Welcome to Give it a Go!

Give it a Go is an events programme full of one off activities for you to try while you are a student here in Sheffield. All the activities work on a pay as you go basis, you must buy your ticket in advance online or from the Students’ Union Box Office. Once you have bought your ticket just turn up on the time and date stated and have fun! Many of our events are run by Clubs and Societies, so it gives you the opportunity to try something new without having to commit your time. Our programme is broken down into: Sports; Creative; Music and Dance; Mind, Body and Soul; Skill and Training; Languages (where you can join one of our many 5 week language courses); and Day Trips (visit a new destination in the UK each Saturday and Sunday).


Give it a Go gives you the chance to try new things, meet new people, learn new skills and visit different places. Best of all, if you live in University managed accomodation and have a Residence Life (ResLife) card you can get £2 off everything you see in the Give it a Go programme that is priced £2.50 and above. You can also get a massive £5 off every day trip. To get your discount show your ResLife card at the Box Office when you buy your tickets.



Join in our free photo competition which runs each programme for a chance of winning discounts off your next Give it a Go! All you need to do is tweet your favourtie pictures taken at any of our events  to @SUGiveitaGo and use #igaveitago or send them to us on Facebook. We will choose the best photos, then give fans of Give it a Go the chance to vote on their favourite picture.

Brought to you in partnership with your SU Box Office, Give it a Go and Residence Life.

Calling clubs & societies

Have an idea and want to run your own Give it a Go event? Well this is how. Many of the Give it a Go activities are run by clubs and societies as it's a great way to generate income for your student group, recruit new members, gain publicity for your club/society and gain leadership and planning skills.

If this sounds like something you want your club or society to get involved with, just fill out the Give it a Go submission form which opens at various times of the year for our different programmes. Please read our guide on how to Run a Give it a Go including all of our terms and conditions. Any questions about running a session, send us an email on giveitago@sheffield.ac.uk.
