About Us

Students' Union Building

Sheffield Students' Union exists to provide support, representation, facilities, services, entertainment and activities to students studying at the University of Sheffield.

We’ve been rated the best Students’ Union in the UK by the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for eight years running. Our students voted us best Students’ Union in the UK for the fourth year running in the National Student Survey 2015 With a whopping 95% overall satisfaction. Plus we’ve got a Gold award in the National Students’ Union Evaluation Initiative scheme.

There’s a million reasons we’re award-winning. We’ve got a fantastic, modern building featuring cafes, shops, bars, an advice centre and an activities & sports zone where students can join over 300 sports clubs and societies. There’s something different happening in the SU every day; from club nights to film screenings, live music, theatrical performances and fascinating talks.

We’re an organisation run for students, by students. We have eight Students’ Union Officers annually elected by the study body to direct the SU and represent its students. The Students’ Union offers the opportunity for students to get involved and make their issues heard - a collective voice of over 27,000 people.
