Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union

The union, located in the HUBS, is where you can get involved in societies, sports, social events, local volunteering opportunities and use the free advice centre. All our students are automatically members of the Student’s Union so you can come and use their services or get involved with activities straight away. You can also get involved by becoming a student representative, writing for the student magazine, campaigning on student welfare issues and much more. Visit and watch the videos below to check out the great facilities available.


Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union has over 60 different societies and you can join as many as you want. They are a great way to meet new people and try new things, ranging from fun activities to religious, cultural or academic societies. You can even set up your own. Examples include the Islamic Society, Japanese Visual Arts Society, Christian Union, Drama Society and Salsa Society.


Hallam Students’ Union Advice Centre offers free, confidential, non-judgemental and independent advice. You can talk to them about any subject, including problems with your course, housing, bills, funding, tax or employment.


Hallam Union has a café, shop and bar, making it the perfect place to relax after a day at university. They have regular quizzes, karaoke and comedy nights, and the large HD television screen shows sports games. They also run regular events, including trips to the Peak District and other tourist spots.


There are many different volunteering opportunities through the Students’ Union allowing you to get more involved in local Sheffield culture. Options include working with children, young people, adults and people with disabilities in a variety of different fields such as sports, drama, art, multimedia and music.
