The University of Sheffield International College is proud to present the new St Vincent’s Place accommodation which is scheduled to open in Mid-August. It is fully managed by the University of Sheffield.
St Vincent’s Place, located just 2 mins away from the International College building, is a great fit for international students studying in Sheffield. This striking new development markedly includes a beautifully renovated Roman Catholic church which is a social space for students with a range of communal facilities. St Vincent’s Place offers over 500 fully-furnished and high quality student apartments and studios, not to mention free wifi access.
