Rail and road links

By Rail
Regular inter-city services operate between Sheffield and other main line towns and cities. London (St Pancras) is two-and-a-half hours away by train. Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham are one hour away and Edinburgh four hours.

In conjunction with Creative Sheffield, and East Midlands Trains, we are pleased to offer discount return rail travel on selected services from London St Pancras, Manchester Oxford Rd, Leicester, Derby, Nottingham and Liverpool.  Please contact Jane at jane.tompkins@marketingsheffield.org or telephone 0114 201 1024.

Sheffield Station is just a two minute walk away from our City Campus and the nearby Transport Interchange links you directly to our other campus at Collegiate Crescent. As you exit the station, walk past the fountain and cross the road. Follow the walkway towards the city centre and you will see the City Campus buildings just ahead of you.

By Road
Sheffield’s motorway link is the M1 (Junctions 33 and 34). You are recommended to leave at Junction 33 and proceed into the city centre by way of the Parkway (A630).

Sheffield’s National coach service for long distance travel is comprehensive and efficient. The central pick up and terminal point is at the Transport Interchange next to the University campus.
