As an automatic member of the SU we want our students to get the most out of their time at University by activating their membership. We are here to support and inspire them throughout their Hallam journey.

We are all about passion, honesty, dedication, innovation and diversity, and put these values at the heart of everything we do for students.

We are located at the University's City Campus, in the iconic HUBS building. Our students can find their feet in Sheffield and explore spaces across campus, including our student bar. They can join a society and make friends for life doing the things they love, or jump into something completely new with our Give it a Go programme! They can be the difference in their community by joining one of our volunteering projects and attend our FREE skills sessions to boost their employability. Our members can also access FREE confidential support via our Student Advice Centre - here for you when things don't go to plan.

Accessing our services - the HUBS is closed until further notice

The HUBS is closed until further notice. However, we still have opportunities available that you can get involved in from Give It A Go trips, volunteering tasters and loads more. You can still access our services and some activities online, as we have made sure that you have plenty of ways to access our services and make friends. You can contact our staff and officers and get involved in our fun activities to make sure you're getting the most out of your time with us. Once the HUBS reopens, you must use the booking systems provided, wear a face covering and follow the one way systems in place to help keep everyone safe.

COVID 19 update: Room bookings and walk-in spaces are not currently available. Access our services online.
