Leeds is linked to the M1 and M62. Parking on campus is very limited, and we are also committed to reducing our carbon emissions, so we encourage staff and visitors to walk or cycle where possible. City centre car parks are the best option and the nearest to campus is the Woodhouse Lane NCP multi-storey.
Parking for disabled blue badge holders is available on campus for visitors. If you are a blue badge holder you need to email [email protected] in advance of your visit with your name, the date of your visit and your registration number. You are advised to enter the campus via the main barrier on Woodhouse Lane to show your badge. You can then be directed to the nearest available disabled parking bay to the area you are visiting.
