Reasons to love your Students' Union
When you start at Sheffield Hallam, you automatically become a member of the SU. Membership is free and comes with huge benefits, from events to opportunities to shape your university experience or become a student rep.
Choose your squad
Joining an SU society is the perfect way to meet people with the same interests as you – or to try something completely new. We have over 100 student-run societies covering interests including rock music, Harry Potter, campaigning, scuba diving and cheerleading. If you can't find one you want, we’ll help you start your own.
Our students spend over 15,000 hours each year volunteering through the Students' Union. It's a chance to take on experiences that will stay with you – and impress potential employers. The SU has a wide range of volunteering opportunities from one-off to weekly activities. There's something for everyone to get involved in.
