Campus and city maps

By Train or Bus

By train head to Bradford Interchange or Forster Square and either get on the free city bus or head into town and walk up the hill.

From central Bradford cross Centenary square (the pedestrianised area with the fountains and BBC big screen, that houses City Hall) and head in the direction of the old Odeon cinema. Once you are there walk up the hill (Great Horton Road), passing by the Alhambra Theatre on your left.  Keep walking and you'll see Bradford College and finally the University.  Stay on this road until just before you reach Unique Fitness and Lifestyle (the new sports centre).  You can then head right onto the campus and down the grassy hill to Theatre in the Mill (which is next to the Phoenix building).  Alternatively keep walking along Great Horton Road until it meets Shearbridge Road (look out for Bombay Stores) and turn right off Shearbridge Road opposite Bombay Stores and walk down the lane to get to the Theatre.

Free bus - get off at the stop directly opposite the University which is by Sainsbury's and Subway.
