Sheffield's known as a great northern city – and we're proud to be in Yorkshire.
But look on a map and you'll see that we're in the heart of the country, in Britain's fifth largest city. Major road and rail networks link Sheffield directly with the rest of the country and the city itself is served by excellent bus and tram services. For example, we're just two hours from London and less than an hour from Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester and York by train.
We have two campuses, so please check where your event is before travelling. At our undergraduate open days we run a free shuttle bus between the two campuses, which takes about 10 minutes.
Our City Campus is located opposite Sheffield train station and next to Sheffield bus station – as you walk out of the station you are right in the middle of our campus.
