How to find us

We are on the University of Leeds main campus in the Priestley Building, which is next to Chancellor’s Court.  The Priestley Building is location 88 on the downloadable map of campus.

Directions from Leeds train station

The Priestley Building is a 20 minute walk from Leeds train station. On exiting the station, turn left down Quebec Street, and then right onto King Street at the crossroads. Continue on to East Parade and cross The Headrow onto Calverley Street. Follow Calverley Street to a mini roundabout, taking the right hand exit onto Willow Terrace Road (shown in map below). Follow Willow Terrace Road past the entrance to the Edge, and take the steps or ramp on the right up to the Roger Stevens pond. Continue right at the top of the ramp and stairs and then turn left onto the large ramp that crosses in front of the Roger Stevens Building. At the crossroads in the path, take the right hand path and go up the wide steps at the far right hand corner of Chancellors Court and under the Priestley Building bridge. The entrance to the Priestley Building is on the left (beware the door with the in-built door handles). At the top of the stairs, turn left though the door and immediately right into the Priestley Centre hub.
