Our new self-select process gives you more control over where you live. You can select the location, your preferred accommodation block and even your own flat and bedroom! Are you coming to Sheffield with some friends from your hometown? Simply apply at the same time, and select the same flat – how great is that? When selecting a room if your first choice is not available please consider looking at alternative options, and you can find out more info on these by viewing the 360 degree tours. You might also consider single gender accommodation, as this may provide you with a greater choice. Don't forget - you'll make friends all over the residences, not just in your flat!

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 is available as an option.

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.
