Welcome to Campus - Your new Engineering Reception

Your Engineering Reception is where you can go to find out more information about your course and other aspects of university life.

Your Engineering Receptions are Open

Department Virtual Receptions

While access is restricted to our academic departments, and particular groups of staff continue to work from home, you will not be able to visit department receptions and student support offices in person. However, our support staff are still available to answer any specific queries you may have.

The majority of student enquiries should be directed to the virtual reception teams - they are the experts on your programme and can help you in the most efficient way. They can offer in-depth virtual consultations on many issues related to your study.

If you are on campus, and you have an immediate need for support, then that is when you should visit our physical Engineering Reception.

We will be operating a paperless services, and so the physical reception will be unable to give or receive any paperwork, including coursework, change of status or extenuating circumstances forms. These must be scanned or photographed by the student and submitted electronically to the relevant department’s contact email address.

If you require wellbeing support, the Faculty of Engineering has its own Wellbeing Advisor, Mick Berry. You can get in touch with Mick on SWSengineering@sheffield.ac.uk or book an appointment to see him.

Please note that the staff on the physical reception points are very experienced and can support many enquiries, but in some cases, they will still need to refer your enquiry to your department's virtual team. For example, questions relating to module availability, programme regulations or assessment progression should be directed to the relevant department’s contact email address.
