Student Hub

Public Transport


Both our campuses and halls of residences are well connected by public transport.

The main City Campus buildings are between 2 and 14 mins walk from Leeds train station. Headingley campus is a 15 minute walk from Headingley train station and Headingley Carnegie Pavilion and Stand are a 12 and 8 minute walk from Headingley and Burley Park stations.

Both campuses have frequent bus services, including:
  • The Leeds City Bus that links the bus and rail stations to our main City Campus (£1/journey).

The 29 First Leeds bus services run between Leeds Student Village, Marsden House, Concept Place, City Campus, Sugarwell Court and Headingley Campus.

The 29X operates at peak times via Hyde Park Corner and Headingley Arndale Centre.

It's £1 for a single fare on production of a valid student card. You can see further information about bus frequency and prices here
