The commitment from both Universities to the public realm of the city is phenomenal. The re-invigoration of old buildings, the re-sculpting of pedestrian areas and the bringing of iconic and purposeful buildings to the cityscape have truly helped to transform Sheffield.
Sheffield Hallam University's ambition is to be the world's leading applied university. Their campus is largely city centre focussed and therefore collaborative with the council, with their masterplan split into two phases covering 20 years to help realise this aim through innovative buildings, spaces and facilities.
The University of Sheffield's masterplan has also seen collaboration with the council in places like Leavygreave Road which has totally opened up a new way to travel through the city. Cycling and walking safety are key in their proposals so that their campus, sitting between one part of the city and Kelham Island, can be better connected for the wellbeing of the city.
