Explore our campus

Our student-led walking tours are a great opportunity to visit some of the most widely-used facilities on campus. We’ll take you inside some of our iconic buildings including our award winning Students’ Union, our outstanding library facilities, and some of our larger academic buildings which host lectures, seminars and labs. The tour takes around 90 minutes, and covers an area about a mile across.

A member of our team of student ambassadors will lead your tour. Feel free to ask your tour guide any questions you may have about student life at Sheffield and they’ll do their best to answer, or point you in the direction of further helpful information. A member of staff from the Campus Tour team will also be available on the campus tour stand before and after the tour to answer any other questions you might have.
