Introduction to Safe Sheffield

Sheffield is reported to be the safest large city in the UK, but like any big city anywhere in the world, it is not crime free.

Safe Sheffield is a city-wide initiative to help students in Sheffield stay as safe as possible whilst they are living and studying here. Covering everything from burglary to safety after dark, and from sneak theft to recognising online scams, we want to keep you informed on the best ways to keep your stuff and yourself safe.

Safe Sheffield is a University of Sheffield scheme and has been developed in association with Sheffield Students’ Union, Sheffield Hallam University and South Yorkshire Police.

Hate Crime

A hate crime is any crime that is targeted at a person because of their race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. This can include abuse, name calling, assault, blackmail, harassment, intimidation, bullying or exploitation. Let people just be.

Be Drug Aware

Do you know about all the unpleasant and potentially deadly things recreational drugs can be cut with? How about how to spot the signs of problematic drug use? Would you know where to get help if you thought either you or a friend was developing a problem with drugs?

If you’re worried about your own or someone else’s drug use, we want you to know where you can get help and support. Know the risks. Know the signs. Known there is help. Be drug aware.


Choose to protect your money and identity from fraudsters. Choose to spot dodgy emails and fake job adverts. Choose not to be caught out by a scam. Choose online safety.
