New improved rewards

Step Up is a big thank-you from the University for arriving on campus in green and healthy ways. If you're not yet signed up, download the free BetterPoints app via the buttons below and register with your University of Sheffield email address.

You can earn rewards every time you record a journey to campus on foot, by bike or using public transport - and spend them at 16 catering outlets on campus or donate them to charity!

Sustainability is at the core of the campaign so we are delighted to be working with GeniUS outlets to offer a fantastic new voucher that's great for you and great for the planet. Check out our new rewards:
