Residence Life 

You didn’t think we just threw 5,000+ people together and hoped for the best, did you? 

Every year, our Residence Life teams put on about 1,000 events and other fun stuff to bring people together. Dance lessons, cultural celebrations, fitness classes, film marathons…all completely free. 

Their job is making life at Uni, and making new friends, as fun as it can possibly be. Experience new things, meet new people and learn new skills. You can even organise your own thing or ask us to add something to the weekly programme.

24/7 wellbeing support 

For many, moving to Uni is their first time living away from home. The realities and complexities of student living can be overwhelming. 

When you need us, our Residence Life Mentors and trained support network are here to help you navigate this scary, exciting time.

The place to come together

Meet for a drink at The Edge, hang out in The Green Room, hire tennis racquets, sunbathe on the lawn or go study by the pond. 

The whole idea behind accommodation is to create a true community, to bring you together so you learn and grow and get the most out of your time in the city. As sales pitches go, we think it’s a pretty good one.

Semester 2 accommodation

Applications for Semester 2 accommodation are now open. We’re pleased to offer a choice of locations and room types across our residences for Semester 2 arrivals in February 2024. We look forward to welcoming you to Sheffield.
