Know where to get help
Hallam Help is our first line support service. Contact the support team, look for answers to common questions and book sessions with specialist advisers.
Find your Student Support Adviser
On arrival to Sheffield Hallam, you are allocated a named Student Support Adviser (SSA) who will work closely with your Academic Adviser and Employability Adviser to provide a seamless support offer. Meet our advisors.
Take harassment awareness training
All Hallam students need to take the Tackling Harassment course. You can take the course online in your own time.
It covers a range of topics, including:
- what counts as harassment
- what to do if you witness or experience harassment.
Safety and incident reporting
If you see or experience sexual violence, harassment, abuse or hate crime, use Report + Support to report it.
You can do this anonymously if you want, and you can also ask for a support officer to contact you.
To find Report + Support in a hurry, search 'Hallam Report and Support' or go to shu.ac.uk/myhallam.
Make a note of shu.ac.uk/wellbeing. You can book group and one-on-one support sessions here, and access lots of free self-help tools.
If you have a disability or a physical or mental health problem, you can get specialist support. This could include a learning contract, software or equipment, or funding from the University or the Government.
Register with the disability support team to explore your options.
Visit our student support page for more information and to book an appointment with us.
