The Student Union is the centre for student services and activities throughout the university. As well as the general shops and a bank, the Union contains a Student Advice Centre providing support and a sympathetic ear to any student in difficulties. There are also several food and drink outlets. After stopping at the Copy Shop to get your essay printed, or the Jobshop for some advice on part time work in the city or arranging a placement, you can head over to Bar One to have a drink with your mates and watch the sports on its big screen TVs. Students are offered a lot of extracurricular activities. More than 250 societies meet around the campus and city, including Creative Writing, War Games, Knitting, faith-based groups, and a large Sports Committee. Besides this there are RAG (‘Raising and Giving’ events throughout the year to encourage students to raise money for charitable causes. Past events have included a treasure hunt, bungee jump and night hike. Students in Sheffield will also enjoy the relatively low cost of living, compared to other major UK cities.
