Community Living & Covid -19
Living in University Accommodation is a great opportunity to be part of a dynamic and diverse community. We hope you will love your time here and making the most of the opportunity to build healthy relationships, develop life skills, and to get involved in an exciting programme of events and activities
Residence Life host the Community Living campaign throughout the first few weeks of each year. This campaign includes promoting the ‘Our Community’ poster and the RLMs completing Community Living Agreements with residents. The aim is to promote a sense of responsibility for the community in which you live. University accommodation should be a welcoming and safe community, so please be aware of how your actions can affect others. In return we encourage others to consider how their actions might impact on you.
You will also discuss the expectations in regards to your conduct and any Covid-19 requirements. Please familiarise yourself with the University’s ‘Your Community: Your Responsibility’ page. These expectations apply to your conduct on campus, in the residences, and in the wider community. The latest updates on how Covid-19 will affect students in our accommodation will be also published on this page.
If you become symptomatic, you are required to email us at residencelife@sheffield.
There are rules to living within University accommodation, such as keeping the noise down between 11pm and 7am, or all the time during exam weeks, and requirements of good conduct as a student at The University. During the Community Living conversation, you may discuss and agree on any other 'house rules'. For example, some flats don’t mind residents having overnight guests, others prefer that residents are warned so they can expect to bump into a stranger in the kitchen! The aim of the conversations is to promote open communication to hopefully minimise future conflict.
If you have concerns that are not covered here and you would like more information, please contact us at residencelife@sheffield.
