Living in the city
When you’re not busy studying or socialising, you’ll need somewhere to call home. Sheffield has a range of options to choose from within walking distance of the International College.
Make yourself comfortable
Many people find they meet lifelong friends when living in student accommodation. It is a part of student life and a big step in finding your independence after living at home.
The University of Sheffield International College offers you the opportunity to live in the heart of the city. All of our residences are within a short distance from the local amenities and the International College.
You can even view the accommodation options in VR
if you have a headset or Google Cardboard!
During your time at The University of Sheffield International College you can choose to either live in allocated student accommodation or arrange your own private accommodation.
We strongly advise all students to secure their accommodation before arriving in the UK. This will ensure that there are no difficulties with confirming your course, at immigration or at police registration on arrival (if required).
Students are advised to confirm their place at the International College early. After you confirm your place, you will be sent the details of your residence and your room in a Tenancy Agreement*. Once you have signed and returned this, your room will be secure. Your statement will give details of the cost of your accommodation and when payment instalments are due.
When can you arrive?
Your accommodation will normally be ready the weekend before your course starts. This is also when we expect you to arrive. Exact tenancy dates will be confirmed with your accommodation details - please do not arrive before your tenancy starts as your room will not be available.
*Accommodation is subject to availability.
