If you decide that homestay accommodation isn't for you then there are various alternative options for you to choose from.
You could choose to rent directly from a landlord. This may include renting a flat/studio apartment by yourself or with a friend, or you could rent a room in a house where you will share facilities (such as a kitchen and bathroom) with other tenants.
Another popular option is to rent a room in private student accommodation through an agency. Often this will include renting a furnished room in a shared flat (usually 4-8 people), and many accommodation blocks now offer rooms with en-suite bathrooms, or one bed studio apartments.
There are numerous student accommodation agencies in Sheffield (such as Unite Students) with accommodation in various locations across the city, including some of the options featured below. As The Sheffield College does not have a partnership with Unite (this page is provided merely as an example of the type of accommodation available) students will be responsible for arranging their own accommodation through whichever private company they choose.
Remember, if you decide to rent privately (whether through a landlord or an agency) you will be responsible for arranging and paying for your own accommodation during your stay in Sheffield.
