Travel directions to Human Resources

General travel information to the University including maps and directions by car and public transport:

HR is based on the third floor of Edinburgh Building, which is the tallest (5 storey) building at our City Campus on Chester Road, SR1 3SD (Building 18 on the campus map).

City Campus is close to the 'University' Metro station, two stops down from Sunderland train station on the metro line travelling towards South Hylton. On arrival, cross the footbridge over the railway line and walk straight ahead towards Chester Road, following the University directory signs.

Vehicle entrance to the City Campus car park is from the north, beside building 14 on the campus map.  If you have been told that a parking bay has been reserved for your visit, then the Reserved Parking is signposted and is between buildings 19 and 21.  Otherwise, please find a parking bay and then pay at the pay and display meters.

Pedestrian access to Edinburgh Building (from either the Metro or the car park) is through The Gateway (building 19).  follow the signage to Edinburgh East Lift and travel to the 3rd floor landing (E3), where you can ring through to HR on the wall-mounted phone.
