Wellbeing and health
To get the most out of your time in Leeds, look after your emotional and physical health - that way you'll be more likely to enjoy all aspects of student living.
Arriving in a new city is exciting but it can feel daunting and unfamiliar. Wherever you're from, take some time to settle in, participate in activities, make friends and be sure to look out for each other, yourself and your health so that you can stay happy and healthy.
After the excitement of arriving in Leeds and the whirlwind of the start of term, you'll begin to find a routine. Making friends can help combat feeling lost and homesick.
As a student in Leeds, you'll need to register with a doctor, and be familiar with where to go if you need help, treatment or advice.
