The 2018 conference takes place in Heart of the Campus, Collegiate Crescent, Sheffield, S10 2BP. Here’s a map of the university’s Collegiate Crescent campus.

For the 2018 conference, we have a dedicated accommodation page. A special allocation of accommodation has been secured with a variety of accommodation providers across the city at negotiated rates. Go to the D4H Accommodation page for more details.

The following hotels are some suggestions, but please use the link above or contact for assistance in securing the best rates. You can also arrange a discount on East Midlands train services between London and Sheffield. There is no parking on campus, and on-street parking is very limited. If you are driving, we recommend that you start your day at City Campus if possible, as parking in the city centre is much easier than at Collegiate Campus. We have parking discounts at two city centre car parks.
