Health and Wellbeing

Wellbeing is about being in good physical and mental health. Here are some health and well-being resources that might be useful to you.

Mental Health Support



Nightline is a student-run, confidential and anonymous non-advisory listening and information service.

Welfare Committee organise and run exciting campaigns and events in the Students' Union, University and Student Villages to engage with students on a range of welfare issues from housing and budgeting to alcohol awareness and mental health.

Sheffield Mental Health Guide are available whenever you need them – helping you navigate the highs and lows of your mental health journey.

SAMHS is the first point of contact for students to explore a broad range of psychological support needs in a single triage appointment.

Safety Advice



We want our students to have safe nights out so we do the things that ensure you remember them for all the right reasons.

You can get free water from all our bars, we have a zero tolerance towards sexual harassment, and our security team are trained to the highest standards.

How the Safe Taxi Scheme works

Safe Taxi Scheme

If you want to get home safely but haven't got cash on you:

  1. Phone our Safe Taxi Scheme partner ‘City Taxis’ on 0114 239 3939
  2. When the City Taxi arrives, hand your Ucard to the taxi driver and tell them where to take you. No cash necessary!
  3. The next day, come to the Students’ Union Welcome Desk to pay your taxi fare and collect your UCard*
    *Most UCards will be returned within 24 hours, though in some cases it may be up to 48 hours.

How the Women’s Mini Bus Scheme works

Women’s Mini Bus

Running 7 nights a week during term-time the Women's Minibus takes you from outside the Students' Union building directly to your door (max 2 miles from the Students' Union), for just £1.50.
