Accommodation and moving

Make your accommodation arrangements and get ready to move in.

Key tasks

Apply for accommodation

If you haven't already, you can still apply for University accommodation. We offer lots of options to suit different needs and budgets.

You can see inside our halls and find out how to apply on our accommodation pages.

Arrival slots

If you are in halls of residence, look out for an email inviting you to book an arrival slot. You can also book a slot through our accommodation portal.

Booking a slot is important, as moving in days get very busy. Sticking to your slot helps control crowds around halls and traffic around the city.

Getting to campus

If you will be commuting to campus, make sure you know the route and how you plan to travel. Check our travel tips and building locations.

You can also join our Facebook commuter group to share tips with fellow commuters.

Council tax discounts

Depending on your living arrangements, you might be eligible for a council tax discount. Check Sheffield Council's discounts and exemptions page.

You will need to provide proof of your student status to get a discount. You can get this after you enrol. Look out for instructions in your enrolment confirmation email.

Quarantine and self-isolation

Most international students arriving in September 2021 will need to self-isolate for 10 days on arrival in the UK. For more information about this and the support provided during self-isolation view our accommodation on arrival page.
