Inox Dine – one facility for all

Inox Dine was created to provide a space where University, students and community activities can interact. The restaurant and meetings spaces offer many opportunities for local residents and businesses, as well as groups that are connected to University life. We believe the quality of the experience at Sheffield is enhanced because we have spaces like Inox Dine available for everyone.

For the local community we…

…have meeting spaces dedicated to schools outreach activities, giving children a taste of what university life is like and the future opportunities available to them.

…have built strong connections with the local community, such as raising over £1,000 for The Children’s Hospital Charity and supporting RAG activities.

…give away the proceeds from the cost of each Breakfast Networking Club to a charity chosen by our guest speaker.

For the University community of staff and students we…

…have successfully created networking opportunities between staff, students and local SME’s with our monthly Inox Dine Breakfast Club. This has provided a platform for local companies and Gateway academics to meet and host visiting partners and present on their areas of expertise.

….regularly provide a home to a wide range of academic conferences and alumni events.

….have also attracted training bodies, including several who have never used venues outside of London; now we are their preferred venue of choice.

….provide a suitable and quiet meeting place for academics, students and staff to enjoy lunch or a hot drink, especially to host external visitors, potential partners or funders.

…..provide students with a great facility to hold their events and graduations, and our chefs provide support to the Students’ Union’s Give it a Go programme.

So, not only is it a fantastic facility for visiting academic staff, examiners, local and international dignitaries, government ministers and our partner organisations, but we are helping to attract investment into Sheffield city, which is important for our students as well as the future of our University.

And don’t forget we support many students with part-time work and apprenticeships by…

…employing 19 students on a casual basis; 15 are our students, who earn as they learn to support their living costs whilst studying. Plus, we have students from Sheffield Hallam University who are undertaking work experience while studying event management.
