There will be road closures and changes to public transport in Leeds city centre and other areas along the route. Click here for more information about the road closures.


Temporary Road Closure

From Monday 4 June until Friday 6 July, there will be some access disruption to The Edge due to the road closure of Vernon road at the top end of campus. For further information about the road closure, click here.

The lower extended weights area will be closed from 19th March 2018 for two weeks for essential repair and maintenance work.

 

From Monday 28th November, it will no longer be possible to park under the Cherry Trees in the Orange Zone, however, plenty of alternative parking will still be available within the multi-storey car park and in The Edge car park.
