Find the
University

Maps and information on the University website show where the University is in Leeds, and how to get here by car or public transport.

Parking/coaches

Campus parking for visitors is limited during weekdays. It is allocated on a first-come-first served basis and costs £7.00 for the day. Access is at the main entrance outside the Parkinson Building.

Coaches can drop off and pick up outside the Parkinson steps, but there are no parking spaces for coaches on the campus.

We recommend you use the nearby multi-storey car park on Woodhouse Lane.
