Who We Are

Citylife Sheffield Team


We help you to get integrated into your life in the United Kingdom!

In the autumn of 2015, Citylife was founded in a student house in Nottingham, United Kingdom. As international students ourselves, we had the feeling that there was a community for internationals missing. It was our goal to create something unique for every international and integrate everyone in our big Citylife family and the life in the United Kingdom. Whether students need help on what to do in their city, looking for accommodation, cultural experiences, parties or travel opportunities – everyone is welcome at Citylife!

Meanwhile, Citylife has been growing quickly. We are now operating in Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Loughborough, Manchester and Edinburgh. 


Our events and trips are only possible because of our international amazing team. Check out who is part of it below!

City Manager – Paddy

Hola guys, I’m Paddy from Brazil! I’m a Polyglot I love surfing, football and snowboarding.

I have been in England for nearly fifteen years! I originally came to the UK to play football but unfortunately I had to stop, after the news I went to university in Sheffield,  after 3 years I finally found my passion for organising events for internationals.  I’m excited to offer my experience as an international living in Sheffield, and look forward to welcoming you all to my second home.

I have the knowledge to provide you all with the best time in Sheffield, i can’t wait to share more with you guys.

Muito obrigado and see you around! Ciao for now.

Co-founder – Seb

As an international student myself in Brisbane (Australia), Madrid (Spain) and Nottingham (United Kingdom), I saw that being on an exchange and interacting with other internationals is an incredible experience!

Going out, travelling, meeting new people and making friends during your time abroad is amazing and the best thing you can do during your comparably short time in the United Kingdom.

We have founded Citylife UK in order facilitate the entire getting settled process for people from outside the United Kingdom. In addition, we have set ourselves the goal to offer the best social events, activities, trips and holidays for everyone.

Co-Founder – Bobby

Hey guys, I’m Bobby from Yorkshire – Don’t worry, my accent isn’t too strong.

With a background in organising events for International students for over 6 years throughout the UK I was beginning to wonder how I could further my passion in working with International students…which is where Citylife came along.

Combining my love for different cultures, languages, travel and events it became a dream recipe. If you see me around, in person or online don’t be afraid to say hi or as we say in Yorkshire ‘Ey up’.
