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.
