Helping University of Sheffield students rent houses and flats in the private sector.
Sheffield has lots of private rented accommodation which offer alternative accommodation to the University village complexes. While you can re-apply to keep your room or flat in one of the villages, there are also a number of other options including; self-contained flats/studios to let, houses for rent suitable for groups of friends wishing to move in together, rooms to rent in shared houses, accommodation with a resident owner, rental properties suitable for students with disabilities and accommodation for student families or couples.
Finding accommodation to rent
Finding a place to rent in the private sector is simple with propertywithUS. Search the Housing Finder to see all the currently available rental property. Drop into the propertywithUS shop in the Students' Union Building and ask an adviser for help, or relax with friends on the sofa and use the iPads to share ideas and search for rental accommodation.
Feel free to browse through our pages which are packed with useful information and advice about house hunting and renting houses and flats in Sheffield.
