By Train

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

By Air

Leeds is served by two major airports: Leeds Bradford and Manchester. Regular flights are available from a huge number of European and International cities. Leeds Bradford airport is approximately 8 miles away from the University, so is an inexpensive taxi ride away.

By Car

If you are using satellite navigation our address details for the main entrance to our site are:

University of Leeds,
Woodhouse Lane,
(street listing can appear as Cavendish Road in some navigation systems)

Leeds is linked to the M1 and M62 and is very easily accessible. 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. We strongly recommend that you use public transport to reach Leeds, however we realise that this may not always be possible. If delegates are visiting the campus please either consider car sharing with colleagues, or using the local City Car Club scheme on arrival.


Parking on campus is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis. Charges and further information can be found on the University of Leeds Car Parking website.

Parking for disabled “blue badge” holders is available on campus for visitors. If you are a blue badge holder you are advised to enter the campus via the main barrier on Woodhouse Lane to show your badge. You can then be directed to the nearest available disabled parking bay to the area you are visiting.

There are a number of city centre car parks that are only a short walk from the campus:

Woodhouse Lane multi-storey LS1 3HQ 0.1 miles
Merrion Centre LS2 8PD 0.5 miles
St. Johns Centre (NCP) LS2 8LQ 0.7 miles
The Light LS1 8TL 0.7 miles
