University Lodge, Sheffield is a Freemasons’ Lodge, under the Constitution of the United Grand Lodge of England.

We have a vibrant student membership and are keen to help our younger members develop their interest in Freemasonry and to derive the maximum enjoyment from being a Mason.

As a member of the Universities’ Scheme, we welcome students, staff and alumni of the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

Our Lodge also has members from many other walks of life and of many different nationalities.


On Wednesday 9th April 1919, 64 Freemasons, including alumni of the University of Sheffield and others who worked in the city, gathered in Firth Hall to carry out the Consecration of University Lodge, Sheffield No 3911.

There followed the first Festive Board of the Lodge, at Cutlers’ Hall in Church Street.

On Wednesday 17th April 2019, 100 years and over 900 meetings later, University Lodge, Sheffield is celebrating its Centenary at Tapton Masonic Hall in Shore Lane.

Many things may have changed in those intervening years, but the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth advocated by our Founders continue to be the watchwords of our Lodge today.
