Our Students' Union LGBTQ+ committee works to make sure everyone is treated fairly and can join in student life without discrimination.
Members represent Sheffield Hallam on LGBTQ+ issues at national level and help us make the university more inclusive.
It’s also a socially active group. Members meet weekly to create a safe space for you to talk about your own experiences.
Sheffield’s LGBTQ+ community
With two huge universities, our city has an active and friendly community of LGBTQ+ students and allies.
Alongside the Students’ Union, we play a major role in supporting the wider community, supporting big local events such as Pride and Pinknic.
LGBTQ+ student support
If you need one-to-one support, we have LGBTQ+ advisers on hand to help. You can access a range of academic and wellbeing support from the university, as well as independent advice from the Students’ Union.
Our careers service also offers specialist LGBTQ+ support to help you feel confident applying for jobs and getting used to life at work.
Tackling bullying and harassment
We don’t tolerate harassment or abuse of any kind. Our Report and Support service allows you to report anything you experience or witness. You can report anonymously if you want to, and request access to specialist support staff.
Sexuality and gender identity have extra protections under privacy law, and we take our responsibilities very seriously. Anything you disclose to us stays confidential. You can read more about how we use and protect data in our student privacy notice.
