Ever been caught doing something you shouldn't in University accommodation and were asked to pay a fine? Well they say that every cloud has a silver lining.... You should be pleased to know that all the money that we receive from charging students fines goes to a good cause!
Fines collected from students caught smoking are donated to the Weston Park Cancer Charity, which helps towards pioneering cancer research and improving cancer treatment and care for patients.
All other fines are donated either to the Student Hardship fund for University of Sheffield students, which supports those who are experiencing financial hardship during their studies. We've donated over £4000 to the Student Hardship fund alone! We've also made donations to the Sheffield Scanner appeal, which will help the University of Sheffield to establish a ground-breaking MRI-PET facility and transform our understanding of serious conditions.
