Join a Committee

Next Society Election Fortnight is Monday 20th March to Sunday 2nd April 2017

All Societies elect their main committees in March/April each year so please return to this page for more information nearer the time. If you have any questions in the meantime feel free to contact your Society Coordinator, Tim - society.coordinator@sheffield.ac.uk

What are committee members?

Committee members are the core team of people who run a Society or Working/Representative Committee.

You lead, you decide, you budget, you publicise, you stress (occasionally), you have fun (always), and of course you make Sheffield Students' Union 'number one' in the UK.

What's more, as a committee member you may also be able to get your role recognised in the extra-curricular section of your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report). 


Societies are groups of students who enjoy a common interest. Most Sheffield students are involved in societies because they’re the best way to make friends, try new things (or carry on your passions) and guarantee a worthwhile experience.

The Students’ Union is home to well over 300 societies and committees so we hope you’ll find one (or a few!) that suit the way you want to spend your free time.

You can join societies at any time throughout the year, just get in touch!
