Getting to Sheffield

By Air

With 4 international airports within less than an hour's drive, Sheffield is easy to reach from overseas destinations.  Should you be travelling by air, we recommend Manchester as the most convenient airport for getting to Sheffield.

Manchester Airport, one of the UK's busiest, can be used to get to Sheffield. You need to take the train from the Airport then change at Manchester Piccadilly for a regular rail service to Sheffield. Alternatively, take a taxi from the airport to Stockport and catch a direct train from there to Sheffield.


Leeds Bradford Airport is also well served by European and long haul destinations. Sheffield can be reached by using a taxi service or bus to Leeds and then train to Sheffield.

Nottingham East Midlands receives routes from European and long haul destinations. Sheffield can be reached by road using a taxi service, or take the airport shuttle to East Midlands Parkway and take the train (operated by East Midlands Trains) to the centre of Sheffield

Getting to the Diamond Building


There are taxi ranks at the railway station and beside the City Hall. The journey to the University should only take five minutes, but can take 15 minutes if traffic is heavy. Expect to pay around £5.


Perhaps the easiest way to get around Sheffield is the Tram. You can catch the Supertram to the university campus from Meadowhall, the railway station and the city centre. Both the blue route to Malin Bridge and the yellow route to Middlewood stop at West Street and at the University. The Diamond building is a 2 minute walk from the University tram stop.  

There will be a conductor on the tram from whom you purchase your ticket. A single journey costs £2 and you can pay in cash or by contactless (preferred). A return ticket is £3.70 and a day ticket is £5. You can also purchase tickets using the Stagecoach Bus App but we do not find this easy to use.


A number of regular bus services stop at or near the University. The most frequent of these are the 51, 52 and 95 from the city centre and the 120 from Sheffield Transport Interchange.


A detailed list of all bus services that serve the University campus, their timetables and live departure information can be found by clicking any of the bus stops on the Travel South Yorkshire interactive public transport map.
