Walking to the School of Maths from Leeds station:

After exiting the ticket barrier bear left in the lobby, and walk past the ticket office (which will be on your right). Continue as much as you can in a straight line, and you should emerge in City Square (Wellington Street). When you reach the campus, this campus map shows the location of the School
