About Us

SDP has been ESTABLISHED FOR 25 YEARS. In 1992 Symon Donovan, a former Sheffield City College student believed he could improve the quality of accommodation for Sheffield students and embarked on doing so.

Since then SDP has continued to deliver excellent student accommodation and was awarded the SNUG LANDLORD OF THE YEAR 2017 by Sheffield City Council.

SDP has an exciting and diverse portfolio of excellent student accommodation in great locations that can meet a variety of budgets and requirements so contact us or visit our find accommodation page.
