A new block of student accommodation in Sheffield has officially opened.

Located in Bramall Lane the seven-storey building, called the Elements, will provide 735 bedrooms.

The accommodation will be managed by Host, the student facing arm of Victoria Hall Management.

The company has a five-year agreement with Sheffield Hallam University to help accommodate its students in the building.

The building officially opened on 29 November and provides a mix of four, five and six bed cluster flats. The en-suite bedrooms will share kitchen and dining facilities and students will have access to an on-site cinema, pool, games room and gym.

Commenting on the scheme, John Nesbitt, managing director of VHML, said: "Victoria Hall are delighted to launch the Elements student accommodation building in Sheffield which we have recently developed on behalf of the Blackrock European Fund and will be managed under our HOST brand."

"We are honoured that Karen Burke, Head of ASRA and Accommodation Services at Sheffield Hallam University officially opened the scheme. We are pleased to have successfully worked in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and the City Council in helping to deliver their Accommodation Strategy for the city."

"This is a fabulous student accommodation scheme which we believe offers award-winning, high quality accommodation and living experience to Hallam's students. Host offers hassle-free, all-inclusive student accommodation and provides students with a welcoming, reassuring and stress-free experience at university."
