Living and Learning: Events, Sports and Activities

In partnership with the University Student Support Services, the Students’ Union and Sport Sheffield, Residence Life is designed to support your wellbeing and enhance your residential experience.

Our Residence Life team is one of the leading and award-winning student residential support services in the country. We are proud to create an environment for students where students can make friends and learn new skills. 

When you live in University accommodation, there’s always something to get involved with. Residence Life offers a wide range of tailor-made activities, events, sports, fundraising and volunteering opportunities, life-skills sessions and information and awareness campaigns.

Every week you'll have lots of opportunities to meet new people and try new things, from five-a-side football, dance lessons and weekly fitness classes to music lessons, film nights and cultural celebrations.

Only students living in University accommodation have access to our broad range of exclusive activities and opportunities.

Residence Life Mentors

Residence Life Mentors are experienced students who live in the same residences. They are ready to support you during your time in University accommodation. They can help with emotional issues, academic worries, disagreements among flatmates, or if you just need someone to talk to. If they can’t help or don’t know the answer, they’ll signpost you to someone who can.
