Sheffield Student Housing Co-operative

Sheffield Student Housing Co-operative (SSHC) is a 5-member housing co-op and one of the UK’s first student housing co-ops. SSHC started organising in 2012 and succeeded in securing their first house in September 2015.

Like Birmingham Student Housing Co-operative, the house was purchased by the Phone Co-op (now part of Midcounties Co-operative) to lease to SSHC.

We aim to help students provide themselves with better, low cost housing by taking landlords out of the equation and owning housing ourselves. 

More info can be found on SSHC’s website, Facebook page and Twitter profile. They can also be emailed via studentcoopsheffield@gmail.com.
