The Leeds Thomas Danby site, on Roundhay Road in Leeds, was known as the Thomas Danby Campus of the new college. The site was closed in September 2013[1] due to serious concerns regarding asbestos.[citation needed]

Leeds City College's new Printworks Campus, in Hunslet Road, opened in September 2013 to replace the Thomas Danby Campus.[2][3]

It was demolished in 2018 and the plot is now used for commercial purposes.[citation needed]
