From the train station

Sheffield University is a 25 min walk (1.2 miles) from the station.

Alternatively, you can take the Blue Supertram from Sheffield Station-Hallam University to University of Sheffield. The tram stop at the train station is accessible directly at the east end of the station overpass. It comes every 10 minutes and please make sure you have £1.60 in cash for the fare (no need to have the exact change).

You can also pick up a taxi by the rotary outside of the station.


Sheffield is easily accessible from the M1 (J31), and from the A1 (connects via the M18).

Information on visitor parking is available on the University Parking Services webpage. Alternatively, see the Sheffield Council website for on-street and multi-storey parking.


Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster is around 30 minutes away by car.

Manchester, Leeds/Bradford and East Midlands airports are all about an hour’s travel time from Sheffield. Manchester airport is served by many domestic and international carriers and has a direct rail link to Sheffield both day and night.

Both London airports (Heathrow and Gatwick) are reasonably accessible by rail with just one change of train. We recommend you to allow at least four hours travel time between either of these airports and Sheffield.
