Live Works Urban Room is our exhibition and events space, located on Union Street, in the heart of Sheffield city centre.

Our ground floor space hosts a changing programme of exhibitions, providing opportunities for members of the public to learn and debate about the past, present and future of Sheffield’s built environment.

Our exhibition space is usually accessible to the public from Tuesday – Friday, 12-4pm alongside regular pop-up cafes.

Live Works is the first permanent university-backed urban room in the UK and we lead the national Urban Rooms Network. Our members include community groups, civic societies, other universities and arts organisations. We are part of the Place Alliance, a campaigning organisation that promotes the value of well-designed buildings, streets and spaces that enhance the quality of life for all.
