We’re located on the edge of the University of Leeds campus meaning we’re part of a world-leading academic community and close to the city centre, train station and our key partners.
Leeds has one of the fastest growing tech scenes in the UK and hosts the largest financial centre outside London. The city’s cutting-edge healthtech and life sciences sectors are recognised internationally. Nexus is a short walk from the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, which hosts one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe. Leeds is a hub for the region’s emerging Fintech, Legaltech, creative and digital, and Cleantech sectors. The city is also well known for its assets and capabilities in data and AI.
