We know that many of you will have questions about what to expect from university life living in accommodation this year so we have several videos that you can watch below to help answer any of your questions or concerns.

There are 6,000 students living across our residences, in modern apartment blocks, flats and houses, providing a range of self-catered room types, including shared bathroom, deluxe, studios, and en-suite rooms. We provide the largest and the best student community in Sheffield so you won't find this experience anywhere else.

By choosing University accommodation, you will become part of a supportive, fun, and vibrant community. We offer a huge range of exciting Residence Life events and activities on offer throughout the year as part of your accommodation, so you'll never be stuck for something new to try.

All University student residences comply with the regulations set by the Universities (UUK) Code of Practice for the management of Student Housing. You can read all about that at
