Enhancing the student experience

⠀Your support means Sheffield continues to be number one when it comes to student life outside of studies. Our vibrant community of student clubs and societies is thriving. The difference these groups make to student wellbeing and personal development is remarkable. Thank you for giving back.

“I see first hand the impact grants for student experience have on our students. For many our sports and societies are a highlight of their time at University with many making memories and friends for life. The Alumni Fund helps us keep these activities inclusive and accessible to all. Thank you for choosing to support our students, it means a lot.”

Wellbeing & Sports Officer, Sheffield Students’ Union

Clubs and societies bring like-minded students together. The friendships forged are so important because they provide a support network for students. The pandemic has shown how these networks help students feel less lonely and isolated. Thanks to you, we’re here for those who don’t feel connected.

SU Activities & Development Officer

I’ve gained so many new skills after taking on roles such as Publicity Secretary and Operations Officer. I’ve learnt how to plan events, manage communications and engage people online. I’ve enjoyed taking responsibility and feel really proud of the work we do helping to eradicate period poverty.

With weekly games and training, being involved keeps me active and fit. I've met loads of people, led training sessions and got involved in activities I wouldn't have otherwise.
