Bus

Most buses from other cities in the UK arrive in one of two locations, the Sheffield Interchange or the Meadowhall Interchange. 


From the Sheffield Interchange to cheaply find your way to the University it is recommended to take the 120 bus in the direct of Fulwood (do not get on a 120 bus heading towards Halfway). This is run by two companies, First and Stagecoach however both will take you to the Student's Union. The standard cost for a Student Single Ticket with a Student ID is £1.30 . A comprehensive timetable for the 120 can be found below or with this link: https://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/timetables/sheffield/501.htm 


From the Meadowhall there are several ways to the University, however the simplest is to take a Yellow tram into the city to Cathedral stop and walk along West Street to the University. Alternately you may want to take a train to the city station and then follow the instructions above. The timetable for the Yellow tram can be found here:
