Information and Support

The Sheffield Student Services Information Desk is part of The University of Sheffield’s eco-system of help and guidance that can assist with key areas such as student immigration, searching for accommodation, or even just providing you with a map to get around!

With more than 27,000 colleagues studying along with you and multiple buildings, it would be a shame to miss out on the Student Union’s varied facilities including libraries, research programmes, volunteering opportunities or places to meet with friends.

Learn and Earn

Being a student can get expensive, and that is why many students look for a part-time job to fill in the gaps and give them something to lean on during their studies. 

With this in mind, the Student’s Union have a perfect opportunity for those who are looking to line their pockets.  The ‘Job Shop’ within the Student’s Union is a great place to keep in mind as you can see any jobs that are available within the area and apply for those which will suit you best. 

Meet and Greet

With dozens of nationalities, areas of study, research disciplines, projects, and debates swirling around, going to university is a unique time of your life when you mix with the leaders of tomorrow.

However, this can be daunting, which is why the Student Union is a great institution for gathering with friends while meeting and greeting new people at your own pace. 

Food and Relaxation

The View Deli is a prime example of excellent veggie cuisine and a fantastic restaurant to relax with friends.  The Food Shop within the Student’s Union offers a vast array of food and comestibles from every corner of the globe – this is important when you think that we have thousands of students from dozens of countries who want a little bit of home!

Wanting something green?  The New Leaf Salad Bar is the place for you.  Maybe Bar One is more up your street?  With a brilliant burger and an all-round good atmosphere, you’re sure to find the perfect match for your taste buds. 

The Coffee Revolution coffee shop is a café that is run by students. At this café, they pride themselves on purchasing from sustainable, local coffee suppliers, and quality is at the core of what they do.
