Stay Safe in Sheffield this Intro
Sheffield is considered one of the safest major cities in the U.K, but here are some top safety tips to ensure your Intro Week is remembered for all of the right reasons.
Make sure you’ve got a plan for getting home, look after your friends on a night out, and inform staff if you see anything that makes you uncomfortable.
Getting Home Safely: Safe Taxi Scheme
If you have no money after a night out, call City Taxis and quote the Safe Taxi Scheme. Give the driver your U-card and then pay for the taxi in the SU the next day. City Taxis: 0114 239 3939.
Getting Home Safely - Women's Mini Bus
Running 7 nights a week during term-time the Women's Minibus takes you from outside the Students' Union building, Western Bank Library or Information Commons, directly to your door (max 2 miles from the Students' Union), for just £1.50. Visit sheffieldsu.com for the latest operating times.
