The huge new base, on Boar Lane, comprises more than 54,000 square foot of office accommodation across seven floors.

It comes after majority shareholder Karrev and developer Kinrise finalised the lease of the 1 Trevelyan Square building with the university – which is set to be in use for the next academic year.

Kinrise co-founder George Aberdeen said: “We are delighted to have signed Leeds Trinity University at 1 Trevelyan Square.

“It has been a pleasure working with the university to deliver the first phase of their state-of-the-art, sustainable campus in the heart of Leeds. We are confident the new campus will be a catalyst for the final wave of regeneration in this area and the wider city centre.

“We are proud to have successfully curated a community-led site with independent food and drink operators, spaces for local businesses, students and visitors to meet and unwind.

“1 Trevelyan Square will complement our Main Campus in Horsforth and enable the University to work even more closely with key partners and employers, supporting the demand for skills.

This historic street and this magnificent building are a fitting location for Leeds Trinity, while this inward investment into Leeds proves, once again, this flourishing city is a magnet for talent.”
