5 months ago in Accommodation
Your student may have only just moved in, but landlords often pressure students to make choices early about their accommodation for second year. It is important to know that there is more good quality student accommodation than there are students in Sheffield, so your son or daughter shouldn't rush to make a decision.
However, if they are concerned or would like to get a head start and see what is out there, then in late October and November our Smart Move campaign will begin.
We will host a Smart Move Housing Fair in the Students' Union Building on Wednesday 14 November where students can come and meet landlords and find out what options there are in the private rented sector. They can also talk to the Smart Move Sheffield team, who will help students find good quality accommodation in the private sector, that has been registered with the University.

Returning to University accommodation
It is also important that your son or daughter knows they have the option to return to University accommodation again in any year of their degree. We will be running an accommodation offer for students who return to live with us, keep your eyes peeled for more information in the coming months.
There are University owned houses as well as apartments, so students can live with their group of friends in the style of accommodation they prefer. You can rest assured knowing that if they prefer, students can stay exactly where they are or choose another University accommodation property to live in next year, with all bills included and Residence Life activities and support right on their doorstep.
