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.

Accommodation options

For students studying at the University of Sheffield International College, we offer University-managed accommodation at St Vincent's Place. 

Please note: all under 18s are offered University managed residences.

Once you are enrolled on your course, our Central Student Support Team will contact you with more information about the accommodation.

Born in Russia. Made in Sheffield.

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.

St Vincent's Place

Located in the heart of the city, near the main campus and next to the International College, St Vincent’s Place is our new University-managed 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.

Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from the International College.

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at fraudreporting@studygroup.com if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

Important information

All under 18s must live in University-managed accommodation. If you are younger than 18 years old when you start your programme you are guaranteed a room in University Managed Accommodation.

Students who are 18 years old or over are invited to University managed or third party managed accommodation depending on availability. Once students are confirmed on their course they will be sent information on the accommodation available for their intake.
