Time for a Refresh
Refresh Week marks the start of a new term and an opportunity for you to get involved in so many different ways.
Whether it’s discovering a new hobby or sport, broadening your food palette, or just stocking up on freebies, we’ve got a host of events, activities, and opportunities for you to enjoy. It’s never too late to get involved but it’s never too early either. Now is the time to seize your chance and make the most of your student life here!
Whether you're wanting to try something new, or carry on with a previous hobby, Get Involved has hundreds of opportunities under one roof. We've got hundreds of societies to join, a vast selection of sports teams, volunteering opportunities and many local employers from Sheffield.
Explore the fair and find what works for you!
Sheffield has a great selection of student accommodation, with plenty available to suit your needs.
At the SU, we only allow reputable landlords, agents and accommodation providers to attend the fair, so it’s the perfect place to meet the landlords that are in line with our standards. All of the landlords and lettings agents you will meet at the fair have properties that are registered with the Sheffield City Council's SNUG scheme or with Smart Move Sheffield.
Also at the fair will be representatives from the Student Advice Centre, Welfare Committee and Sheffield City Council.
Sunday 16th February 13:00-17:00, Uni Central, Level 4, Sheffield Students’ Union
