Local History Walk

A sense of belonging

Sheffield is going to be your second home for months, or years, to come. Join us each week for an opportunity to explore more of the city and campus area, learn the fascinating stories behind the buildings and landscape, and make new friends along the way! The walks are led by Dr Tim Cooper, International Student Support Officer and a former teacher of History and Archaeology at the University.

Upcoming walks

The first three walks of the Spring Semester will include sites associated with the early days of the University and the development of Sheffield as a city in the later 19th century. A great way to start getting to know both the University and the city!
