If you’re studying full time and for the full academic year, we guarantee you a safe, comfortable place to live in university accommodation with other University of Sheffield students. 

There's a home here for you 

For us to guarantee you a place to live, you must apply for accommodation before the deadline. If Sheffield is your firm choice, you can start applying from March.

Our guarantee includes students who join us through Clearing or who have chosen the University as their insurance choice, the most important thing is to submit your application before the deadline outlined in the accommodation guarantee
How to apply

Returning students

Returning international and postgraduate students are also guaranteed accommodation suitable for single occupancy, if you’re studying a full-time course lasting more than one year. We also have an offer for returning students each year.

There are a few exceptions

Family accommodation

Demand is really high for family accommodation, and we have limited places. If we can’t allocate you a family home, we’ll do our best to advise you, and connect you to local private accommodation providers.

Exchange and Visiting students
Study bedrooms are available for students here for just one semester, but numbers are limited so apply as early as possible.

Our job is to help you find home

The Accommodation office will always help where we can, and we’re here to answer questions when you need us.
