University of Sheffield Key Collection

We hope you’re looking forward to coming to Sheffield but we know that you’ve probably got lots of questions too. Find out everything you need to know about moving into University accommodation, from what to bring to how to get here.


The pre-arrival accommodation E-induction is available for students who are moving in during September and February. The E-induction is accessed through MUSE, once you have accepted your accommodation contract.

Everything you need to know

The e-induction contains important information about your move to Sheffield, including where you’ll need to go to collect your keys, the teams who are here to help you during your stay, health and safety advice and lots more.

Your arrival time slot

Most importantly, the e-induction enables you to choose a time slot for arriving and collecting your keys over Intro Weekend – this is when most students arrive in Sheffield and move into their accommodation.

How to access your e-induction

When you accept your accommodation contract, you’ll be emailed your own personalised username and password to enable you to access the e-induction.
