We’re here to help you find the right activities, societies, sports, volunteering and fundraising opportunities to make your time the best it can be.


Student Societies

With over 350 societies and committees to choose from – every taste and pursuit you can think of is catered for at the SU.

Find a society to begin a new or continue an existing interest, make friends and have some fun...

Representative Committees

Representative Committees promote the views and interests of specific sections of the student membership, and organise activities for these groups.

Working Committees

Working Committees provide services and activities for all students of the University, or which benefit the wider community.

Sport & Fitness

Whether you want to keep your wellness meter topped up, or compete against top teams from other Unis, sport at Sheffield is designed for everyone. Find all the information for all of Sport clubs, plus information about what's on offer at Sport Sheffield. Have a browse to see what you're interested in and get involved.


Sheffield Volunteering

Volunteering is when you take part in activities to benefit someone or somewhere for free. Sheffield Volunteering projects come in all shapes and sizes so there is always something to get involved in, whatever time of year.

Give it a Go

Ever wanted to give something new a go but not sure how? Our Give it a Go programme allows you to try new activities and sports on a pay as you go basis.

The programme runs throughout the year, with many events run by Clubs and Societies. It gives you the opportunity to try something new without having to commit your time and It’s a great way to connect with new friends.


RAG & Bummit

Last year our student committees RAG and BUMMIT raised over £100,000 for charity!

RAG stands for Raising And Giving - we're here to support your fundraising and put on events you can't get anywhere else. Bummit is a student committee in it's own right, linked to RAG through fundraising and organise award winning charity hitch-hikes.

Forge Media

Forge Media is a volunteer run media outlet within the University of Sheffield’s Students Union. Founded in 2008 after the merger of Forge Radio and Steel Press, Forge Media now incorporates the three main outlets of Press, Radio and TV. We are made up of 75 committee members and over 500 contributing members.


The Higher Education Achievement Report is a nationally-recognised, university-stamped, electronic document which records your academic and extra-curricular achievements from day one at Sheffield through to graduation.


There’s lots of sustainable societies at the SU. Meet with some like-minded people, learn more about and help with projects and campaigns like #RenewableRevolution, Sustainable Diets and Zero Waste. Get Involved to help the environment, influence change with a big impact!
