A Fresher's Guide to clubbing in Sheffield


Share This Article:

Moving to a new city for University can be daunting; the pressures of living with new people and worrying that you will not like them are feelings we can all relate to.

But don’t worry, in Freshers Week this is the time to go out with them and truly get to know them. This guide includes the best student nights happening in Sheffield.

Club: Gaga at The Leadmill

What to expect: Indie Anthems, R&B, House

Opening Times: 11pm4am

The Leadmill is well known for its killer gigs and club nights, a favourite being Club Tropica that frequents here. However, Gaga is the answer to what to do on a Friday night, with two rooms covering indie anthems, chart toppers, R&B and house, Gaga caters to the masses (with the main focus being indie). These club nights are often themed, get down early or you might miss out on a burrito before the £2 vodka mixers start flowing. Leadmill is only five minutes from the train station and a stone’s throw away from Leadmill Point accommodation.
