Hatfield's focus on student night life at the hatfield square as in the past has shifted with the demolition of the Hatfield Square in the beginning of October 2015, the new student accommodation on the Hatfield Square site is a welcome addition to the bustling Hatfield suburb. The renewed focus on Sports, Sports development around the University of Pretoria and High Performance Centre, has led to the need for team accommodation along Arcadia Street, between Glyn and Richard Street.
