Getting to the University

On Viewing Days we are unable to offer parking on campus, so recommend that you use public transport wherever possible. Leeds has many public transport links so it's often the quickest and simplest way of getting around. Find out how to find us and read the travel advice below.

By train: Leeds railway station connects us with all major UK cities and has a fast and efficient London service. For train information, tickets and timetables visit the National Rail Enquiries website

By coach: For coach details, visit the National Express website. From the bus and coach station you can take the number 6 bus to the main entrance to the University. 

By Bus: There are a number of excellent bus services in Leeds. Visit the West Yorkshire Metro website and First Leeds for timetables and general information.
From the bus and coach station, you can take bus number 6 to the University’s main entrance. From the city centre, the following buses will take you to the University’s main entrance: 1, 6, 28, 56 and 97. 

Car Parking: Due to the high number of visitors at the event we are unable to guarantee on-campus parking on our viewing days, except for Blue Badge holders. When returning to your car, you'll need to pay using one of the payment machines. These can be found in either the multi-storey care park, outside the Marjorie & Arnold Ziff Building or by The Edge Sports Centre. Please note that the University uses ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and failure to pay may result in parking charges.

There are number of main city centre car parks, most of which are only a short walk from our campus. We also recommend that you allow additional time to find a parking space, as traffic can be busy in the city centre.

The table below details some city centre car parks. Please remember that those closest to the University are likely to be the busiest.
