Pool table - two students playing

Nine Residence Life Mentors living in Ranmoor/Endcliffe university accommodation at The University of Sheffield kindly volunteered to share a week in their life of lockdown. They filmed across the week showing what they are doing to adapt to their new routines.

We have everyones safety at the forefront of everything we do. All our Residence Life Mentors in this video live in the same house. They all kept 2 metres of all the public during any outdoor activities and we are actively updating our students and staff on the current coronavirus updates.
