Train station, Taxis & Driving

  • Please refer to our How to Find Us guide for comphrensive information on travelling to our City Campus
  • If you are traveling by car, free parking is available for visitors (you must register at the Main Entrance Desk-Richmond Building). Bradford is connected to the national motorway network via the M62 and M606. If you are travelling from the south, east or west of Bradford, you will probably find it most convenient to use the M62 and M606. If you are arriving from the north-west you will probably use the A629/A650 via Skipton and Keighley. From the north-east it is most convenient to use the A1 or A19, and reach Bradford via the A59 and then the A658 south of Harrogate.

Many road signs on the major routes into the city have the route to the University indicated by a mortarboard symbol.

  • The train station is a 15 min walk from the university and is situated on the right of the Town Hall as you go down from the university. Taxis can be called to collect/drop you outside the university (Main Entrance of Richmond Building). You will have to make the call. Metro Taxis 01274 733733 is the University of Bradford Students' Union preferred Taxi scheme.
