Sheffield is home to not one but two world-class Universities, with a collective student population of more than 60,000 descending on the city every year. Sheffield’s growing popularity as a thriving student destination has led to a rise in student numbers in recent years, an influx which is increasingly not being met since demand far outstrips supply within the city.
It has been estimated that a staggering 83.2% (50,154) of Sheffield’s overall student population are not housed by their respective universities, meaning that there is already a huge demand for bespoke student accommodation in a highly sought-after location. While the majority of pre-existing Sheffield student housing stock in the past decade have been outdated cluster flats, Bento’s new and innovative concept for designer student living are ideal for modern cosmopolitan students.
