Planning your visit

This page contains a variety of information that should be of use when planning your visit to the department of Chemistry. If you have a specific question which is not covered, please email chem.schools@sheffield.ac.uk.

Student numbers

Laboratory sessions can take a maximum of 15 students. The spectroscopic workshops can take a maximum of 30 students. Extra students cannot be accommodated.

Location of events

Laboratory classes and spectroscopic workshops start in the main entrance of the Dainton Building.

Lunch

Participants should either bring a packed lunch or buy lunch from one of the University's food outlets. Packed lunches can be eaten in the Students' Union informal seating areas. Alternatively, a classroom can be booked in the department for younger groups.

Parking

Parking at the University is limited. A mini bus parking permit can be requested for a specific date but there is no guarantee a space will be available. If you would like to apply for a parking permit please let us know upon receipt of the confirmation form for your session.

The parking space will be a 15 minute walk from the Dainton building so allow for this in your timing.

Photography

Photographs may be taken of the students working in the laboratory to be used for future publicity. If you would prefer photographs not to be taken, please inform us via email at chem.schools@sheffield.ac.uk at least two days before your session.
