To register a property with us, it does not require accreditation, but where the property does have one of the following we will display this on the website. The four accreditations you might see are as follows:

UUK (short for Universities UK) – Members of the code must be a University, and must meet the terms of the code of practice which includes one for accommodation. The University of Sheffield University accommodation falls under this code of practice.


National Code – A voluntary code for large development student accommodation where the providers meet a code of standards. For further information, click here.




Snug – A scheme run by Sheffield City Council to approve and inspect student accommodation. Smart Move Sheffield requires all advertised properties to be Snug-approved. You can find the Property and Management Standards hereResident Owner properties are not required to be Snug approved.
