Student life

We’re a university bursting with life in a city loved by students. With something for everyone, Leeds has been named the best place to live in the North by The Sunday Times in 2024 and also ranked one of the top 10 UK cities most affordable for students by the Natwest Student Living Index in 2023. It's no wonder so many students choose to study at Leeds Beckett University every year and make it their home after graduation.

Looking for new ways to explore your interests and make friends with similar hobbies? Our fantastic selection of student union societies and athletic union sports clubs has you covered. With over 50 societies to choose from, all run by student committees, you'll find plenty of opportunities to get involved and make the most of your student life.

Campus and facilities

Our City Campus is very central and spread over several buildings around Woodhouse Lane. We are just a few minutes walk from the main shopping centres, the First Direct Arena and Hyde Park.

Headingley is just three miles outside the centre of Leeds. Our Headingley campus is located within 100 acres of parkland, a perfect contrast to the bustling city, so if it is a nice day you can get out and stretch your legs between lectures.

We offer a free inter-campus bus, making it easy to travel between both campuses.

As a dynamic modern university, we’re constantly growing and developing. We’ve built some of the most iconic buildings in Leeds, and our facilities, learning resources and teaching communities give you everything you need to succeed.
