Where is GAMSAT held in Sheffield? | Sheffield test centre location

The Sheffield Gamsat is usually held in the Jurys Inn Hotel Sheffield, 19 Eyre Street, Sheffield, S1 4QW


However although ACER do tend to re-use the same venues for the test, the actual locations are not confirmed until you receive your official admissions ticket about two weeks before the test.

So to be on the safe side you should probably hold off until you get the official notification of the address before you make hotel reservations or other travel arrangements.


The nearest public transport to the hotel is Sheffield Train Station which is an 8 minute walk away. From the Sheffield Midland train station, head out of the main entrance and continue straight ahead towards The Howard Pub. Turn left onto Paternoster Row continue forward where the road bears to the right onto Furnival Street. The hotel is on the your left.

If coming by car the hotel does not have its own parking but the nearest public car park is a one minute walk away - the Moor Car Park a secure underground car park located at 158 Eyre St. You can stay the whole day for £6.50


Since this test centre is located inside a hotel, if you need a place to stay while you take the test why not stay right here for maximum convenience.

If not the nearest other hotels are the Sheffield Novotel Hotel at 50 Arundel Gate which is a 4 minute walk from Jurys Inn or the Ibis Budget Hotel St. Mary's Gate at 10A St Marys Gate which is a 9 minute walk from the test centre.
