Our University

City Campus
Situated in the heart of Leeds, our City Campus is ideally placed. On our doorstep are hundreds of businesses and organisations that offer work placements and employment opportunities to many of our students.
Headingley Campus
Set in 100 acres of parkland at Beckett Park, with easy access to Leeds city centre, our campus has a rich history and heritage.

Headingley Campus, which is less than three miles from our City Campus, has modern sport science laboratories, animation and music studios and the latest computing labs. It’s where our main sport facilities are based including pitches, inside and outside tennis courts and a running track.


Open Days

The best way to find out about our campuses is to come see them in person. Get yourself along to one of our Open Days and take a closer look at what we have to offer.
