What’s it all about?
Congratulations on passing your A Levels and securing your place.
We promise you, THIS is only the beginning of something very exciting – we are extremely excited to welcome you to The University of Sheffield and we wish you a fabulous year ahead.
By choosing University accommodation, you have become part of a supportive, fun and vibrant community of like-minded people. There is a huge range of exciting events, activities and sports on offer for you throughout the year as part of your Residence Life experience, including academic development and welfare support from your Residence Mentors.
This is your Residence Life Portal; a central hub of activity where you can keep up to date with everything you need to know about what’s going on with your accommodation including social events, sporting activities, academic updates and opportunities to get involved in running your own events, allowing you to get some awesome skills to put on your CV
Check in here with us on a regular basis and stay ahead of the game. The Residence Life team is here to make your experience in University accommodation the best one ever! Here’s why…
Activities, events and sport
Accommodation & Commercial Services are working in close partnership with Sport Sheffield and the Students’ Union and we have put together an exciting array of activities, events and sports classes, which will be held at various locations across the University. In addition, there are some amazing opportunities for you to get involved with fundraising & volunteering and make a big difference to your local community. For those of you with a passion for leadership and extra-curricular activities – you can even join in and arrange your own events as part of Residence Life!
Support & conduct
We will be here for you every step of the way whilst you’re living in University accommodation. You will have your very own Residence Mentor, who is an experienced student living within the residences and they will be available and on-hand to provide support. Your Mentor will visit your flat regularly and there will also be duty mentors every evening situated at various points across the University. If you ever have a problem, no matter how small - you’ll always have someone to speak to.
Living & learning opportunities
We want to support you in any way that we can. Residence Life can add to your academic experience and development by offering free study and life skills workshops, guest lectures and other training and development opportunities for you in the residences and across the city. This is a great opportunity to start adding some useful extras to your CV and maybe even your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR) whist having fun networking and meeting new people.
