I've chosen my room, and am waiting to sign my contract and pay my deposit.

Your room is secure, and you will be able to sign your contract and pay your deposit after 'A' Level results day on Thursday 16 August. 

We will not be doing this prior to A Level results day as it will be better for you to complete this once you know you are definitely coming to Sheffield. 

Make sure you check your emails after the 16 August to accept your contract offer. It may take a few days to get all the information to you, but your room is secure so don't worry!

I haven't applied for a room yet.

If you did not apply by 31 July, or are coming to the university to study through insurance, adjustment or clearing, applications are now open. 

When you do apply, you will be able to select your preference of room type and location, and will be allocated depending on availability.

Please remember, you are guaranteed accommodation as long as you’ve applied by 31 August 2018.

We are proud to announce that we have LGBT+ accommodation available at Ranmoor/Endcliffe. When you are applying for your accommodation you will be asked if you'd like to live in an LGBT+ flat, with en-suite and shared bathroom options available. Living in this accommodation is by no means compulsory for those who identify, but this option is no longer available.

Families & Couples

Many of our international students bring their families with them to Sheffield and we are here to make your experience of studying at the University of Sheffield with your family as easy and enjoyable as possible.

The University recognises that additional factors need to be taken into account in bringing your family to Sheffield.

There is a wide variety of accommodation for couples and families at The University of Sheffield. The Accommodation Office can provide information about our accommodation and also to help you settle into your new home as a family.

The University Accommodation Services office will give you every possible assistance to find suitable accommodation, but as demand for this type of accommodation is sometimes greater than the number of properties available, the University cannot guarantee that suitable housing will always be found.
