University of Sheffield International College students

St Vincent’s Place is our dedicated accommodation available for students who will be attending the University of Sheffield International College.

The accommodation is 2 minutes walk from your classes, and you’ll be living with other international students studying at the College - perfect!

St Vincents common room

St Vincent’s Place is located near the main University campus and next door to the International College. The building itself is a beautifully renovated Roman Catholic church, which contains many original features, with a modern twist - there’s a cinema room with comfy sofas, music rooms, social and study spaces, and a range of other communal facilities. 

Students live together in single-sex flats with between four and nine flatmates. Each student has their own bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and shares the communal kitchen and living area with their flatmates.

There is a Chinese oriental store and a Tesco Express near the accommodation, and you’re only a short walk from Sheffield City Centre which has a wide range of shops from stationery stores, clothes shops, food retailers and more! You’ve even got our own Solly Street Cafe just around the corner
