Information for landlords

We have an online database, Sheffield Hallam Studentpad, of registered private sector properties. Agents/Landlords can register on there to advertise accommodation and properties available within Sheffield.

What can I register?

Private sector properties

Houses, flats, apartments and bedsits available for groups or individuals.

Private halls of residence

We class any property with over 20 rooms as a hall of residence. Any hall of residence where we do not allocate 100% of the bed spaces can register.

Resident Landlord

Where the landlord lives at the property eg bed and breakfasts, guest houses and people looking for lodgers.

Registration and Requirements

Register on the Sheffield Hallam Studentpad database and follow the instructions on screen.

The advertisement fee for each type of property registration is included on the registration site. Advertisement fees can be paid to Accommodation Services by credit/debit card over the phone on 0114 2254504/5, in person at the Accommodation Services office or by downloading and returning the credit/debit card mandate card payment form (PDF, 91KB) by post or fax (please do not return payment forms by email). Adverts last for one year.

Please note - only private sector properties that have been vetted by Sheffield City Council via the snug scheme are advertised on the Sheffield Hallam Studentpad website. Resident landlord properties do not require a snug inspection.
