Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) is a higher education institution in South Yorkshire, England, based on two sites in Sheffield. City Campus is located in the city centre, close to Sheffield railway station, and Collegiate Crescent Campus is about two miles away, adjacent to Ecclesall Road in south-west Sheffield.
1843 As the industrial revolution gathered pace and Sheffield was on the verge of becoming the steel, tool and cutlery making capital of the world, the Sheffield School of Design which is now in collegiate crescent campus was founded. For over a century it enjoyed a distinguished history as one of Britain’s top schools of art and design.
1905 The City of Sheffield Training College on Collegiate Crescent admitted its first 90 students.
1969 The Sheffield School of Design merged with the city’s College of Technology to form Sheffield Polytechnic.
1976 Sheffield Polytechnic absorbed the city’s two teacher training colleges, and was renamed Sheffield City Polytechnic.
1987 The institution becomes a founding member of the Northern Consortium.
1992 Sheffield City Polytechnic became Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), with the right to award its own degrees.
2004 SHU appointed its first clinical medical Honorary Professors.
2005 SHU was reorganised into four large faculties (see below). The new Faculty of Development and Society, with an emphasis on 'people, places and spaces', brought together education, geography, humanities, law, and social sciences. At the same time, with the intention of further developing research and teaching in the new Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, a new Clinical Academic Group was launched. The building that had been designed and constructed to house the National Centre for Popular Music became the university's students' union building (the HUBS). The former students' union building, the Nelson Mandela Building, was sold and has since been demolished.
2008 The Psalter Lane campus (formerly the Sheffield College of Art) was closed, and the activities transferred to the City Campus. The Psalter Lane site has been sold and is to be used for housing. A £26 million energy-efficient Furnival Building (renamed Cantor Building in 2011) opened in September. The building, which includes teaching spaces and an art gallery is said to be "the impressive new entry point to the campus".
SHU is divided into four faculties:
Faculty of Arts, Computing, Engineering and Sciences (ACES): Art & Design; Business Systems & IT; Communication & Media; Computers & Computing; Engineering & Technology; Mathematics & Statistics; and Multimedia & the Internet.
Faculty of Development and Society (D&S): Architecture & Planning; Built Environment; Education; English; Geography & Environmental Science; Humanities; Law & Community Justice; Social Sciences, Performing Arts.
