Student accommodation over the summer

We have limited self-catering accommodation available during the summer vacation for registered students at the University of Sheffield.

The accommodation is available from Saturday & Sunday 7/8 July to Saturday 8 September 2018 for those students already living in University accommodation.  Any student living in other accommodation would not be able to move into Summer Accommodation until Friday 13 July 2018.  Subject to availability, you can book a room for the duration of this period. 

Unfortunately, we don't offer accommodation at a daily rate.  Applications must be received no later than Friday 25 May 2018, to allow processing and full payment to be made. 

No bookings will be considered for September 2018 arrival.
