Travel information

The easiest way to travel to campus from Sheffield train station is by tram. Trams regularly run between Sheffield railway station and the University of Sheffield tram stop, from which is a 5 minute walk to the Diamond building. For those arriving by car, Durham Road Q Park is the nearest car park to campus and spaces can be booked in advance (advised).
