Support for our diverse students
Accommodation for families
Moving to Leeds with your family needs careful consideration. There are a number of things you need to know about before you arrive. We’ve put them all together to help with your decision making.
Change of personal details
Please let the University know immediately about any changes to your personal details so your records are up to date.
If you have children, it's likely that at some stage you'll need to arrange childcare so you can concentrate on your studies.
Meet other parents
Meeting other student parents and their children is a great way to make new friends, and an opportunity to offer one another mutual support and take part in family-friendly social activities.
Personalised Examination Arrangements
If you're disabled, ill, taking assessments abroad or unable to take an assessment due to religious observance, then special arrangements may be made for you. Find out what kind of adjustments can be made in order to enable you to sit your assessments, and how to notify us if you need to have special arrangements put in place.
Prayer, contemplation and faith-based support
Our quiet spaces, prayer facilities and faith-based support give you the chance to take a break, reflect, and connect with local faith communities.
