Sheffield Students' Union

Welcome to the number one students' union in the country. Our purpose is to represent, support and enhance the lives of University of Sheffield students.

Students' Union Jobs

Our students regularly vote us the best Students' Union in the UK. This success comes from years of courageous investment into our services and facilities. We have an annual turnover of some £11m and employ upwards of 800 people, with thousands more involved as student leaders and volunteers.

With all kinds of student groups working around this issue, and many sustainable initiatives within the SU, there are lots of different ways you can get involved...
