What's my new address?
Kirkstall Brewery, Broad Lane, Leeds LS5 3EE
How do I get to Headingley Campus?Headingley Campus is just a 30-minute walk away- approximately 1.6 miles and the number 39 bus will take you there in just 15 minutes!
However, by bike you can get there in 10 minutes. If you need access to a bike whilst at University then Leeds Beckett has a great Bike Hire scheme for students (http://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/studenthub/cycling/) with bike hire from as little as £35.
How do I get to City Campus?City Campus is slightly further away at just under 3 miles. So, if you don't fancy the hour walk, why not cycle there in just 20 minutes? Alternatively, you can hop on buses 33, 33A, 50, 670, 671 or 760 for half an hour.
What can I do nearby?
Just past the retail park you will find Kirkstall Leisure Centre where you can satisfy all your sporting needs. Or if you are feeling cultural you can visit the beautiful ruins of Kirkstall Abbey that is a 15 minute walk away.
The Vault is Kirkstall Brewery’s on-site bar and social spaces – useful for studying, events, films, parties and club nights, a great place to make new friends. Keep up to date with what’s going on at The Vault by liking their Facebook page.
