Sustainable travel

The University of Sheffield is committed to sustainable travel and seeks to promote alternatives to one-person-one-car commuter travel where possible.

We hope you find these pages useful when making travel choices, whether for business, commuting or recreational journeys. If you require help with transport information or travel advice, contact us on or 0114 222 9056.

The Environment Team is responsible for developing and implementing the University's Transport Policy. This includes parking policies and promoting sustainable forms of transport. Every two years we do a staff and student travel survey - click here to read a summary of our 2019 findings.

All income generated from car parking is ring-fenced and reinvested into car park management and sustainable transport initiatives.
