Sheffield College is a further education (FE) college in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom. It was formed by the merger of six FE colleges in 1993. Its centres are Sheffield City College (in the city centre, formerly Castle College), Hillsborough College (which replaced Loxley College in Stannington, and Parson Cross College in 2005), Norton College and Peaks College.

The Sheffield College also hosts The Online College, offering a range of online professional development and academic courses.

Business Gateway is the employer facing arm of the College. In 2009, Skills For Business and the Business Development Unit, which organises Train To Gain and Apprenticeships, came under the banner of the Business Gateway. Skills for Business centres, at Hillsborough Barracks and The Source, offer IT training courses for adults.

In late 2008, the Sheffield College bid for, and gained, a £300k MoleNET project. The following Autumn, both a collaborative bid with six local schools for £237,500 and a £40,000 MoLeNET Academy bid were successful.

The college is one of the sponsors of UTC Sheffield, a new university technical college which is opening in September 2013.

The college is a member of the 157 Group.
