vibrant student community

Headingley campus

Our Headingley Campus is situated just outside of the city centre in the picturesque suburbs and is easily accessible by public transport with regular direct buses into the city. Headingley is an extremely popular student area. It has its own vibrant community with bars, shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. Our beautiful campus is full of green spaces, wildlife and historical buildings. It’s a wonderful contrast from the modern city campus, which is ideal as when you join us you will have the opportunity to enjoy both.
