Location, location, location

Based in the heart of the UK, Sheffield is a vibrant, cultural city. Our City Campus is just two minutes’ walk away from Sheffield train station, with excellent transport links to other UK cities and airports. We work in partnership with a wide range of local attractions and can help you put together the perfect itinerary for your delegates. Whether you want to see more of the city, or the Peak District National Park, which is just minutes away. We also work in partnership with a wide range of local hotels, should you or your guests need to stay overnight.

We’ve got specialist experts on hand

As a University, we have access to a wealth of expertise in a diverse range of industries and sectors. We can arrange for leading academics in specific fields to come along during refreshment breaks to network with your delegates, arrange bolt-on sessions or provide additional speakers. We can also facilitate introductions to a wide range of business leaders through our professional networks. Just speak to a member of our team about your requirements.

Your event can benefit from our students’ talent

Our students can help to bring your event to life. Working alongside our professionals, students get the work experience they need to enhance their employability, and your event gets an injection of fresh ideas. Any profits we generate are invested back into the teaching and learning facilities at Sheffield Hallam, which has contributed to the University building some of the UK’s most modern campuses and facilities.

We can help you measure the success of your event

Our specialist research centres can undertake research about your event on your behalf. They can look at the impact of large-scale events, and also evaluate different types of events and their outcomes.

You can join our event community

If you regularly organise events, our Event Management Hub offers professional development in event management and the opportunity to join our event community, a place to share ideas and gain inspiration and resources.

We’re a socially responsible organisation

Sheffield Hallam University is absolutely committed to sustainability and our environment at every level, from our Fair Trade status and our Student Union’s Gold Green Impact Award, to our Yorkshire in Bloom Award and our RIBA nominated Mews Building at Collegiate Campus which has been built with sustainably sourced materials.
