Psalter Lane


Psalter Lane

Psalter Lane was one of three campuses that made up Sheffield Hallam University in Sheffield, England. The campus officially closed on August 31 2008. It was situated further out of central Sheffield than both the main campus and Collegiate Crescent. Psalter Lane was mainly concerned with ACES courses, although a number of courses within the faculty of D&S (Development and Society) were also taught on site such as Film Studies.

Facilities

The library at Psalter Lane specialised in the arts and media. The Special Collections included an original of Stubbs' "The Anatomy of the Horse" (1766) and a collection of photographs from the miners strike. All Special Collections have moved to the main City Campus site.

Notable events in Psalter Lane history

In 1978, the site (then known as Sheffield Art College) hosted the debut gig by The Human League. ABC also performed live for the first time at Psalter Lane.
