Campus buildings

The Business School is based on the western edge of the University of Leeds campus. It is currently housed in four buildings, which include the impressively renovated 19th century Maurice Keyworth building, the Newlyn Building, which opened in 2019, and the recently refurbished Charles Thackrah and Clarendon buildings. In 2019 work also began on the new Esther Simpson building.
