Details on our location and how to get to there.

How to find us

Leeds is a fantastic city for everyone. It’s small enough to get around easily on foot (or on your bike), but also extremely well connected by public transport.

Our City Campus is very central and spread over several buildings around Woodhouse Lane, a short walk from Leeds train station.For more information, you can check our Address & Maps page.

Registration, keynotes, parallel sessions, and all refreshment/lunch breaks will take place in The Rose Bowl, Leeds Beckett University, City Campus, Leeds, LS1 3HB.

The registration desk will be open in the Atrium (access via the Level 1 entrance opposite Leeds City Council Civic Hall.

We are just a few minutes’ walk from the main shopping centres, the First Direct Arena and heading out of town, Hyde Park.


The nearest airport is Leeds-Bradford.

There are two ways to get from the airport to Leeds city centre: by taxi or by bus. Taking a taxi is the fastest and easiest option – it takes 23 minutes for the cost of about £50. Alternatively, the A1 Flyer is the most direct bus service from Leeds Bradford Airport to Leeds Bus Station. It takes approximately 50 minutes to reach Leeds city centre and a single ticket costs £5.50. Full information can be found on the airport website.

Leeds has good motorway links from the M1, M62 and M621, making it easy to reach the city. There are a number of paid council run and private car parks available in the city centre. There is also the option to park at our Headingley Campus and get the free  university shuttle bus down to City Campus.
