Conference events will be taking place in 3 venues on the University of Leeds campus: the Parkinson Building, The Workshop Theatre, and University House (see images right). Please see the MeetinLeeds website to download a campus map, which shows the position of the Parkinson Building and University House. The Workshop Theatre is located opposite the Parkinson Building, on the right.
The University campus is a 20 minute walk from Leeds city station. If you would like to walk to the university, just follow these directions below:
Come out of the station into City square; with the Queens Hotel behind you, walk straight up Park Row. Continue up Park Row until the first major junction. Cross straight over The Headrow and continue up Cookridge Street. At the next set of lights go straight on passing Millennium Square on your left and Leeds City Museum on your right.
Turn left on to Woodhouse Lane, a busy main road. You’ll pass Leeds Metropolitan University on your left and our University campus begins in another 50 metres or so, on your left. To reach the Parkinson building, carry on up Woodhouse Lane to the clocktower building. You’ll be able to look at a map of campus there and plan where to go next.
