Directions and transport: Sheffield Business School is in the Stoddart Building, on Arundel Gate, in the city centre. Easy if using bus, tram or train. For arrival by car the most convenient parking is in the Science Park car park, which is behind the Student Union Hubs. Because of the one-way system, the best access is via Furnival Street then Arundel Lane. The car park is at the end (where it meets Charles Street) and is about three minutes' walk to the Business School. It is a pay and display car park and is in three sections - the first section may be full, but if you carry on through there are two additional sections where spaces are usually available. Note that street meters and council car parks are a flat £1 after 4.30pm.
