Cycling is a good way to help you keep fit and can be quicker than travelling by car in congested conditions. It is on the increase with more people cycling to and from the campus and we aim to make it as easy as possible to get here by bike.

Cycle Parking

There are over 1,400 cycle parking spaces both on the main campus and at the residences. We are always looking at new opportunities to improve parking so we will be putting in more Sheffield stands, lockers and secure stores.

It is important to keep your bike secure, South Yorkshire Police offer advice on how to store your bike and what types of lock to use.

Cycle Hut

The Cycle Hut provides free bike checks and at-cost servicing and repairs for staff and students. It is funded through the University Transport Policy with services provided by ReCycle Bikes. Click here to visit Cycle Hut on Facebook.

University Cycle Forum

The University Cycle Forum was set up to enable cyclists to give feedback and input into future priorities. It is represented on the Sheffield City Council's Cycle Forum, helps to organise group rides and can offer additional advice on cycling.

Finding your way

The University works with Sheffield City Council to improve routes and signage for cyclists and we have produced the university cycle map. You can get a copy from EFM Helpdesk, the Students' Union and many Porters Lodges. Alternatively email the Travel Planner who will send you one.


Bike sale: We hold a popular student bike sale twice a year with ReCycle Bikes. Keep an eye out for details as they always sell fast!

Donate: Do have a bike in your shed or garage that you don’t use any more? Our partners ReCycle Bikes take old bikes, recondition them and sell them to students.

Pool Bike

We have a folding pool bike for members of staff to get around campus.The pool bike was the start of a cycling revolution which has improved things for the Commercial Services team. Inspired? If you want to try the pool bike yourself, contact
