Accommodation: Apply through SHU
Needing Accommodation? First year? Returner? International? Apply through SHU!
Whatever your accommodation needs, applying through us comes with a whole host of advantages. Here are some of the main perks!
We allocate a room to suit YOU!
When you apply through us, we look at your application and find a room that will suit your individual needs. First year? You'll be with other first years. Post-grad? We'll place you with people in the same position.
You'll always be placed with other Hallam students, and we keep an eye on things such as the courses of your flatmates and gender-mix, to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable.
Something specific you want us to know about when we choose your room? Maybe you need a lower floor, a smaller flat or to live with mates? You can let us know when you apply and we'll always consider your requests when we allocate. We always aim to tailor the room to suit your needs!
Guaranteed place in halls
Live at the heart of uni life in dedicated student accommodation and a guaranteed place in halls in your first year. All our halls are in popular student areas near our campuses and most are less than a 10 minute walk from your lectures.

Moving in to halls can be daunting but we're here to support you throughout your journey. If you are having problems settling in then the following may help:
