield and moving into their uni homes.

The outdoor city, the steel city, the greenest city in the UK, the home of football... whatever you know it as, Sheffield is a brilliant place for students, as shown by the fact that around 60,000 choose to live here during term time.

We went over to Endcliffe Village, part of the University of Sheffield's biggest halls, where nearly 4,000 first years have been arriving to this weekend.
