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.
A Students' Union run by students for students formed in 1906. Our original building was donated 'as a personal gift to the students of the University, present and future' by the philanthropist J.G. Graves.
Purpose, Vision, Values
We promise our students the best university experience: top quality education, life-changing opportunities, and experiences that liberate and support them for the best possible future. All within a strong Students' Union run by and for 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.
Here at Sheffield SU we hold sustainability as a core value in all our work. We try and make sure that we are making sustainable decisions in our everyday activity. 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...
