Both of our campuses have great locations.
Our City Campus is right in the heart of Leeds, with some of the best shopping and nightlife in the country less than a five minute walk away.
Our Headingley Campus is less than three miles from our City Campus, and is just ten minutes’ walk from one of the best known student areas in the country. Headingley, with its numerous bars, pubs and restaurants, is a great place to meet friends between lectures.
Our Headingley Campus has a rich and diverse history that goes back to Roman times. For centuries our campus was a family owned estate, which played host to visitors such as Oscar Wilde and Winston Churchill.
In contrast, our City Campus has a much more recent history with numerous iconic buildings helping to define the skyline of one of the most vibrant cities in the country.
Our Headingley Campus is set in picturesque grounds. Many of our buildings face the Acre, a grassy expanse that lends itself to snowman building in the winter and impromptu football matches in the summer.
At the head of the Acre sits the stately James Graham building, which houses both the library and the Great Hall. The library is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year.
