Booking on a tour

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, there will be no tours throughout March and April 2020. We will update this page as new events become available.

Choosing the right campus to visit

We recommend you tour the campus where your course will be taught. This can be found underneath the course title on our online prospectus. If you’re unsure, call us on 0114 225 6464 and we’ll be able to help.

The tour

A student ambassador will meet you at one of the meeting points below. They’ll be wearing a blue t-shirt to let you know it’s them.

Tour Meeting point
City Campus tour City Campus – reception, main entrance
Accommodation tour City Campus – reception, main entrance
Collegiate Campus tour Collegiate Campus - Heart of the Campus


Please arrive at least five minutes before your tour is scheduled to start. If you are late, you may be offered an alternative self-guided tour.

All student ambassadors live and study here so they know what they’re talking about. You can ask them any questions you have about being a student at Sheffield Hallam University.

You will visit all the main areas of the campus during your tour, including the learning centre, gym, students’ union, lecture theatres, catering outlets and classrooms.

The accommodation tour will take you to a range of residences. Though you’ll only be shown around one, your student ambassador will point out the location of others. You can see our full range of residences online.

Our tours are not about any course in particular. To speak to staff or students from the course you’re interested in, book onto one of our open days.

Self-guided tours

If you're unable to attend an open day or student-led tour, you can visit our campuses in your own time by downloading and printing our self-guided tour booklets below.
