Hello and a BIG WELCOME to those of you who will be living with us in the University accommodation! Residence Life is here to support you in many different ways throughout your time living with us, specifically in my role I'm responsible for Student Support & Wellbeing - what this means is:
That I manage a team of our Residence Life Mentors - of which you'll definitely get to know one or two (or more!) of them during the year.
That I'm available to residents by email, phone, and Google Meet - to discuss any struggles / concerns / questions that you may have during your time living with us, I work closely with other support teams at the University and will point you in the right direction for accessing support that you may need.
Ultimately, I'm here to support you and other residents so that you all get to enjoy your time living with us, to learn and grow, and to do what you are here to do - study!

Please get in touch with us if there is ever anything that you need help with, big or small.



Student Support & Wellbeing: 

A team of knowledgeable and experienced Student Support and Wellbeing Officers (SSWOs) are available to advise and signpost residents on a wide range of student related matters. SSWOs have received rigorous training including but not limited to Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, Sexual Violence Liaison Officer training, and Mental Health First Aid. They lead teams of Residence Life Mentors, experienced students who deliver a peer mentoring scheme across Ranmoor/Endcliffe and City. If you have any questions or concerns you'd like to discuss, email residentsupport@sheffield.ac.uk .
