The University of Sheffield’s students’ union, which has been refurbished at a cost of £25m, will be officially opened next Thursday.
Guided tours and entertainment will be part of the relaunch of what will be the biggest students’ union in the country.
And Sheffield students maintain that it is the best and most active, having won a number of national awards for improving the student experience in the city. In total, the building accommodates more than 280 student-run activities
The revamped complex, off Western Bank, has state-of-the-art facilities for student services, an amphitheatre-styled space for events in the new Octagon Piazza and more social and study spaces, open for longer.
It contains Sheffield’s newest restaurant, Inox Dine.
University House, which was one of the first glass curtain walled buildings in the world when it was completed in 1963, has now been integrated into the single students’ union.
