We would like to wish all of our students a restful summer break, as we near the close of this unprecedented academic year.
Student and staff safety remains our top priority.
We have published an update about enrolment for new and returning students, and teaching and learning plans for September 2020.
Please click here to find out more in the latest open letter from the Chief Executive and Principal.
Only a very small number of students still need to continue to come into the College to complete assessments.
Please do not come back onto campus at any point unless you have received an email via your college account asking you to do so.
Please continue to check the website, stay safe and follow government guidelines.
The Sheffield College's City Campus is a great place to be and perfectly located just a 10 minute walk from the city centre, and just 5 minutes from the train station.
Our City Campus boasts a sustainable, glass atrium that is 7 floors high and flooded with natural light. From lunch in The Refectory and with an outdoor terrace overlooking the city, the facilities include an aviation air cabin, catering kitchens, hair and beauty salons, science laboratories, dental technology laboratories, a sports hall, high tech childcare teaching facilities, construction workshops and a children’s nursery.
Many students study catering at City Campus so there’s always something tasty on the menu from ‘Grab n Go’, the student run restaurant The Silver Plate, or something to take away from the bakery.
Free for blue badge holders - no need to book in advance.
Some dropped kerbs.

The Sheffield College is so well serviced by trams we even have a stop named after us! The nearest tram stop to City campus is Granville Road/The Sheffield College.
Trams heading towards Halfway (Blue Line) stop right outside the college, whilst those coming from the opposite direction (heading towards Malin Bridge) stop just across the road.
The Supertram website has more detailed information about times and fares.
Again, being so close to the city centre you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to bus travel to college. The central bus terminal is only a 10 minute walk, and the 120 bus travelling to Crystal Peaks stops just two minutes away.
You can check out the Travel South Yorkshire website for timetables, fares and bus passes.
If you are a student you may be entitled to cheap bus/tram travel within Sheffield - check out our Travel page for further details.
From the M1, take Junction 33 onto the Sheffield Parkway, which merges into the A61.
At the large roundabout, take the third exit sign posted A61. Continue on A61, keeping the train station on your left, until you spot a McDonald's restaurant.
Just before the McDonald's take a left onto Granville Road. The entrance to the college is approximately 150 metres up Granville Road, on the right hand side.
Car parking facilities at City campus are limited to Blue Badge holders only – please visit our page on the AccessAble site for more detailed access information.
The nearest public parking is the Grosvenor Casino (pay and display) – just 5 a minute walk from the college. This can be accessed by continuing along the A61/Queen’s Road and taking the first left onto Duchess Road. Additional car parking can be found at Q-Park, Sheffield Train Station.
