    Hi

    Thanks for your question!

    Unfortunately there is no student parking on campus (expect for disabled students who are blue badge holders), and parking at any Hall of Residence is very limited.

    If you are planning on living in Halls, you really don't need a car to get about Leeds. More than 65% of our students walk to the University, which is not surprising as most of our residences are within easy walking distance of campus, plus it's good exercise and great for your bank balance. You'll see many of our students walking to and from the University or city centre all year round.

    Leeds also has an excellent bus service, with frequent buses running throughout the day and into the early hours; journeys on FirstLeeds services between the University and Headingley (area popular for 2nd and 3rd year students for private accommodation) cost just £1 for any single journey. You can also buy unlimited daily/weekly tickets, and FirstLeeds also offer special monthly or term-time tickets just for students.


    If you're going to be living further away and looking to commute into university by car, there nearest public car park to the University is WOodhouse Lane Multi-Storey, and is around £5 for a full day. Alternatively, students who chose to drive often park on the streets around campus for free. The roads nearest to campus are mainly short stay (1-2 hours max), but there is normal on-street parking in Hyde Park which is just 10 minutes walk from campus.

    I hope that helps, let me know if you have any further questions

    Best wishes

    Amanda
