Getting to the University
The University of Leeds is committed to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions caused by both commuting and business travel. We encourage visitors to use public transport, bicycles and their feet as often as possible.
The University campus is just a 20 minute walk from Leeds city station. Just follow the directions below and you'll be with us in no time at all:
Come out of the station into City square; with the Queens Hotel behind you, walk straight up Park Row. Continue up Park Row until the first major junction. Cross straight over The Headrow and continue up Cookridge Street. At the next set of lights go straight on passing Millennium Square on your left and Leeds City Museum on your right.
Turn left on to Woodhouse Lane, a busy main road. You'll pass Leeds Metropolitan University on your left and our University campus begins in another 50 metres or so, on your left. To reach the Parkinson building, carry on up Woodhouse Lane to the clocktower building. You'll be able to look at a map of campus there and plan where to go next.

If you're thinking about cycling to the University, we have secure bike racks, internal bike stores and showers. Get more information and download the Leeds City Council cycling map.
There is also a free city bus which stops at the bus and train stations and the southern end of campus (near the back of Leeds General Infirmary A&E) every 10 minutes from 6.30 am - 7.30 pm Mondays to Saturday.

Leeds is linked to the M1 and M62. Parking on campus is limited, and we are also committed to reducing our carbon emissions, so we encourage staff and visitors to walk or cycle where possible.
Parking is available on campus on a first come, first served basis, and the charge is £5.00. To use this car park please come to the main entrance by the Parkinson Building (LS2 9JT). For more car parking options please see Parkopedia.
