We're staying close, but I can see it both ways.
I know that Derbyshire constabulary are the most keen on keeping people out, but also, there is quite a bit of Sheffield that's actually in the national park. So you could choose to go to those parts of the Peak district.
You can see the boundary on the OS map here https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=f8999181-146e-4d2e-978a-c08a1f3837c7&cp=53.363538~-1.590741&lvl=13&style=s&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027
It's the dashed and dotted line that runs through Stanedge pole.
I used to live not far from City Road, not aware of any Mosques nearby (but then I'm not religious in anyway).
The only mosque I know of is Medina Mosque, their website is Sheffield Islamic Centre Madina Masjid Trust - Home who may be worth contacting to see if they know of anywhere more local to where you will be living.
Good luck with the move and hope you enjoy the city.
Seeing as you're so keen I'll go one further - here's a report I wrote about my trip there.
Excuse the sensationalist narrative, I do like to spin a yarn when I write.
Here is a complete set of photos from the trip.
If you or any of your friends goes to the university they have a student-run cinema that shows films pretty cheap. If you're not a union member you can still be signed in by someone who is. http://www.filmunit.org.uk/
In addition to that the Documentary Society shows great documentary films every Thursday in the Arts Tower, just £1 and you get a cuppa too! https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=133705323436&ref=ts
If you are here, and decided not to ignore the post, then do point out any issues with the video (player, controls, presentation etc..) and I'll pass them on.
As to the content, well, feel free to discuss, but I mostly needed a freely copy-able Sheffield related one to upload.
Assuming this all works nicely, I'll drop out an announcement about the ability to directly upload video (for those who want to..) later, this doesn't change the ability for you to link video or anything else etc...
The video is by [Terry Mbugua](Terry Mbugua) and is CC-VY-SA
I have zero understanding of anything Korean BUT students at the uni have set up a tandem group who are actually meeting for the first time today, maybe you can meet someone there
Saw from one of your other comments you're coming here for uni. You'll make loads of pals at University, and there are countless student societies around every conceivable interest - in the mean time..
If you like board games, there are a couple (I think) of board game cafes - Treehouse on London Rd is the only one I know the name of. Check out meetup.com as well, my wife met some of her now best friends through a meetup group.
It wasn't, I changed it back 2 years ago, and Meersbrook changed it to 'Little Kelham' again.
I too cannot find any evidence of it that isn't anecdotal.
Firstly welcome to Sheffield!
For Barbers there are a few in Broomhill (some over student discounts as well - just say you're a student and you should be fine).
Places to Eat - loads, far too many to talk about in all honesty, lots of pubs though which are great to eat. Similarly a large amount of clubs in Sheffield; Corp, DQ, Plug etc.
Biking, yet again, there is a lot - may want to have a look a few here
Not sure about those hobbies in all honesty.
Go for the local independant instructors - usually the better instructors (I can't remember the name of the instructor unfortunately but there are quite a few of them and most of them are good).
Try the advice given at Find My iPhone.
Such software/functionality is built in to iOS and Android these days.
Obviously its conditional on the phone being on and connected to either WiFi or network, and anyone wishing to do anything dubious like resell it might be aware of this and have knowledge/skills on changing IMEI codes etc. to make the phone useable again.
Also worth contacting your mobile provider to let them know too.
EDIT : I've no idea if you can install applications remotely on iOS devices as I've never owned one (nor want to, I think they're over-priced and too restrictive), you can do this on Android though which is why I suggested trying it.
I spent five and a half years commuting by train from Sheffield to Manchester (Oxford Road Station then 15 minute walk) its eminently do-able but the trains are pretty packed and used to suffer delays fairly regularly (this was 2001-2006 and my recollection may be biased).
Far better than driving though which is dead time, but it is rather expensive.
Online coverage map of mobile networks is provided globally by OpenSignal. Personally I rate Three and with their Feel-at-home no roaming charges in 60 countries its one less ball-ache (although annoyingly for you Canada isn't currently included).
You could try this application...
UK Bus Checker
...found it pretty useful myself, and covers the whole country, not just Sheffield so useful when travelling.
I've just checked, it works in the Google Earth app on Android. I imagine it'll work on Apple devices, too.
If you go the portable air conditioner route, it may be worth also getting a window seal to prevent hot air / exhaust from flowing straight back in.
Make sure you get one the right size for your window, but when we used one of these there was definitely a noticeable improvement in the air conditioner's effectiveness.
(If you really want to go all-out, get a double-hose aircon unit so the input air comes from outside rather than in the room; otherwise, with a window seal you can potentially create a pressure differential that reduces the unit's effectiveness, though I don't know how powerful a unit / how good a seal you'd need for that to be noticeable.)
Get yourself a cooling towel — soak it in water, wring it a tiny bit so it's not dripping everywhere and drape it over your head/neck. Yes, you could just use a regular towel, but I have one of these I've taken to festivals and it works much better.
These are really good. Easy to put up (just have double sided tape on the top) and you casn just cut them to size if they arwe too big. They're just thick paper. You get loads of it too, 6 of them, 89 CM wide and 200 CM long.
I'm sure there are cheaper ones, but I can only vouch for these!
I didn't realise it was a secret, I run past there regularly and they are clearly visible from the path that runs through the woods so not super well hidden. Further they are marked on OpenStreetMap.
Titles can't be edited after posting though, so its either leave it up for people to appreciate or delete completely.
This would be my recommendation as it bypasses Glossop completely and the A555 drops you right by the airport, and depending on where you have booked the car to park might take you right past the various long stay options.
This shows the route from the outskirts of the city. It takes in the scenic Wynnats Pass too which is steep but cars can pass each other without too much hassle, going up it you'll be in first, perhaps second gear.
The Peak isn't always foggy but can be and you just slow down.
Then a good bet is to catch the 272 bus out and get off either at the stop by the bottom of Burbage Valley and wander round the corner to see the valley, or stay on a little further and get off at Surprise View from where a short walk gives great views of the Hope Valley.
The planning portal is ... yeah

You probably only need a cable like this. I know you want it today though. Are there still any PC places on London Road ?

Try GumTree, for example this listing just asks for monthly rent paid in advance (£58 / per week). Won't be the height of luxury, but it's next to collegiate campus and the area is fine.
I work at the Diamond and it's not that loud around there on fri / sat nights, I'd suggest anywhere west-wards is fine. Gumtree is an alright place to look for flats / studios, such as in this area;
I'd avoid living in the city centre, Nether Edge is a good place that's around 20 minute walk within the Uni, Aldi / Lidl, gyms, the town centre, places to go out, etc. You could try ReCycle on Thirlwell Road for 2nd hand bikes that have been serviced if you don't feel like walking as well.
West Street is full of beggars and each one has a novel full of stories to convince you to give them your money (I've seen students give away up to £50 from the ones that camp near the ATM's), don't assume they're all homeless. It's a shame the street is so close to the Uni but it's not that bad (I still avoid it anyway).
Have a look at this
It's rarely hot but also never gets very cold any more, and it's probably about average for amount of rain. But it get's grey a lot and can be windy throughout autumn.
It did hit 33.7 degrees this summer though, maybe this will continue to occur, I certainly hope so.
OK, well, it is supposed to be possible, and that's pretty damn impressive.
However it may make this seem less impressive. I should add that I get great cable internet speeds and that I'm close to the city centre in the direction of Walkley with direct line of sight to a couple of mobile masts.. Looking at the mapping (for Vodaphone anyway..) it looks like it may be possible around the uni, but I really haven't seen speeds anywhere near that on the ground when working or generally (but I mostly don't check..).
I did a BTEC in Computing many years ago, and I guess the curriculum has changed significantly since I did it because I came away with knowledge of Pascal, C++ & Visual Basic from the various modules & assignments.
Assuming there is no development angle to the course any more and it's more in line with a Computer Science degree then why not get involved with some open source projects? Even if you can't code you can help out with documentation, triaging & testing bug reports. These things will get you used to the community & teach you how to use the various build tools that different languages use.
There are also things like Udacity & other online universities that offer software engineering courses for free.
Theres also Codecademy http://www.codecademy.com/ as well which is meant to be very good.
One word of advice, stay away from the various programming subreddits, you will get very little good advice there, and plenty of trolling.
Thanks that's a really nice helping hand of you! Since I didn't know the existence of 16-25 rail cards
I totally forgot about http://www.blablacar.com/ found some persons who can bring us as cheap as £11 a person but still the megatrain offers are very nice and I think my girlfriend would choose for that option :-)
Wow thanks for the feedback, these are some really great suggestions! Clicking the dot on the map to find the post is on the todo list for today too :)
I'll add them to the development board https://trello.com/b/0tIedbBq/geohub-io today and you can see their progress. Also, have some Reddit gold.
Custom bin stickers? Can put your number and street address on them.
£2.50 for four and mine still seems fine after a couple of months.
I bought this book of Peak District walks over Christmas and it's fantastic. A few of the walks are better known, but many I'd never heard of before.
There's one that starts from the little village of Beeley near Chatsworth and takes you up onto Beeley Moor. Stunning views and quiet trails, if that's your kind of thing.
For £10 it's a worthy purchase.
I used this book at uni to give me a hand, it's like the level one of candy crush but very handy stepping stone :) (it was on the class assigned reading list)
Would defo consider a book club in the future
