Noise and anti-social behaviour

The University operates a 24-hour security helpline which will respond to calls from local residents with concerns about student behaviour in the community. Our security officers will visit student properties to speak to students about their behaviour and can escalate serious or repeat issues to the University's Student Conduct and Appeals team.

Student properties

Smart Move Shefffield is run by the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Students' Union. Properties registered with the service must meet certain standards.

The team can help with issues relating to properties registered with Smart Move. You may need to speak to Sheffield City Council's private sector housing team or waste management services about properties which are not registered with us.
