Students’ Union Building Opens

We were delighted to attend the opening party of the renovated Student Union facilities at the University of Sheffield last night (Thursday 24th).

Guests were guided around the building and treated to a series of portrayals of University life over the last century; this included a re-enactment of the first mixed Student Dances (above). After a performance by singer Mary-Jess Leaverland, a remarkable Sheffield University Student who won a Chinese version of the TV show the X-factor, Paul Bromfield MP formally opened the building.

University House, which was one of the first glass-curtain-walled buildings in the world when it was opened in 1963, has been given a complete makeover inside and out by contractors Balfour Beatty with Bond Bryan acting as architects and interior designers. The project is part of the University’s commitment to offering the very best facilities to students and staff.
