Monday 14 September saw the reopening of the Students’ Union at the University of Sheffield, along with the restaurants and shops located inside the building. The facility has been closed for the past seven months due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. Now, Bar One, Interval Bar & Kitchen, Coffee Revolution, Our Shop and the SU Shop are open. Covid-19 information signs, one way systems, cashless payments and hand sanitiser stations, and social distancing signage are some of the measures you’ll find on campus.

Here is the SU reopening, in pictures:
