We are on the Western Campus next to the Business School (at the north end of the campus): 10 minutes walk from the Parkinson Building and 5 minutes walk from the School of Design.

Once on Campus, you can follow signs for the Maurice Keyworth Building, or look for number 21 on the University Campus Map.


Arriving by Train/Bus/Foot

Take the regular number 1 bus by exiting by the main station entrance (straight on from the barriers), once outside turn left down the station approach, cross the small pedestrian crossing and immediately turn right down Bishopgate for a few meters to the bus shelter (then see below).

Take a taxi from the front of the station to the University of Leeds Business School on Moorland Road (ULITA shares the same entrance).

Chapel entrance

To walk to ULITA from the station takes around 25-30 minutes (see below for a walking guide).

From the bus station take the 6, 28/28B or 97 to the University. Bus 56 from the city centre (The Headrow) stops directly outside ULITA.

Alight at the steps of the Parkinson Building (clock tower), follow the building to the left and walk through the campus on University Road, cross the pedestrian crossing at the top of the campus and enter the Business School foyer. Alternatively stay on the bus two more stops, alight at the Victoria monument and walk straight through Woodhouse Park, cross the pedestrian crossing and enter the Business School.

On Campus, follow signs for the Maurice Keyworth Building;  ULITA is connected to the Business School foyer.

Bus details can be found at http://www.wymetro.com/BusTravel/. On First buses, a day ticket may cost less than two returns.

See the University webpages for further travel information including a walking guide.
