University of Sheffield 9 Mappin street

That’s why the University of Sheffield has invested £3million in a stunning refurbishment of our new home at 9 Mappin Street. Our students and staff now have three storeys of state-of-the-art broadcast studios, multimedia newsrooms, breakout spaces, bright new offices, and a fabulous common room.

It’s the perfect setting for our students to gather experience of a real working news environment.

The production suite comprises a multi-camera HD TV studio and gallery, voiceover booths and radio studio. This makes industry-standard multimedia digital production easy, with the capacity to live-stream anywhere in the world. The suite is adaptable to future generations of digital technology.

Our revamped newsroom spaces are designed for both large and small group work. Students can work on their own, in workshop groups and on team projects.

And on the ground floor the 180-square-metre student common room offers soft lighting and sofas, computers and wi-fi, tea and coffee. It’s a great place to meet, chat, unwind and catch up.

We’ll add more pictures and video here later as our technical team puts the finishing touches to our students’ facilities. In the meantime use the link below to take a look at the first photos of our new home.
