In 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 was founded following lobbying by artist Benjamin Haydon
Benjamin Haydon
. The day-to-day running was controlled by the local council, whilst the Board of Trade in London appointed the head. Tuition began in a 60x40ft rented room off Glossop Road. In 1850 the School of Design was renamed Sheffield
School of Art.

In 1905 the City of Sheffield
Training College (later renamed Sheffield
City College of Education) on Collegiate Crescent
Collegiate Crescent
admitted its first 90 students.

In 1967 the Owen Building was constructed. Built in a functional 1960s design, it has since been modernised and comprehensively renovated with an atrium linking it to three adjacent buildings. In 1969 the Sheffield
School of Design merged with the city's College of Technology to form Sheffield
Polytechnic. In 1976 Sheffield Polytechnic merged with the city's two teacher training colleges ( Sheffield
City College and Totley Hall College) and was renamed Sheffield
City Polytechnic. In 1987 Sheffield
City Polytechnic became a founding member of the Northern Consortium .


In 1992 Sheffield
City Polytechnic became Sheffield
Hallam University (SHU), with the right to award its own degrees.

In 2005 SHU was reorganised into four faculties. 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 Nelson Mandela Building, the former students' union building, was sold and has since been demolished.

In 2007 SHU took over the teaching of nursing and midwifery from the University of Sheffield
. These activities are now based at the Collegiate Crescent
Collegiate Crescent
Campus. The following year the Psalter Lane campus (formerly the Sheffield
College of Art) was closed, and the activities transferred to the City Campus. The £26 million energy-efficient Furnival Building opened in September (renamed Cantor Building in 2011 in recognition of a major donor to the university). The building, which includes teaching spaces and an art gallery has been described as "the impressive new entry point to the campus".
