Directions from Sheffield Station


Trams link the railway station and the city centre directly to the University. The tram stop is located at the back of the railway station. Trams from the station to the University run on the Blue route (destination “Malin Bridge”).

Trams from the city centre to the University run on both the Blue route and the Yellow route (destination “Middlewood”).

During the day, trams run every 10 minutes (15 minutes on Sundays) from 6.00am to midnight.

To reach the HRI disembark at the ‘University of Sheffield’ stop on Upper Hanover Street. Cross the tramlines, and then the road. After crossing the road, turn left and then immediately right into Leavygreave Road. The HRI is on your right, and can be approached either from Leavygreave Road itself, or from Gell Street, which is the first turning on the right.


Buses to the University are frequent and inexpensive. From the railway station and coach station you can take the number 60 directly to the University. Other buses from the city centre include the 51 and 52.

Parking on campus is limited, so if you plan to drive to the University please arrange parking with your hosts in advance. This helps us ensure you find a convenient location. We recommend that, unless you know the city well, when travelling from the north, east and south you should approach Sheffield by the M1 (and M18 if necessary). From the west, use the A57 Snake Pass via Glossop. The recommended main routes to and from the University are indicated on the Central Sheffield map.
