Orientation 2022

Our Orientation events and activities are designed to give you a little extra time to settle into life in Sheffield and the University. They’re available to both new and existing students, UK and international.

Second Semester Orientation 2022

During the week before the start of the new teaching session, we'll be running a number of events to help you settle in. Most of these will be facilitated by our experienced Global Campus Ambassadors, identifiable by their orange ‘Welcome to Sheffield’ tops.

Some events will take place online. For the Global Hangouts online events, if you don't have your University email address yet our Ambassadors will need to admit you to the session – please be patient with them while they let you in. 

Our campus tours are repeated, so you can choose a session that fits with your schedule.

Covid-19

All events will comply with current UK government COVID-19 guidelines. Currently, Plan B regulations have now been relaxed and it's no longer mandatory to wear face coverings. However, in line with University guidance we advise that you continue to wear face masks indoors where practicable.
