When you collect your keys, you'll be given a blue drawstring bag with all sorts of goodies in. Find your yellow Residence Life key fob glued onto the first page of the Intro Special booklet. Keep this safe as you'll need it access all the fun stuff we have on offer for you throughout the year!
The key fob represents your membership to Residence Life. When you move into University accommodation, it can be a daunting experience and, for many students, it is the first time they are moving away from home. Don’t worry though, this is why the Residence Life team are here, to support the students living in University accommodation!
There are two main ways in which Residence Life supports students…
Support & Conduct
We have Residence Life Mentors, who are experienced students living in the residences. They are on hand to provide support through regular flat visits and daily drop-ins. They are here to help with any problem big or small, whether it is relating to welfare support or misconduct. They report everything back to us so there will always be a staff member on hand to deal with serious incidents.
Engagement & Development
We believe that University accommodation is not just a place to live but it is an experience, a community to feel part of and an opportunity for personal development. With this in mind, we have an exciting programme full of things you can get involved in throughout the year. Not only do we offer activities in the residences exclusive to you but we also work in partnership with Sport Sheffield and the Students’ Union to broaden our offerings and provide you with free or discounted sports sessions, day trips and more!
When you move in to your University accommodation, you’ll make a one-off community contribution, which is included in your rent. This is your investment into the programme and you receive your key fob in return, which will provide you with access to all of the following…
If you're having trouble locating your key fob or you think you may have misplaced it, speak to your Residence Life Mentor or email email@example.com
