University of Sheffield Global Campus runs a programme of social activities every Christmas, Easter and Summer vacation for students who stay in Sheffield over the holidays. Meet up with friends, or just come on your own and meet new people! Our Global Campus Ambassadors will be at all the events to help introduce people to each other, so don't be afraid to show up on your own :)
