Getting to our Headingley Campus
How to find us
Headingley is just three miles outside the centre of Leeds. Our campus is located within 100 acres of parkland, in perfect contrast to the bustling city, so if it is a nice day you can get out and stretch your legs while you are on campus. Our Carnegie Pavilion facility is also located nearby at the famous Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

Arriving by car:
During Open Days and Applicant Days, free parking is available on Headingley Campus and can be accessed via Church Wood Avenue. For sat nav please use LS16 5LF.
