Take the Blue route (destination ‘Malin Bridge’) to the ‘University of Sheffield’ stop, journey time approximately 10 minutes.

Walking: ICOSS is around a 20 minute walk from the train station, 10-15 minutes from the city centre. To get to the heart of the city from the train station, follow the mirrored waterfall towards the Showroom cinema, then bear right, cross the road, carry on up, past Sheffield Hallam University, up the steps and cross the road again.

Taxis: There are taxi ranks at the train station, the interchange and beside the City Hall at Barker’s Pool. A taxi to ICOSS from the station should only take about five minutes, but can take longer if traffic is heavy.
