Campus information

When students join the University of Sheffield International College, they are welcomed into student life at the University. They can join societies, start their own clubs and get involved in campaigning for a better future as an associate member of the Students’ Union. Additionally, the city and everything it has to offer will be easily accessible to them.

The Students’ Union is central to student life in the UK. The University of Sheffield has the best in the UK - it has been voted number 1 in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey every year since 2010. It has it's own bar, cafe and restaurant run by students. It also houses the council that represents student issues - international students even have a dedicated officer.

In 2013, Sheffield students started the ‘We Are International’ campaign, highlighting the importance of welcoming international students to world-leading universities. The award-winning campaign has been taken up across the UK since but Sheffield still leads the way, producing useful videos about visa applications and the popular #standbyme selfie hashtag.


The University of Sheffield International College offers students the opportunity to live in the heart of the city centre of Sheffield. There is also the option to arrange private accommodation. 

All of our residences are within walking distance from the local amenities and the International College. Each residence offers self-catering facilities, although with so many restaurants and cafés students will be spoilt for choice.
