Student accommodation in Sheffield

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. You can choose to stay in University-managed accommodation close to the International College, or arrange your own private accommodation.

St Vincent's Place

Located in the heart of the city, near the main University campus and next to the International College, St Vincent’s Place is a new development which incorporates a beautifully renovated church. The church is now a place to socialise, offering a café, cinema room, games and a shared kitchen. There is also a Residence Life Mentor to help you settle into life in the UK through organised social activities and student support.

Most International College students and all under 18s will live at St Vincent's Place. Other University-managed accommodation options are available through the University's online portal.

Yaroslav at St Vincent's Place accommodation

My first friends here were people from other rooms in my block. On the first day we all were a bit shy because we had just moved in and were missing our homes. But after a few days we became really close; we spent time together, we went to Meadowhall to play some games and after a few weeks we became really close friends and we can share our thoughts, share our problems and do things together.
