  • Sheffield University is well connected to Manchester Airport. Manchester Airport is served by many domestic and international carriers and has a regular, direct rail link to Sheffield.

  • Manchester, Leeds/Bradford and East Midlands airports are all about an hour's travel time from Sheffield.

  • Sheffield-Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster is around 30 minutes away by car.

  • Both London Heathrow and Gatwick airports are reasonably accessible by rail with one or two changes of train. We recommend you to allow at least four hours travel time between either of these airports and Sheffield.

  • If coming from a UK location, we recommend travelling by train. Car parking is very limited around the university. Check with your hotel if they are able to provide parking.
