I would say start ASAP. If you leave it later there will still be stuff available, but obviously the better properties go first. There's no harm in starting now and getting an idea of prices and locations. if you're both going to University of Sheffield, the best locations to start looking are Broomhill, Crookes, Crookesmoor and City Centre.

You can find information about when to look for private accommodation on our website at http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/propertywithus/looking. Since you are a couple, we would advise that you start looking very early for accommodation. Although there is a generally a surplus of private accommodation, there is high demand for student properties for couples.

You can search for properties on our housing finder: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/propertywithus/housingfinder

Good luck with your search- we look forward to seeing you in September

Hello all! I am a 21-yr-old English grad applying (perhaps a little late) to the iSchool, where i'm pondering the Digital Library Management and Information Systems courses.

I'm also going to apply for the postgrad scholarship mentioned above. I'm really wondering, what are the chances of actually winning one? I have a 1st Class B.A. and meet two widening participation criteria (three if I went for Information Systems as I would be a woman taking a CS course) I wish I could read about previous winners and thus see what my comparative chances are...

Hi! I'll be starting an MA at the university of Sheffield in September and I'm looking for an advice on university accommodation. I read on the website that there are 42 and 51-weeks contracts, which one is the best? I'm Italian, so I won't have any other place to go during the summer...but since during those holidays I'll be working on my dissertation I was wondering if it is required to stay close to the university or if I can go back to Italy and work from there.
Thank you in advance

Hi!
My boyfriend and I are both coming to Sheffield in September for our MSc so we have a couple doubts, first I would like to have more information about accommodation for couples, the web page is not really clear about the one room flats available and how would be the selection process, we are a mature couple (27) and we want to stay at a quiet place away from noisy undergraduates.
