The University campus contains many distinctive buildings, spread over a large part of the south west of Sheffield.
To help you locate and recognise them when you arrive, we have produced an overview of some of the most prominent buildings.
There is a reference for our campus map as well as a link to the Multimap website for each location.
The list is not intended to be exhaustive - if you cannot find the buidling you are looking for, there is an alphabetical list of University buildings on our campus map. You can download this map and our Visitors' Guide using the links at the bottom of the page.
