Our Community Living Campaign

Living in University Accommodation is a great opportunity to be part of a dynamic and diverse community. We hope you will love your time here and making the most of the opportunity to build healthy relationships, develop life skills, and to get involved in an exciting programme of events and activities

Residence Life host the Community Living campaign throughout the first few weeks of each year. This campaign includes promoting the ‘Our Community’ poster and the RLMs completing Community Living Agreements with residents. The aim is to promote a sense of responsibility for the community in which you live. University accommodation should be a  welcoming and safe community, so please be aware of how your actions can affect others. In return we encourage others to consider how their actions might impact on you. 

There are some rules to living within University accommodation, such as keeping the noise down between 11pm and 7am, or all the time during exam weeks. There are also some requirement of good conduct as a student at The University in general (more about that here: www.sheffield.ac.uk/sss/student-code-of-conduct ) But there are also some guidelines which you can agree with other residents as part of your Community Living Agreement. Some flats don’t mind residents having overnight guests, others prefer that residents are warned so they can expect to bump into a stranger in the kitchen! Residence Life uses the Community Living campaign to promote these kind of conversations, encourage cooperation and compromise, and hopefully avoiding future conflict. 

Get involved, ask your Residence Life Mentor for further information.
